The gentleman’s racecar is apparently too gentle for some.
The Ferrari 458 Challenge has been engineered to be driven hard and fast. Power comes from the stock Italia’s 570-hp 4.5-liter V8, while the 458 Challenge boasts a race-spec suspension, Brembo brakes, plenty of carbon fiber and Lexan, Ferrari’s F1-Trac traction system and recalibrated dual-clutch transmission. If that’s not enough, German motorsport tuner Racing One is happy to oblige. Not only will it up output to 612 hp, it offers to upgrade the braking system, the suspension and apply an aerodynamics package that includes a front lip spoiler and canards.
