458 F1 screams ftw
Yes, one of the best sounding Ferraris ever made! And the design is perfect!
If you buy a Ferrari and "spend most of the time in low revs," then you don't appreciate what you've purchased! I have a stock exhaust on my 458 and it sounds amazing. I've gone through many tunnels and it just screams.
True, sound is/was the essence of Formula 1 Ferrari. F1 sound is the epiphany of automotive symphony that stimulates the vestibulocochlear nerve reverberating joyful auditory bliss.
This will be a lost art in automotive history that the younger generation sadly will never appreciate.
The 458 and Speciale are the Last of the Mohicans.

If you think a stock 458 sounds good, a 458 with the OE Ferrari sport silencers sounds that much better, you can still find dealerships with stock here and there. Not obnoxious, doesn’t change the note, just 25% louder and sharper.
Do toy think ferrari will ever build car with NA v6 or v8? turbowill never sound NA good as NA, or maybe one day we will se electric turbo not mount on exchaust pipe ....
I need to do the same!
What exactly did you have done so I can look into replicating it...thanks!
Full system IPE: headers, test pipes, and their exhaust (no CEL).
I’ll have to look into cost because I had a friend was able to discount for me. Pretty sure all 3 total retail is still under $10k.
Edit: did a quick search, Velos sells:
Test pipes $2k

Couldn't have said it better myself.
I'm always mildly amused when people start talking about "how great the 488 sounds". It sounds like crap.
I was just telling my girlfriend last night: I'm getting more and more worried about the future. What's coming down the road in a few more years here? A turbo V6 with some sort of hybrid KERS setup for the street? I mean I'm sure it will be modern and space-age and all that, but will it move me? Will I love it and want to care for it? Will it make my day better when I find a few free moments to escape the office and go for a drive? The 488 sure didn't do that - not even close. I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to have to go back and re-buy my old 458 Italia?
For me, I'm so Ferrari loyal that I kinda only want a Ferrari. Actually, not "kinda" - for me, it's only been the Ferrari dream since I was 16 years old. I feel like anything else is 2nd best as far as cars go. If Ferrari doesn't make something amazing, I'm just stuck driving my pickup truck around town for fun.
I'm seriously starting to dream about the Lusso... wtf
...what a joke. Some of you guys need to give it up. In case you didn't know, it's starting to look like you've got nothing else to hold on to. Sad....for you guy's that is.
Not a Italia, a Spider! It’s sounds soooo much better!
You mean he’s not allowed to express his opinion about what makes him passionate about cars?
You mean it is a “joke” that great many car enthusiasts like something other than what you like?
No - what I mean is its a joke how some keep going on and on about it. It's as if that's all they have to hang on to. Nothing at all wrong with having a differing opinion but to keep laboring the same old worn out opinion like a broken record indicates perhaps some can't be as happy as they make out they are and have to try and rain on others pleasure in a bid to make themselves feel good somehow. It's as if the truth must be such that they are so annoyed the 488 sounds so good they just can't deal with it.... I mean this thread started in 2016 and it's much the same guys pushing the same old barrow and it's 2019. Like seriously? I mean it's time to get over it and move on fellas....and let others enjoy what they like too....if that's humanly possible.
Okay, gotcha...one is only allowed to express new opinions that differ with your’s. Noted.
I assume new and old opinions that agree with you are acceptable however.
Sure glad not all 458 owners behave like the select few here. It's called being happy with your own lot. You should try it one day.
Stop fighting, you guys look like a cute gay couple, simply, simply lovely.
I really don't understand you.
Some guys with a 458 state that they prefer the sound to the 488...and you act as though you are the final arbitrator of sound quality perception and then take it two steps further claiming that the "real" motivations for doing so reside in some deep inner psychological trauma about 1) not being able to afford a 488 and thus "sour grapes", and 2) are generally unhappy with their lot in life.
Your armchair psychological assessments, and endless grandstanding about this issue as well as McClaren issues have now consigned you to be only the second person in my 13 years on FChat to be placed on ignore (the other guy waxes poetic about everything supercar, yet doesn't even drive a car and either lives in LA or Canada...but we can't be sure....you're in good company).
For the record I prefer the sound of the 458 over the 488, and I could buy dozens of 488s if I so chose, and I am very very happy with my station in life.
^ See what I mean, LOL.
I bought 3 458’s and am not ruling out a 4th.
I hope the BBrother will rerun is to glory though with sound. If not I remain in Performante and 458 and TDF land.
But I too dream of a Lusso and that my friend IS odd!
I personally prefer the sound of 458 to 488.
Says the man driving a convertible...
Ehehe such a gay comment. I wish most most people in the world would be half as nice as any gay person I know.
They are owesome!
And.... I do love my gay car ahah
My ex business partner was gay. I always have to specifically include the word "business" when talking about him, otherwise people think my ex-partner was gay...
Ahahah good one
Gay means happy, so I’m quite gay when I drive my gay car. So much gayness!
Just like members of the forum getting upset with such simple things. Just enjoy your cars man.
