Hennessey Performance has launched an upgrade program for the Ferrari 458 Italia and Spider.
To get to this power figure the tuner installed twin ball bearing turbochargers and upgraded the fuel system. The car also received an air-to-water intercooler system and stainless steel inlet piping, along with dual wastegates and engine management calibration. Other tweaks include custom oil and transmission lines, stainless steel exhaust system and turbo downpipes.
After all these changes were applied, the V8 4.5-liter engine now churns 738 HP at 8,400 rpm and 532 lb-ft at 5,600 rpm. It enables the modified Ferrari 458 to perform the 0-60 mph run in 2.8 seconds and the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds at 137 mph. Additional upgrades are available, including a carbon fiber exterior body kit, a KW adjustable suspension, monoblock wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, along with leather and carbon interior upgrades.
The power kit costs $59,995 and comes with a one-year / 12,000-mile limited warranty.
