A serious racing machineThe 458 Challenge was the fifth generation of Ferrari’s Challenge racers.
Each generation evolved further from a street car to a serious racing machine. The 458 Challenge made that point clear.
The 458 Challenge started out as a standard 458 unibody, and from there it gets its own identity. The Challenge body panels are thinner alloy. The windows are Lexan, and carbon fiber is used wherever possible in an effort to shed weight. The brakes are carbon-ceramic for light weight and superior stopping. Rubber suspension mounts are replaced with racing uniballs and alloy shock absorbers replace the stock units.
The car features a stock 570-hp 4.5-liter 458 engine. The engine revs to 9,000 rpm. The Challenge driveline is mapped to produce more torque at lower rpms than the street version, which makes it more manageable in racing applications.
Electronic wizardry in the way of a F1 transmission, traction control, ABS brakes and an adaptive differential complete the package. The 458 Challenge was the most potent V8 Ferrari made up to its time.
This car has only been driven in one race and has around 500km on it with brand new Pirelli Racing Slicks and a set of rain tires as well worth 10k each.
