Ferrari 458 Italia is “Best of the Best” for Robb Report China

Maranello, 27th September – The 458 Italia’s success continues unabated. Just last night, in fact, the car won its sixth award of 2010 when it was named Super Sportscar of the Year at a ceremony in Shanghai. The “Best of the Best Award” came courtesy of the editors at the prestige international Robb Report China magazine. They were flanked in their decision-making by a panel of automotive experts and chose the 458 Italia over the many competitors in its category.

In the 12 months since its unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the 458 Italia has earned widespread critical and public acclaim, not merely in response to high profile achievements such as being named Car of the Year by BBC’s Top Gear Magazine, but also as a result of its performance in very tough test-drives on both track and road. In recent months, the mid-rear engined 8-cylinder has undergone in-depth specialist testing right across the globe which have highlighted its exceptional performance standards and superlative driving pleasure. In fact, the authoritative British car magazine, Autocar described it thus: “The 458 Italia is the new sportscar benchmark”.
