Preview: Ferrari 458 Italia by Hamann

Hamann now offers two types of light alloy rims for the Ferrari 458 Italia. However, the German tuning firm didn't say why it isn't releasing a complete upgrade package as expected. Hamann announced that the first set is a split rim forged one and that the second is an ultra light forged version. Both have a 21-inch size and feature a Cross spoke design.

The bodies of the rims are painted a black Spider color while the flanges have a polished finish that is similar to the titanium screws.

Anodized black flanges can also be ordered though. Powering the Ferrari 458 Italia is a 4.5-liter V8 engine that delivers 570 HP at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.

The powerplant has a seven-speed dual clutch transmission that makes the car go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. The hypercar has speeds of up to 200mph (325 km/h) and it emits 320 grams of CO2 for each kilometer and returns a fuel consumption figure of 17 mpg (13.7 liters/ 100 km).
