If you thought Ferrari 458 Challenge was awesome, check this baby out! This is the GT2 racing version of the car which qualifies for all types of endurance and GT series including different editions of Le Mans Series. This is a spy picture of the car testing at Fiorano track, and even though it’s not finished yet and has no livery on, it looks fantastic.
The GT racer version of the Ferrari 458 Italia will be available in GT2 and GT3 formats, so it can have from 470 to 600 horsepower. It also gets a Hewland six-speed sequential transmission instead of the standard car’s seven-speed dual-clutch. One other difference over the 45 Challenge will be the wheel size, as GT2 sports 18″ rather than 19″. It is also slightly heavier than the Challenge, but then it has beter aerodynamics.
According to the source, Ferrari 458 Challenge costs € 245,000, the GT3 version will have a price tag of € 340,000, and the GT2, all of a sudden, € 480,000 all excluding VAT!
