Another solution would be to gift your 458 with a V12. Wait, what? This is what supercar collector Greg B seems to have done, at least according to his Instagram posts - from enjoying the charms of the Ferrari Corse Clienti (customer racing) program, to a Pagani Zonda R, the man's social media account is a universe of internal combustion joy.
So far, we've only received teasers, but the aficionado confirms the 458 engine compartment seen in the image above is occupied by a twelve-cylinder unit - the quick-release engine lid bits are on the house.
Judging by what we can see in this image, the Franken-Horse should hit the road soon and we can't wait to meet this mechanical synesthesia.
This hybrid follows two other projects that have infuriated purists last year, with both coming from the drifting side of the automotive realm. Interestingly, we got to see both V8- and V12-animated Maranello drift cars back in 2016.
We'll start with the twelve-unit beast, namely Japanese drifter Daigo Saito's 599 GTB sideways tool. While we have yet to see the contraption at work, the slip angle animal should make its debut this year.
As for Ryan Tuerck's Ferrari-engined Toyota GT86, the U.S. pro drifter has welcomed a... 458's heart. Ironic, isn't it? Given the underpowered nature of the Toyobaru's 2.0-liter boxer, the Maranello supercar's V8 was nothing short of a blessing, one we've already shown you doing its tire-slashing thing.
