Imagination's a beast, and the beast must be fed. So if you're an automotive enthusiast looking for a good way to waste some time, grab a fork and knife, because Ferrari has launched its online configuration utility for the new 458 Italia.

The new supercar isn't on the street yet, and so far we've only seen it in bright red and yellow. Ferrari's color catalog, however, extends far beyond those two primary shades to include silvers, grays, blacks and more...plus a few more shades of red, of course. This is a Ferrari, after all, and Ferraris belong in red...especially the mid-engined ones. We'd go for this more subdued shade, Rosso Mugello.

The configurator also lets you choose from a number of options inside and out, with choices for contrasting leather upholstery on everything. Have a go and let us know how you'd order yours in Comments below. Thanks for the tip, Matt!
