The making of Two Ferrari 458 Italias at play - click above image to watch the video

If you make a really hot, truly exotic supercar, you can make a two minute promo video that will attract tons of Internet eyes. When you're Ferrari and you've just unleashed the sexy 458 Italia, you can make one of the best teaser videos of all-time and then make a second, almost as cool video about the making of the first video.

In the footage, the director says that the goal is to make a film where the viewer gets the feeling that he or she is driving the vehicle themselves. We know we like the video, but we're pretty sure we would have rather been behind the wheel. Actually, we're thinking of making a tribute video of the 458 Italia trailer. All we need is a modified Fiat, a Mercedes SUV loaded up with cranes and cameras, a Ferrari pace car rigged with cameras, some stunt drivers, a track and a film crew. Oh, and two Ferrari 458 Italias. Hit the jump to watch the "making of" video, as well as the finished product.

      That was pure sex.

      Nice car! Camera work was pretty good but I may have seen better on Top Gear.

      Looks like a kit car. I'm not doubting the performance in any way, and i understand that sometimes aerodynamics do take a toll on the looks, buuuuuut..... looks like a kit car.

      The car looks like a killer whale with droopy eyes. The engine is a GOD send though. They could have dropped the sound track and let us listen to the glorious v-8 in the o'l girl.

      damn how about that 430 Scuderia camera car that was sick.
      • 5 Years Ago
      "the sexy 458 Italia?" Does no one else think that is this car is highly unattractive?
        • 5 Years Ago
        yes. but it's still a ferrari, and they'll undoubtedly not produce anything with such an offensive eye line again. from the rear 3/4s it's acceptable. let's hope topgear stays on long enough to produce an even better film with this and the mclaren going at it. well more like the mclaren than the ferrari arriving a few or more seconds after, but still you get the picture

        Yeah...sexy is not a word I can use to describe this car. From the rear it looks like it just had a lyposuction and they decided to wrap the flappy extra skin over the rear glass...

        There are many, but the majority of people think it is very good looking.
      • 5 Years Ago
      These men are doing God's work.
      Viva Ferrari!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Pretty cool
