Ferrari 458 GT2, or GTC if you like, is the GT version of the 458 Italia road car which will replace the current 430 GT models in various endurance series this season. It is certainly very advanced technically, but we are more interested in the way it looks! This is by far and away the coolest race car of 2011 season, even cooler better than the SLS GT3.
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.
Here’s a few more pictures of this amazing car which is yet to make its public debut, enjoy.
