Passione Rossa of "Ferrari Beverly Hills"> .As every new Ferrari, the Ferrari 458 Italia has a unique design approach and technology innovations to achieve indisputable performance and driving experience. Inquiry about the Ferrari 458 today at Authorized Ferrari dealers. Article City>

The 458 Italia is equipped with a racing manettino switch leading toward more sporting set ups and giving the driver a wider selection of electronic controls parameters. The ICE setting saw in the F430 has been removed, while the CT setting has been added in order to deactivate the traction control and at the same time maintain the stability control. There are five different manettino positions and conditions: Low Grip, Sport, Race, CT and CTS. Low Grip setting provides maximum grip under all driving conditions, and it is particularly suited for low grip surfaces. The emphasis is on comfort and stability without compromising the handling. Sport is the best setting for day to day driving and guarantees great safety under good grip. Race is particularly suitable for track driving providing maximum performance and stability in optimal grip situations. CT helps the driver improving his driving skills in safety, by keeping active the stability control. It allows over-steer right to the edge of the car’s limits and guarantees enhanced driving pleasure and fun behind the wheel, particularly on the track. Under CTS setting, both stability and traction control systems are deactivated, giving the driver maximum freedom and control on the track. No electronic systems intervene on the vehicle stability with the exception of E-diff3 and ABS.

On the 458 Italia, the driver can decouple the suspension damping from the electronic configuration selected on the manettino. The suspension decoupling button offers improved “filtering” of uneven road surfaces in order to improve performance and handling on uneven broken surfaces, such as the ones at the Nürburgring race track.

The launch control button is instead designed to offer the best possible acceleration from standstill. It delivers the maximum possible torque to the ground and prevents wheel spin as the car accelerates away. Its activation is indicated in the instrument panel. To start using the Launch control, the manettino must be selected on race, CT or CTS setting. With the car still at standstill, the driver then needs to put the gearbox in manual, selects first gear, pushes the launch control, presses the accelerator pedal and then releases the brake pedal.

The stylistic interior choices developed by Ferrari Centro Stile reflect a functional, ergonomic cockpit design. The driver is set in the center of a streamlined and intuitive layout, which is very much in line with the marquee’s signature styling cues.

The Hours was an exhibition of contemporary Latin-American art on display at IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) from 05 Oct 2005 to 15 Jan 2006.

This exhibit was on display in the courtyard of IMMA and was able to be photographed, but the rest of the exhibit was not.

The Daros-Latinamerica Collection is among the most important private collections of contemporary art in Europe, with its own museum in Zurich. For the last five years the museum has also been collecting Latin- American art, including the most influential Latin American artists of the last two decades, such as Guillermo Kuitca (Argentina), Doris Salcedo (Colombia), Marta Maria Pérez Bravo (Cuba), Vik Muniz (Brazil) and Santiago Sierra (Spain/Mexico). The show at IMMA will be the first presentation of the collection outside Switzerland and will occupy the East Wing, the courtyard and the gardens.
