Call us old-fashioned, but we’d like our Ferrari 458 in a factory paint. If not red, which is all too obvious, then maybe yellow, black, silver or perhaps something more exotic from their extensive palette.
Not everyone thinks alike, though – and that’s not a bad thing per se. After all, each is entitled to to what they want with their ride, as long as its legal, right?
Thus, even though a camo wrapped 458 is not exactly our cup of tea, we can understand its appeal. The military-inspired pattern has been complemented by the yellow accents on the apron, side skirts and brake calipers, Italian flag motif on the side mirrors and a very large rear wing that makes it look like a racer.
Completing the look of the 458 Italia are the USF-03 black rims by Ferrada, sized 9×21 inches up front and 12×21 at the rear. The wheelmaker is oferring this set in 19-, 20-, 21-, 22- and 24-inch in size and in a wide range of colors, starting at $1,800, tax included, and with no special finish applied.
To demonstrate that the Italian supercar is still capable of getting your blood pumping, Ferrada set it loose in Las Vegas, filming the short bursts of acceleration and occasional donuts made near Fremont Street. With the editing complete and soundtrack revised, they released yet another exciting video, with what is probably the best mid-engine, rear-wheel drive Prancing Horses made before the turbocharged era that began with its successor, the 488, and continued with the F8 Tributo.
