Mansory likes to play with supercars and the Swiss tuner often does this in extreme ways that give birth to flashy creations. The latest example that comes to demonstrate this is the Siracusa Ferrari 458.

The Italian supercar has received multiple tech and aesthetic modifications and now manages to deliver enhanced performance while coming with an even more menacing appearance. However, we have to admit that the look of the vehicle is a bit of an exaggeration.

The tuning program makes extensive use of carbon fiber, with the material being used for certain elements of the front apron, which has been redesigned and uses more efficient air intakes, hood, new side skirts, which optimize air flow, a rear apron that houses a diffuser. The list of carbon fiber goodies also includes a set of blades that replace the rear window and a rear wing. All this play makes the vehicle 70 kg (154 lbs) lighter than the standard 458.

Moving to the tech mods, we’ll mention that the supercar's 4.5-liter V8 has been fitted with a custom exhaust system, a sports air filter and a new ECU map. The powerplant now allows the driver to play with 590 hp and 560 Nm of torque. This offers the vehicle a 0-62 mpg sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h).

The tuner has installed a set of lowering springs that bring the vehicle 20 mm closer to the road. The car rides on 20/21-inch (front/rear) rims that use Michelin PS2 tires (front: 245/35, rear: 305/30).

The interior has also been customized, being fitted with multiple custom elements, such as carbon fiber trimming and a special leather finish.
