When DMC first sent us a rendering of this ESTREMO package they’ve come up with for the 458, we thought it was cool, but we weren’t exactly blown away by it. Now they have released the pictures of the real thing, and wow. This German-Italian-Japanese come together is a lot more successful than their first attempt back in the 40s.
You might be thinking now the car is Italian, DMC is a German tuner, why the hell are you talking about the Japanese? Well, this car was designed and built by DMC’s representatives in Japan based on a customer order.
DMC Ferrari 458 ESTREMO – it means Extreme, by the way – is limited to 15 units worldwide, of which 5 come with a special, secret, gold-plated body part. They are not telling us what it is yet, but don’t let your imagination get the best of you here!
As for the styling kit itself, the 458 ESTREMO gets completely new front and rear fascia with unique air intakes and aero parts, plus a fixed rear wing, which DMC claims work better than the stock parts. They produce more downforce and shed 50 to 80 kg from the weight of the car, which is an absolute result.
The tuner has also fitted the car with new air filters and a bespoke exhaust system that add 22 horsepower to the output, for a total 592 hp, lowers the 0 to 100 km/h time to 3.1 seconds, and increases the top speed to 332 km/h.
New 20-inch wheels, 30mm lowered suspension, and special Sting-Ray leather package for the interior are other parts of the ESTREMO kit.
