A 16-year old girl from Ireland has made the surprise of a lifetime to her boyfriend who she managed to surprise by lending a Ferrari 458 for the prom night.
Michaela Duddy, a 16-year old high school graduate from Ireland has decided to surprise her prom date, Jason Flood, with the ride of his life, a fire-red Ferrari 458 Italia, who she rented from a family friend. The two of them have been dating for more than a year so this is a good proof that women know us petrol heads better than we think. The good news is that the couple traveled in style but the bad part is that they had to hire a chauffeur.
“Jason loved the thought and we had a great night. He’s mad about cars and just couldn’t believe it when the Ferrari pulled up on the street. It does leave me with a bit of a problem in that how do I top that with a Christmas present”, said Michaela to the Mirror.
The Ferrari 458 is being produced in two body styles, coupe and roadster, and offered with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The model has been assembled since 2009 and rumors are saying that it will soon get a replacement. Power is coming from a 4.5 liter V8 engine, rated at 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
