Building the Ferrari 458 Italia

Posted by @ 5:04 PM on Sep 25, 2011

The Ferrari 458 Italia is probably the prettiest Ferrari to come out of their factories for a couple decades. It’s also a car that Ferrari is especially proud of and rightfully so. To that end they’ve put together a series of videos that walk you through the process of creating a 458 from raw bars of aluminum to the finished car ready to go into the garages of rich and lucky people. Watching these videos will kill an hour or so of your time, but I (and perhaps a few others will) find it very interesting. By the time you finish watching these videos the massive price tag of the Italia, around the US$250,000 mark, suddenly starts to make some sense.
