We’ll have to be completely honest with you, we are not too fond of the concept of upgrading Ferrari models in any way. They are masterpieces right from the factory, and by trying to change that, you run the risk of completely ruin that Ferrari look.
In the case of this Ferrari upgrade by Capristo, however, we feel the tuner did a pretty good job at revising the 458 Spider without changing a lot of the car’s elements. From the looks of things, all of the changes it made fit in well with the character of the 458, while making it look a little bit more aggressive.
Capristo wanted to give the 458 a look to match its 562-horsepower, V-8 engine, so it replaced the original engine cover, which doesn’t give you a good look at the mighty engine, and replaced it with one that features glass viewing pane and extra vents to more effectively draw the heat away from the engine compartment.
