Valentino Rossi Races a Ferrari 458 GT3 at Monza [Video]
Yes, that Ferrari 458 Italia has been converted into a race car, and yes, that is Moto GP legend Valentino Rossi behind the wheel.
The 458 Italia GT3 has been kitted out with a very brash Monster Energy wrap and is uses the same color combo as the one used on a Ford Fiesta WRC during the 2011 Monza Rally Show last November, when Rossi was also behind the wheel.
Developed specifically for racing, the Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 is a very extreme iteration of the road-going car. The most important figure is the weight, as it’s been lowered by about 166 kg, but it’s also more planted, thanks to a 98 mm wider track.
