Prior Design-Tuned Ferrari 458 Sounds Just The Way It Looks

If you’re going to dress up your Ferrari 458 Italia, using Prior Design’s PD458 aero kit is definitely one of your better options.

The kit consists of a new front bumper, spoiler lip, rear bumper, side skirts, diffuser, a custom bonnet, plus the vent inserts and rear trunk spoiler, which is painted red on this particular 458.

In regards to performance, Prior Design will slot an extra 30 PS and 40 Nm (29 lb-ft) of torque into your 458, although the main culprit for how brutal this car sounds is the stainless steel exhaust system.

Towards the end of the clip, you’ll hear some major bangs and crackles as the driver downshifts while approaching another vehicle, although we’d like to remind everybody than since the 458 is a naturally aspirated car, it doesn’t really need any engine or exhaust mods in order to wake the dead with its high-pitched scream.

However, while this might just be one of the loudest 458 Italia models we’ve ever heard, it still has ways to go before reaching FXX-K or 599XX levels of insanely loud. Here’s the proof.

  • I’D IMAGINE FERRARI KNOWS A LOT MORE ABOUT IT’S ENGINES THAN ANY AFTERMARKET TUNER.

    I don’t love all of the changes (hood fitment is terrible), but the nose is a big improvement over stock, and the exhaust sounds absolutely wicked at anything above idle (which is typical Ferrari-gravely). Two thumbs up to Prior Design.

    • Zandit75

      Agreed, the hood really sits up on the LHS of the car! Looks fine on the other side.

    Tacky?

    I’d love me a stock 458.

  • Infinite1

    Front end is definitely improved from factory. Looks like a La Ferrari in the front now.
