Sometimes, filming the perfect sequence is worth taking a risk, even if it requires getting dangerously close to a modified 458 Italia doing donuts.
Taking part to the goldRush Rally takes more than a hot car and a pocket full of cash, although, in reality, it’s the madness that makes this event one-of a-kind; and this this particular occurring proves it.
Belonging to Damon Fryer at DDE drives, this Ferrari 458 features the shocking Liberty Walk over-fenders kit that separated supercar fans into two camps, and genuine Ferrari GT3 parts, including the dry-carbon mirrors and the 458 Challenge Evo wing. In combination with the zebra razzle-dazzle vinyl, and the yellow-tinted headlights the car is a head turner, especially when its showing off.
Its engine might not be chugging more horsepower than the stock 570 PS (562 hp) at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb·ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm, but that’s enough grunt for getting into trouble.
According to the video description, the guy filming the car didn’t zoom in (yes, he was that close to the beast), saying he was inches away from the rear-end of the car. As awesome as the footage is, we would advise you not to try this at home; not even with a lawn mower, let alone with a 458 Italia.
