Maranello Won't be Happy: Hennessey's Twin-Turbo Ferrari 458

Supercar

"Aventador owners beware – this car will take you by surprise." John Hennessey.

Texas-based aftermarket tuner Hennessey Performance is back with another borderline bonkers performance kit. Instead of tuning a Chevy Corvette, Camaro, or even a Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, Hennessey has now focused its attention to the always wonderful Ferrari 458 Italia and Spider. The 458 comes powered by a 4.5-liter V8 that’s good for 570 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque in stock form. But as always, Hennessey goes a few steps further.

Thanks to installing a set of turbochargers, upgraded fuel system, stainless steel exhaust system and piping, an engine management recalibration and a few other tweaks, output has been increased to 738 hp and 532 lb-ft. That’s just plain lunacy.

Performance wise, the newly modified 458 Spider blasts from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. It can do the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds at 137 mph. Some additional features include Hennessey’s CarbonAero exterior pieces that consist of a carbon-fiber front splitter and rear lip spoiler. The tuner also tossed in a set of 20-inch Monoblock forged wheels. The cost for an upgrade like this? $59,995, which includes installation and a 1-year/12k mile limited warranty. Of course, you’ll have to buy the car from Ferrari first.
