Ferrari 458 M Spied Testing with Twin-Turbo Engine

Get ready for a twin-turbo Ferrari 458.

The Ferrari 458 M has been spied testing and is likely sporting a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with around 670 hp, making it over 100-hp stronger than the naturally-aspirated 458 model. While it’s hard to see, it appears that the camouflage is hiding new air intakes on the side of the Italian exotic along with some aerodynamic tweaks to ensure plenty of air makes its way to the turbocharged engine.

Perhaps the biggest giveaway that this isn’t your standard 458 is the rear exhaust setup. Gone is the tri-tip center-exit found in the standard 458 and in its place is a standard dual exhaust setup similar to what’s found on the 458 Speciale. Given that Ferrari is already testing its twin-turbo 458, it will likely make its debut at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.
