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 made in collaboration with Luxury Custom and is based on the Ferrari 458 Italia.

The two names, DMC and Luxury Custom decided to cover the Ferrari 458 Italia in black paint. The joint tuning package is called “Elegante” and offers the supercar a more aggressive look. The tuning pack includes a totally different front spoiler lip, larger side skirts and a modified rear bumper with an updated diffuser.

The Ferrari 458 Italia “Elegante” is covered in black and this is no wonder since black is the colour that mostly represents elegance. The windows and taillights are also painted in black. To create something different, the tuners have applied some yellow paint on the alloy wheels and brake calipers. No power boost is mentioned, so the vehicle is most likely to present the same stock configuration, a V8 4.5-liter engine developing 570 HP (419 kW) at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) at 6,000 rpm. The powering unit is linked to a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox and will sprint the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than 3.4 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of more than 202 mph (325 km/h).
