Ferrari 458 Challenge Blast
Ferrari has an illustrious name in the world of motorsport and our new 458 Challenge follows suit. Built to contest in Ferrari’s single-series racing championship – Ferrari Challenge.
The Challenge car feels a world apart from its road going cousin, surrounded by a spider web roll-cage, 19″ forged rims, center-locks, slick tyres and uprated race suspension its lower, harder and lighter – a significant weight saving can be found using lightweight materials such as poly-carbonate windows and carbon fibre throughout. The car utilises technologies found in Ferrari’s F1 team and extra gains for track times can be attributed to its aerodynamics and monstrous Brembo CCM2 brakes as found on the 599XX. It’s hard to miss the distinctive goose neck wing towering behind, forcing the car firmly into the tarmac, Ferrari claims the 458 Challenge can generate lateral forces of up to 1.6g. Equipped with a direct-injection, 4.5-litre V8 power plant producing 562bhp at 9000rpm, this car is capable of over 200mph+ and laps the firm’s Fiorano test circuit in 1min 16.5sec – around two seconds faster than the F430 Challenge car.
