A Wide-Body Ferrari 458 Is Just What You Need To Stand Out In Monaco

The problem with driving a very wide and very low supercar on the narrow streets of Monaco should pale in comparison to how rewarding it must be to overshadow other, perhaps more expensive models, sharing the same road as your Liberty Walk 458.

In case anyone’s been keeping tabs, an alarmingly high percentage of Liberty Walk 458 stories we’ve seen have been wrecks – literally. Earlier this year, we even saw a badly damaged one abusing its rear tires, a car that had previously met its end in Monterey in 2016.

But in the end, all we can do is admire these types of builds, while laughing at the notion that they might be bad luck for their drivers.

In all seriousness, this gray metallic Liberty Walk Ferrari 458, snapped up by Jeroen VDB Photography and posted to Autogespot, attracted a huge crowd in Monaco recently, and it’s easy to understand why.

The fender extensions, massive rear wing and all the carbon fiber bits are really hard to miss. As for performance, even with no engine mods, the 570 PS 458 Italia should can get from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in as little as 3.4 seconds.

Now, if you’re more of a 488 fan, here’s what the Japanese tuner managed to do with that one this year.

    Looks a bit homemade!

      Yup, because they used the stock bumper instead of the actual Liberty Walk one.

  • Bash

    I dont like it.

  • Accelerated Depreciation

    An utter hack job in all aspects. The parts are crude; crude fitting; crass stickers; unbelievably bad rubber welting between panels.

    • gor134

      It’s not fitting well because the owner for some reason decided to use the stock bumper.

  • Blade t

    Has to be one of the worst places to drive around a car like that….

  • Vassilis

    Hate it when idiots ruin great cars.

  • DR.FUNK

    Only some tacky rich kid…

  • YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY KNOW MORE ABOUT DESIGN THAN FERRARI…OR ANY COMPANY AS THE CASE MAY BE.
    WHAT’S REALLY INTERESTING IS THAT FERRARI IS PICKY WHO CAN BUY THEIR CARS YET THEY SELL TO PEOPLE WHO DO THIS.

    • KenjiK

      They are only picky with their limited editions. And IMO, looking at their latest designs (GT4 Lusso, 812, Portofino) , they don’t know much about design anymore either.

      • McRiding

        Agreed!

  • Suicide_Note

    Absolutely disgusting. Such a shame to ruin a great looking car.

    If a Ferrari 488 isn’t special enough where you live such that you need to tack on a nasty lil body kit, then you, my friend, live in the land of douschebags with far too much money that you should be paying back in taxes. Every time I hear about Monaco and the vulgar displays of wealth there, each trying to outdo the other endlessly, I’m disgusted.
