Our Ferrari 458 Italia is probably the most desirable car in the world. We now have an Oakley design in stock, check out the amazing pictures.
This new Ferrari is perhaps the most well received Ferrari ever produced at Maranello with rightly rave reviews from everyone that has been lucky enough to drive it. Taking the innovative spirit of this the most famous of all super car makers and blending it with a totally fresh looking design makes this the first Ferrari for the next decade.
Using their extensive experience in Formula 1 has also helped with the development of the 458 Italia with extensive use of this technology in the aerodynamics, instrumentation, ergonomics, handling, engine and design.
The power delivery is shockingly smooth and at low speed and revs you could be mistaken for thinking you were in a Mercedes, but that is soon shot from your imagination when you press the loud peddle and evry hair and goose pimple on your flesh makes an appearence, it really is that good. Admittedly, the media system will take some getting used to as it is very fiddly, but who cares when the V8 is sitting about 18 inches behind you.
Lamborghini have been ruling the roost in recent years as far as I am concerened, but there is a new Prancing Horse in town that has just picked up the bulls reigns and rode it out of town.

Stephen and Team,
I have only one word to describe the Ferrari 458 Italia – awesome. The way it builds acceleration is truly remarkable. I have driven its predecessor, the Ferrari F430, and Lamborghini’s LP560-4 and neither of these two cars could be described as a slouch, however, the 458 Italia is in a different league when it comes to acceleration. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission provides for seamless shifts, whether in auto or manual. The 458 Italia is a truly sublime machine.
We had a fantastic time in the 458 and wanted to thank you for making it possible – it will take a long time for the Cheshire cat like grin to disappear after such a great experience. Premiere Velocity exceeded our expectations every step of the way, from the initial booking through to collection. The team at PV are incredibly professional and courteous and made the whole experience of renting a super car an absolute joy.
We have already selected our next two rentals - next up, the Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder and after that, the Lamborghini Aventador. We had better start saving!
Steve & Laura
I thought that it could not get any better than the Lamborghini LP560-4 which is still a tremendous car and still has a special place in my heart but the phenomenal Ferrari 458 Italia has replaced the Lambo with the honour of becoming my favourite supercar and I have had many of the world’s finest in my time.
The epic 458 has taken the auto industry by storm and has raised the standards in the supercar game.
I have had an F430 Spider which was terrific in every way imaginable and is still considered to be one of the all time greats but the 458 is much more powerful, mechanically adjusted and technologically advanced with its road reading capabilities and blissful poise and precision, sticking to the road as if it was driving on rails. The 458 is on a higher level compared to its competitors.
A highly polished performer, the 458 delivers earth- shattering yet graceful acceleration, super sharp and responsive braking and steering, ultra smooth millisecond gear changes in both auto and F1 modes and super tight cornering. You can feel the rich racing pedigree instilled in the 458.
The orchestral V8’s lion-like roar is unforgettable.
The 458 personifies technical excellence.
One thing that was surprising about the 458 is that it is so quiet at low speeds, ideal for not waking up the neighbours and for sneaking back indoors in the middle of the night without anyone noticing.
The interior, which was specially customised for Premiere Velocity, is beautifully constructed and simplistic with touches of carbon fibre and the driving console is so basically set up, driver friendly and easy to understand and configure.
Customisations to the interior include very cushy sports seats in black leather with red stitching and red prancing horse emblems on the headrests along with red seatbelts. These are very eye-catching options and sensible choices made by Premiere Velocity.
The look of the rosso corsa red exterior is to die for. Curvaceous and artistically streamlined yet angular, incorporating both modern and classical design. The LED lights are a work of art and the Premiere Velocity trademark matte black wheels really highlight the custom yellow brake callipers. Marvellous.
In keeping with tradition, the 458 pays homage to its forefathers. You can see influences of the legendary 288 GTO and F40 (e.g. golden/triple exhausts) and the Enzo-esque back lights finish off the car dramatically. Ferrari have gone old school with the 458 but at the same time they have kept contemporary, fresh and cutting edge.
Lots of people who had seen the car told me that I had made their day and it was also amusing to see a number of passersby saluting and jokingly bowing down as I drove by.
Many school and college kids were overexcited when they saw the 458 cruise by and hopefully this has inspired them to stay in school, stay out of trouble and to work hard to get a supercar for themselves when they grow up. Driving this car does make you feel like a kid again.
I have had an absolutely amazing experience in the 458 and I had waited a long time for this car and it was definitely well worth the wait and I would like to thank everyone at Premiere Velocity for all their efforts in making all of this possible. A dream come true.
The 458 is not just a supercar but a spectacular event on wheels. Poetry in motion.
The car was a big hit in the West End especially among the supercar driving Arabian community.
If you want to know what it feels like to be an Oil Sheikh then this is the car for you.
