First clues as to how a hardcore Scuderia 458 Italia model could look
28 May 2010

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.

Now this is more like it!, this looks like a Ferrari, by which i mean if you took all the badges of and painted it white you'd still say it was a Ferrari, i'd go further and say it's one of the best looking car's that they've built in the last decade.

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

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.
