These pictures of a Ferrari 458 Italia converted for race use have sparked speculation that there will be a one-make race series for the car from 2011 - and give the first clues as to how a hardcore Scuderia model could look.

As well as standard race preparation features such as a rollcage, plastic windows and race seats, the prototype car appears to be lower than standard, have a revised aerodynamic package and wider side skirts.

From a performance point of view this car is going to be the benchmark in its class. As for the style I am warming to it, but for me the nose is just not right a bit too messy.

Looks great, just like the regular 458 but lower and new wheels. Here's for 100kg weight-saving and 600bhp- fingers crossed.
