Even if Mario Balotelli can’t be considered lucky after losing the UEFA Euro 2012 with his national team, one thing is for sure, football remains the king of sports and anyone who plays well enough to make it to the national team is also paid like a king. The 21-year old striker for Manchester City is entering the long list of celebrities who own a Ferrari 458 Italia, like Kim Kardashian, Simon Cowell, The Dream, Mesut Ozil, Valentino Rossi or Ozzy Osbourne, after been recently spotted on the road while driving his Italian supercar, accompanied by a young brunette.
The Ferrari 458 Italia has been officially presented to the public back in 2009 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Italian supercar is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, shared with Maserati, which is developing a total output of 562 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm of torque available at 6,000 rpm.
