The rust wrap might be the next big thing with supercars because this isn’t something you get to see on a daily basis.
We might end up missing those kitschy gold-wrapped exotic models owned by wealthy Arabs because chances are they will go for a new look, a rusty one, similar to the vehicle pictured below. The supercar is a Ferrari 458 Spider which is now getting the rust wrap covering its body, signed by Prowrap Professional Carwrapping in the Netherlands. Talking about the finished product is not that easy because we actually like it, but not on a supercar with so much history behind it and fans which tend to keep things simple.
Under its hood we are finding the same 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, which is still capable of putting down a total of 562 HP (419 kW) at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,000 rpm. The supercar can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3 seconds and top speed stands at 340 km/h (210 mph). In the drop-top, the Ferrari 458 Spider, the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes exactly the same but top speed has went down to 320 km/h (199 mph). The roadster has debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, two years after the coupe was shown, and it has an aluminum retractable hardtop which is 25 kg lighter than the soft roof found on the F430 Spider, its predecessor.
