Ferrari 458 Spider Elegante by DMC

Tuning

German tuner claims to have massively improved the drop-top 458. We’ll let you be the judge of that.

Lamborghini is the Dusseldorf-based tuning house’s preferred automotive canvas, but after doing its thing with the Ferrari F12, DMC Germany has picked up a taste for the Prancing Horse. It’s latest project, dubbed the “Elegante,” is based on a Ferrari 458 Spider and comes with a Performance Package that pushes output from the 4.5-liter V8 to 608 hp and 419 lb-ft of torque thanks to a ECU remap and stainless steel exhaust system. To cope with the added power DMC fitted a sports suspension and three-piece forged alloys staggered 21/22 inches front/rear, finished in Virgin Gold.

The tuners body kit is apparently a “massive improvement” on the stock 458 look. Aggressive and aerodynamic, it includes a new lip splitter, vented hood, extended side skirts, rear spoiler, and some carbon-fiber trim. A bespoke interior finished in leather and carbon fiber with a redesigned steering wheel also forms part of the package.
