The Ferrari F458 Challenge is a specifically track-oriented car designed to provide racers with the opportunity to test and improve their racing skills. The model is based on the standard F458, which was introduced in 2009, but underwent significant modifications to adapt it for racing.
The same 4.5-liter V8 engine found in the standard F458 provides the power, but the engine’s output has been increased to 570 horsepower. The car’s design has also been modified to better suit track use, including a wider body, sport suspension, and larger brakes. The transmission is the standard 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, but modifications have made the car’s shift times more efficient. The car was developed and introduced by Ferrari’s own designers and engineers in 2010.
Interestingly, the F458 Challenge itself is a historically significant car, as it was the last model produced by Ferrari before they transitioned to the 488 GTB. The model was successful in races, including the Ferrari Challenge series and other categories, and has maintained its popularity among Ferrari fans since.
