We never thought we'd use the word 'ugly' in the same phrase as the Ferrari 458 Italia. But here we are, faced with the pictured Italian supercar, which is definitely one of the most controversial copies of this model we've ever seen.
If anything, it looks like a replica from certain angles, especially up front, where the black decals on the hood and the bi-tone ones next to the headlights don't do justice to it. The ginormous Ferrari logo makes absolutely no sense on such an icon that's easily recognizable by any gearhead, and the lime green and red accents further down are kitschy.

It may not be noticeable at first with everything going on here, but this Ferrari 458 Italia also sports a body kit. It comprises the skirt extensions at the front, rear, and sides and a massive wing attached to the supercar's back end. It's close to impossible to name the tuner behind these add-ons, but if we were to guess, we'd say they have negatively affected the vehicle's aerodynamics and downforce.

The Italian flag motif was replicated on the left side mirror casing and the Ferrari logos on the front fenders are black. Due to the low resolution of the pictures shared on Instagram by worst.spec earlier this week, we cannot exactly tell whether the roof has a carbon wrap on it, and if it does, then it's another element that contributes to the blue-blooded exotic machine's kitschy flair.

You'd probably expect the wheels to have evaded the owner's tuning wrath, but they haven't. The aftermarket alloys have a Y-spoke design and a bi-tone look, mixing red and white, just like other exterior elements. The cockpit is partially visible through the front windshield, and we can see the red leather-wrapped dashboard and a tiny portion of the seats and steering wheel, which seem to sport a red and black look.

A more revealing picture of the supercar's face shows additional lime green accents in the front bumper, and this component appears to have come from the aftermarket world. It also has a tiny Prancing Horse statue in the middle, more red details on the side skirts and rear bumper attachment, and some green accents on the large rear wing.

On a more positive aspect, the modifications seem to be easily reversible, so the Ferrari 458 Italia's future owner will be able to turn it back to its OEM condition without too much hassle. After all, its current owner is bound to get bored of it. If you are aware of more images showing this brash Italian supercar, feel free to share the links in the comments area below, and depending on your findings, we may update the photo gallery.
