Behold An Eardrum-Shattering, Flame-Throwing Ferrari 458 Italia

They say less is more, and that’s actually a good way to describe this Ferrari 458 Italia.

The Italian supercar, which was filmed on the streets of San Francisco before being taken on the highway for some nighttime fun, is all stock, with the exception of an aftermarket exhaust system.

Made by Novitec, it enhances the sound of the naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 , with the occasional crackles and pops. The addictive sound reaches entirely new levels in the tunnel, so you may want to adjust the volume accordingly before hitting the play button. And just in case you were wondering if it can shoot flames, the answer is yes.

That mid-mounted V8 is good for 570 PS (562 hp / 419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, which enables the 458 to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 325 km/h (202 mph).

The 458 is the last of its kind to feature an old school naturally aspirated engine, as its successor, the 488, has ditched it in favor of a twin-turbo 3.9 liter V8. With the new unit comes an even more impressive output: 670 PS (661 hp / 492 kW) and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque, along with the ability to hit 100 km/ (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, and a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). No matter what magic Ferrari has worked into it, though, it’ll never match the instant throttle response, shrieking howl or stratospheric redline of the Italia’s powerplant.
