Boardwalk Ferrari in Plano, TX isn't necessarily interested in staying on top of all the latest celebrity gossip. We're more inclined to follow buzz surrounding automotive news instead. But when these two realms cross paths and Ferrari is involved, you can be sure we're going to gather up all the exciting details.
Recently, Boardwalk Ferrari discovered that NBA star Kobe Bryant became the extremely proud owner of a brand-new, ultra-fast Ferrari 458 Italia. It came as a surprise to no one of course, that the popular basketball athlete paid the top-ticket price of $329,000 up front for his equally star-worthy supercar.
While we're certainly delighted to see a suave new Ferrari model carrying around the likes of Kobe Bryant, we're even more thrilled to know that the NBA star has chosen such a technology-driven option. According to Motor Authority, the Ferrari 458 Italia, "represents one of the largest leaps forward in technology, performance and emissions ever seen."1
How so? For starters, the slick coupe's 4.5-liter V-8 engine nabbed the Best Performance Engine category in the 2011 International Engine of the Year competition. At 570 ponies of power, it's not hard to see why. In addition to performance, the 458 Italia hosts all the innovative technologies you'd expect from Ferrari with a healthy round of safety features to boot.
Though we can't all be NBA champions, Boardwalk Ferrari would like to point out that any enthusiast in the Plano area and beyond is invited to stop by 6300 International Pkwy Plano, TX 75093 to experience a new Ferrari vehicle for his or herself.
