Lighter than the standard version, the Scuderia is rumored to show up in Germany with 600 HP coming out of its 4.5-liter V8 engine thanks to a remapped ECU, updated exhaust, new forged connection rods, and a 9,300 rpm redline.

Besides the extra 38 horses, the Scuderia could also gain a tweaked seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with new gear ratios. According to Car&Driver, the new Maranello-built sportscar will come with active carbon fiber winglets on its rear diffuser and more capable Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes.

The 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show is set to debut on September 10, but be sure to stick around for further info on the new Ferrari 458 Scuderia.
