Ferrari 458 Challenge by Racing One

Ferrari is by definition a spectacular brand that creates amazing vehicles. In the past years, the Ferrari 458 sports car has been set under the magnifier of many tuning companies. The latest projects based on it are coming from great tuners such as Vorsteiner or DMC. This wasn’t at all an obstacle for the tuning company known as Racing One which created the so called Challenge project, based on the Ferrari 458.

The Ferrari 458 Challenge is a true untamed beast when it comes to performance on road.  Racing One was very confident on the hidden extra force of the supercar so decided to take the chance in upgrading it.  The vehicle is powered by the same V8 4497cc engine but the standard 570 HP (419 kW) is now replace with some 620 HP (456 kW).

The upgrading package for the Ferrari 458 Challenge doesn’t refer just to a power increase.  Racing One has also submitted it to some suspension and chassis upgrades. The centre-nut 19 inch set of racing wheels is stopped by a tricky Brembo braking kit. A front lip spoiler and canards equip the vehicle which becomes this way more aerodynamic. Whether or not the tuning package seems attractive, the supercar still remains a supercar.
