2010 Ferrari 458 Italia by Oakley Design

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Known for its customization programme for the Porsche 997 GT2, Oakley Design revealed today its tuning kit for the latest Ferrari 458 Italia.

Because the car is quite perfect the tuning company decided to install a carbon-fiber front spoiler which adds 45kg of downforce over the front axle at 150mph (240km/h) but also a racecar style centrally positioned radiator vent designed to channel air out over the bonnet instead of under the car.

And this is not all, as the tuning company installed new air exit ducts beside the headlamps. At the rear we find a new rear spoiler with Gurney flap what adds 25kg of downforce over the rear axle at 150mph.

Other modifications brought to the design of the car are the new carbon-fibre roof panel, mirror covers and engine cover insert below the rear window glass.

In the engine bay we find -fibre panels covering the inner wings and rear bulkhead. In order to optimize the sound of the engine, the car features a complete titanium exhaust system with triple outlet pipes and no bypass valve shaves a huge 30kg from the Italia. aft section.

The design is completed by the 20-inch Oakley Design lightweight composite wheels which save a significant 8.0kg of unsprung weight per corner. For those who don't know the standard 458 Italia comes with 570bhp and 540 Nm of torque but with some ECU tweaking the car delivers now 627bhp and 567 Nm of torque.

With these numbers, the car ca sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds (standard version can sprin in 3.4 seconds) and has a top speed of over 330 km/h. We have bad news though: the production of this customization programme will be limited to just 5 cars, each bearing a unique build number plaque.
