It has been reported that Cristiano Ronaldo will be test driving the new Ferrari 458 Italia in Maranello. The soccer player is so interested in the new Ferrari 458 Italia that he has scheduled a trip to Maranello where he will have the chance to get behind the wheel of the new car for a test drive. It is fortunate for Cristiano Ronaldo that he is a famous talented footballer as not just anyone can book a run round the Fiorano circuit in a newly street legal Ferrari 458 Italia.
Cristiano Ronaldo will have his hands full if the reports are true and he takes to the wheel in this car as under the rear deck lid Ferrari has placed a 4.5 Liter V8 engine equipped with the traditional Ferrari flat crankshaft that gives the mid-engine 458 sports cars their signature top end bark. The unit produces 570 HP at a rather high 9000 RPM and still achieves18 mpg. The car weighs only 3042 pounds and will rocket from 0 to 60mph in just 3.4 seconds and hits a top speed of 202mph.
Cristiano Ronaldo had an unfortunate accident when he was living in Manchester in his Ferrari 599 GTB Fiornano, he was very lucky to come out of it unscathed as the Ferrari was a complete write-off. Since the accident Cristano Ronaldo has been seen viewing a selection of Ferrari’s so maybe the new Ferrari 458 is what he has been waiting for.
