This exceptional piece of machinery is only limited to 5 exotic greatness.

The exotic car also received carbon fiber trims on its mirror cover, roof and engine cover. The exhaust installed is a three-piece titanium pipe which they removed the bypass valve to shed off weight. Finishing off the Ferrari italia 458 is a sleek 20” OZ Style Racing wheels with Trofeo tires from Pirelli.
Their grand master piece was also given a new air intake box and a remapped ECU increasing the madness out of its engine to 627 bhp with 418 lb ft of torque. These can blast from 0-62 mph in just 3.0 sec which is 0.04 sec lesser than the base Italia 458.
