This is the new 458 Challenge, the racing version of the incredible Ferrari 458 Italia. Obviously the car went through a diet to shed some weight, the V8 hasn’t been touched and still pumps out 563bhp, but the gear ratios and calibration of the dual-clutch F1 ‘box have been modified to give higher torque at lower revs. It also gets Ferrari’s E-Diff and ‘F1-Trac’ – the traction control system which constantly monitors grip levels to allow racers to lay down maximum track carnage. The Challenge also comes with stiffer springs, single-rate alloy dampers, forged 19in rims, a 50mm lower ride height, Brembo brakes (as on the 599XX) and Pirelli slicks.
