If you're anything like me, you probably licked your screen upon seeing the Ferrari 458 Italia.

It's not every day that the world gets an all-new Ferrari to lust after (not that one, this one). So when the Italian automaker unveils a new rolling work of art, people take notice.

Polyphony Digital and Turn 10 have both created digital tributes to the super sexy Ferrari 458 Italia using their respective Gran Turismo 5 and Forza Motorsport 3 game engines. But which is better? Ultimately, a pair of glossy prerendered videos says very little about which game is better. Check them out below and sound off in the comments section.

I can barely tell the difference between digital and real life at times, so--while we're at it--be sure to check out Ferrari's official live action 458 Italia teaser video.
