Teaser videos of the Ferrari 458 Italia in two different video games have just been released: a great cure for the non-extremely wealthy.
Wanting to drive the new Ferrari 458 Italia, but you don't have a few hundred thousand euros lying around? Two different video games promise to offer fans the opportunity, allbeit a simulated one.
The 570-horsepower car will feature prominently in Gran Turismo 5, for the Sony Playstation 3, and in Forza 3, a game made for the XBox 360. You can watch videos of the car in both games right here on WCF. While the shorter, Forza video shows the car as fitting in perfectly against drawn landscapes, the PS3 video shows intricately detailed animations with the car's lighting as a focal point.
Ferrari introduced their latest flashy car at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this month. With a 4.5-liter V8 engine generating up to 398 ft-lb of torque, the F430 replacement is capable of a 0-100 km/h time in 3.4 seconds. The car tops out at 202 mph.
