The tuner is based off Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom and has decided to try its hands on the Italian Ferrari 458 Italia – a benchmark in its supercar segment.

While the model has already received a successor, the 458 Italia is still utterly relevant in the field of supercars and the tuner has a major upgrade program for interested owners. After several months of work, as well as miles of testing, the package has a reworked ECU and Akrapovic titanium exhaust system that saves 14.2 kg (31.3 lbs) compared to the standard factory design while delivering a “purposeful, sonorous howl.” Thanks to the modifications, which were actually designed to have 458 owners reach the true rates of the model on static “dyno-test” settings, the 4.5-liter V8 engine comes up with another 44 bhp (32 kW) and 17 lb-ft (23 Nm) of torque. The Litchfield dyno now shows a real power of 551 bhp and the tuner also recommends installing brake hoses from Goodridge motorsport, with the aerospace quality stainless steel braided hoses offering a “more positive and precise brake pedal.”

As a finishing touch, the owner can receive a precision alignment. The engineers can perform Litchfield’s own special ‘fast road’ setting that delivers a better chassis through carefully having each tire’s perfect contact patch with the road. The cost for the entire package from the English tuner is of 11,995 British pounds, without VAT.
