Is it possible for the renown super car maker Ferrari to produce a potent vehicle worthy to wear the Ferrari badge and get decent fuel mileage? According to Ferrari engineers they will be producing the 458 Italia, complete with a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds and will do so at 17 mpg.
Take this announcement with a grain of salt, especially considering actual specs have yet to be released. Furthermore, the harder you stomp the right pedal the faster the fuel gauge drops, no matter the technology. I would think it would be pretty difficult to keep the foot off the go fast pedal in something as sleek and sexy as a Ferrari.
