I'm no Ferrari expert but the Ferrari 458 does have some of the key features that I can remember from the one I saw. The view of the engine through the rear glass, and the general lack of badging, apart from the pininfarina mark at the side.

Shown in a variety of colours on the thread where the pic above came from even a brown!

I love that car in yellow :-D Shame they didn't paint the top of the engine in the same shade. That would have looked awesome!

When I was a child I used Corona bottles with Nescafe jars to make cheap (but effective) barometers. It go so that my Mum would look at it to see what the weather might bring.
