Boasting a futuristic Pininfarina motif, the 458 Italia has a compact aerodynamic affect which helps to downgrade drag and mend downforce (which is 140 kg at 200km/h). The front ended skin a bold fence which houses small aero-elastic winglets “which breed downforce and, as velocity rises, deform to shrink the slice of the radiator inlets and cut drag.” Elsewhere, the car features small openings between the covering and headlights for added engine cooling. Out back, the 458 has aggressive rear end which houses a solid diffuser, California-mode taillights, and three axis-mounted exhaust tips.
