Do you know what’s better than a 488 GTB? A modified Ferrari 458 Italia, obviously!
With the introduction of the Ferrari 488 GTB earlier this year, most petrol heads have forgotten about the 458, but this is still one hot exotic ride. The images posted below are showing a Litchfield Imports modified version, which has received an Akrapovic exhaust system with a titanium construction, a set of high flow sports catalytic converters helping it spit flames, a carbon fiber airbox and an ECU upgrade, which is adding an extra 44 HP (32 kW) and 23 Nm (17 lb-ft) of torque. The pricing of this upgrade package has been set at 11,995 GBP.
As a small reminder, Ferrari has been putting together the 458 between 2009 and 2015. The supercar was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, back in 2009, and it came as a replacement for the F430. The exotic vehicle was offered in two body styles, a two-door coupe and a two-door roadster, both of them getting the same rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The total length of it stood at 4,527 mm, the width was 1,937 mm and the height 1,213 mm. A 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, was sending 562 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration took just over 3 seconds and top speed was 325 km/h (202 mph).
