Thanks to the well-connected folks at TeamSpeed, we have these first photos of the Ferrari 458 Italia Challenge car, that will replace the current F430 Challenge cars in the Italian automaker’s gentleman racing series.
The photos are reportedly from the first showing of the car, with official specs and photos set to be released by Ferrari soon.
Unfortunately, recent reports have suggested Ferrari may not build a Challenge Stradale or Scuderia version of the 458 Italia with Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo recently commenting that the 458 is already so advanced that a more hard-core version would be pointless. Still, in about three years time, we have a feeling Ferrari will be able to top the 458.
