A new Ferrari 458 Italia from Oakley Design

The European tuner Oakley Design offers a tuning package for the Ferrari 458 Italia, upgrading both the car's design and its performance. Production will be limited to just 5 cars, each bearing a unique build number plaque.

Outside of this Limited Edition mode, individual parts will also be made available for clients who do not require the complete package.

The new package offers a new rear spoiler with Gurney flap which adds 25 kg of downforce over the rear axle at 150mph. It also includes a carbon-fiber front spoiler lip, which adds 45kg of downforce over the front axle at 150mph, carbon-fiber inserts on the radiator air exit ducts, wider side sills and also a lighter carbon-fiber rear diffuser. Other features are a carbon fibre roof panel, mirror covers and engine cover insert below the rear window glass. These are matched in the engine bay by carbon-fibre panels covering the inner wings and rear bulkhead.

Now, thanks to the European tuner Oakley Design, the Ferrari 458 Italia sits on 20-inch wheels with 245/35ZR20 and 305/35ZR20 tires.

Oakley Design also worked on car's engine, increasing its power to 627bhp and a peak torque of 567Nm, more with 10%. Now, the Ferrari 458 Italia can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, while it reaches a top speed of 205 mph.
