Capristo Reveals Soul of 458 Spider


New engine hood boosts torque and ensures the high-revving 4.5-liter V8 is always on display.

Better known for its exquisite exhaust systems, Capristo also dabbles in the creation of individual body parts. So when Ferrari 458 Spider owners complained the drop-top Italia was lacking a decent vantage point of the red-cammed 4.5-liter V8, the aftermarket firm got to work. After a long and expensive development period, Antonio Capristo's team created a hood with an unlacquered vertically-centered transparent glass pane that offers an uninterrupted view of the 8-cylinder engine.

Higher and more aggressive air vents aid the view and also allows the air intake of the airbox to suck in more air at high speeds. The result us an additional 18 pound-feet of torque. All parts are made from bakes carbon and the complete set is priced at 9,800 Euros.
