Ferrari 458 Italia by DMC

Ferrari is by definition a spectacular brand that creates amazing vehicles. In the past years, the Ferrari 458 Italia sports car has been set under the magnifier of many tuning companies. This wasn’t at all an obstacle for the tuning company DMC, which is not an unknown name in the tuning segment. In time, it has developed some great projects on amazing vehicles. The last one is the so called ESTREMO project, based on the Ferrari 458 Italia.

The regular Ferrari 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine borrowed from a shared Ferrari/Maserati design, producing 570 PS (419 kW; 562 hp) at 9,000 rpm (redline) and 540 N•m (398 lb•ft) at 6,000 rpm with 80% torque available at 3,250 rpm. The engine features direct fuel injection, which is a first for Ferrari mid-engine setups in its road cars. Well, DMC has not revealed anything about a power boost yet. However, as it got us used to upgrading the engines of the cars submitted to their attention, we might expect for the 458 Italia to receive some extra strength.

The Ferrari 458 Italia ESTREMO receives a pretty good looking body kit which gets it out of the ordinary. The kit includes a few carbon fiber parts, a new front splitter, an updated bonnet, side skirts a rear wing and a reinvented diffuser.  The tuner placed on the ESTREMO an updated front bumper with large openings which do nothing else but to offer a more aggressive look to the vehicle. The car sits on a new set of alloy wheels and it also received tinted headlights and updated front fenders. Summing up all the carbon fiber parts, adding what is left form other materials, we notice that the tuned vehicle loses 60 kg compared to the stock version. We’ll hear some news regarding the project soon.
