How to build a Ferrari 458 Italia engine

ferrari 458 italia engineGenerally speaking, we prefer driving cars to building them. Still, you can’t do the former if the latter isn’t taken care of. And since one of the cars at the top of our “must drive” list is the Ferrari 458 Italia, naturally we’re curious to see what it takes to put one together. Thankfully for us, then, Ferrari brought a video crew into its Maranello, Italyfactory, and we’re gifted a first-hand view of an engine coming to life.The Prancing Horse’s 4.5-liter V8 produces 562 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough energy to move the 458 Italia from 0-62 miles per hour in around 3.4 seconds. Keep the gas to the floor and you’ll eventually see 202 miles per hour.

What does it take to bring that mill to life?
