The Ferrari 458 was manufactured from 2009 to 2015, and several variants followed the introduction of the Ferrari 458 Italia Coupe that debuted for model-year 2010. For this reason, the Ferrari 458 dimensions will vary slightly depending on whether you’re looking at the Ferrari 458 Italia (2010–2015), the Ferrari 458 Spider (2011–2015), the Ferrari 458 Speciale (2013–2015), or the Ferrari 458 Speciale A (2014–2015). Several racing variants were also produced in extremely limited quantities during this time.

Ready to find the perfect match? Our in-depth guide covers everything you need to know about the Ferrari 458 length, width, height, and more!

Ferrari 458 Dimensions: Exterior

Ferrari’s designers have cultivated an unmistakable look for their vehicles over the years, and the coupes and convertibles that bear their badges are often distinguished by a few key elements—frequently carried over from the Prancing Horse’s experience in Formula One. 

Although the 458 has unique styling elements, readers shouldn’t be surprised to learn that the sleek and aerodynamic frame of this Pininfarina-designed sports car sits extremely low to the ground, on haunches that give it an aggressive yet elegant stance. We’ve laid out the most important exterior Ferrari 458 dimensions below:

Exterior Dimensions: Ferrari 458 Italia

  • Ferrari 458 Length: 178.2 inches
  • Ferrari 458 Width: 76.3 inches (Mirrors In)
  • Ferrari 458 Height: 47.8 inches
  • Ferrari 458 Wheelbase: 104.3 inches
  • Ferrari 458 Weight: 3,450 pounds (Base Curb Weight)
  • Ferrari 458 Weight/Power Ratio: 7.16 pounds per kW
  • Ferrari 458 Weight Distribution: 42% Front / 58% Rear

The convertible Ferrari 458 Spider has a higher base weight thanks to its retractable hardtop roof. The Speciale and Speciale A models, which both featured higher-output engines, are also somewhat heavier than the Ferrari 458 Italia. And although one can point to certain other distinguishing features—for example, the unique front air intakes and fascia on the Speciale models—the Ferrari 458 height, length, and width stay more or less identical across the lineup.

Ferrari 458 Dimensions: Interior

The Ferrari 458 Italia seats up to two passengers while providing more than enough space for both riders to stay comfortable on longer drives from Chicago to Milwaukee—or beyond. Review the specs for yourself:

Interior Dimensions: Ferrari 458 Italia

  • Ferrari 458 Seating Capacity: Two Passengers
  • Ferrari 458 Headroom: 37.5 inches
  • Ferrari 458 Legroom: 45 inches
  • Ferrari 458 Trunk Volume: 8.1 cubic feet

Convertible 458 variants—including the 458 Spider and the 458 Speciale A—will offer less trunk space, since these models need room to store their drop-tops. On the other hand, even though 37.5 inches of headroom is nothing to sneeze at, taller riders may appreciate the extra headroom and visibility offered by the convertible when its roof is down.

In other respects, the Ferrari 458 dimensions remain broadly consistent regardless of which model you decide to bring home.
