How Can This 458 Italia Keep Up With This Aventador?

Supercar

Naturally aspirated V8 vs V12.

It’s no secret that Ferrari adjusts its supercars to perform at a better level for the press, but even this seems like a stretch for a Ferrari 458 Italia. GTBOARD.com took a 458 Italia press car and put it up against a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. The rivalry between the two automakers harks back to when Lamborghini first opened its doors and is a heated one, but the Aventador is in a league above the 458, so what gives? The 458’s 4.5-liter V8 makes 570 hp, while the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V12 makes 691 hp.

This should’ve been an easy win for the Aventador, but both races paint a different picture. Any guesses as to how the 458 was able to keep up with the Aventador?
