The Ferrari 458 Italia Challenge (let’s call the car this way) talks to the road via a set of new nine spoke ultra-light alloy rims, which have a single, central wheel nut and seem to be wrapped in slick tires.
The vehicle sits closer to the road than a factory stock 458 Italia and uses generously-sized carbon ceramic brake discs. The car comes with a revised front fascia, that adds an additional central air intake and uses a new grille.
The front of the car features racing equipment such as hood locks and a tow hook (located inside the front left air intake), all of them being signalized. Moving to the side, we see a set of aerodynamic profiled skirts which are wider than the stock ones, as well as plastic windows, with a specific racing opening system.
The rear of the upcoming racer, which also features a signalized tow hook, seems to be a work in progress area, as its lower area is lacking multiple finishing elements. The 458 Italia Challenge’s interior confirms the car’s motorsport intentions, as it features a set of racing seats and a rollcage.
We are looking forward to the official launch of the newest Italian racer.
