You know MEC Design as a tuner of Mercedes-Benz cars with a very good taste in styling. Now for the first time ever they decided to work on a car that isn’t a Benz, and they went straight for one of the hottest and most desirable super cars out there, the Ferrari 458 Spider. The project is codenamed “Scossa Rossa.”
This being MEC’s first attempt at tuning a Ferrari, you would think they start with a set of wheels and maybe a couple of stickers. But you’d be wrong. Such was their confidence that they came up with a full ad thorough tuning package for the 458 including exterior, interior, chassis and performance upgrades.
On the outside MEC Design Ferrari 458 Spider features a subtle carbon fiber body kit consisting of 3 piece front lip spoiler, spoiler corners for front opening, side skirts and side skirt extension, 3 piece rear diffuser and under body protection. It is complemented with matt black accenting and blacked-out tailpipes.
Then we have the wheels, a set of meCCon series rims finished in black, in size 9,5Jx21 front and 12,5Jx21 rear, shod with 245 and 345 tyres respectively. Above them you find MEC’s sport suspension kit that drops the car by as much 60mm.
As for the interior, MEC Design proposes a carbon styling kit with 6 piece dashboard, 3 piece middle console, and 4 piece door set, plus carbon-leather steering wheel and special two-tone Ferrari scuff plate/ entry guard, floor mats, and LED light set.
The only performance upgrade currently offered for the MEC Design Ferrari 458 Spider is a sport exhaust system sound version Apocalypse. We don’t know about its effect on the engine’s output, but with a name like that you can be sure it will have a profound effect on its soundtrack.
