Ferrari 458 Italia with HELE: Ferrari’s Wild Card For Geneva Show

Added in: News


If you thought that the FF was the only one to make a debut at the Geneva Auto Show then you are mistaken as fresh news smells of Ferrari also showcasing their Eco friendly version of the Ferrari 458 Italia. The Show version will incorporate the HELE (High Emotion Low Emission) system inherited from the Ferrari California which was showcased at the 2008 Paris show.

The 458 Italia has a Stop & Start system; HELE incorporates new intelligent engine fan and fuel pump control, electronic air-conditioning compressor displacement control and a gear-shift pattern that adapts to driving style. All of these solutions cut emissions and boost sportiness. In fact, in terms of the cooling system, the introduction of the brushless motor and continual fan speed control has allowed the Ferrari technicians to decrease current absorption and cut the system’s weight by over 2 kg as well as reduce aerodynamic drag by 5 per cent at high speeds. Finally you have a Ferrari with all its awe and power but with an added advantage of around 11% (275 g CO2\km) lesser emissions over the standard model which had 307 g CO2\km

Now that may sound little but a small step in saving the environment goes a long way.
