Ferrari 458 Italia Photo Gallery from the Frankfurt Show, Plus Full Technical Specs

We couldn't leave you without a proper photo album of the futuristic-looking Ferrari F458 Italia from the Prancing Horse's Frankfurt Motor Show booth, and well, just follow the jump to check it out. Ferrari also released full technical specs on the F430's successor that comes with a new 4.5-liter V8 with direct injection that punches out 570 horsepower at a screeching 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 540Nm or 398.2 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm. All that grunt is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch gearbox.

With a dry weight of 1380 kg (3,042 lbs), the 458 Italia boasts a weight-power ratio of 2.42 kg, and according to Ferrari, the supercar can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in under 3.4 seconds and hit a top speed of over 325 km/h or 202mph.

While we seriously doubt that anyone cares that the new Prancing Horse model returns 13.3 lt/100 km or 17.7mpg U.S. and 307 g/km respectively in the combined cycle, we're pretty sure that you'll be interested to know the 458 Italia is only a tenth of a second slower than the almighty Enzo (1 min and 24.9 sec) on the Fiorano circuit with an official lap time of just 1 minute and 25 seconds.

Stay tuned on Auto Cars 2011 as we we're also preparing to upload a video from Ferrari's presentation of the 458 Italia at the Frankfurt Show.
