2011 Ferrari 458 "Italian Stallion" by Wheelsandmore

It seems as though Wheelsandmore is never short of ideas when it comes to tuning projects, as evidenced by these fancy programs we’ve been getting lately. On the same day they introduced separate tune-ups for the Ferrari California and the Lamborghini Murcielago , the German tuning shop also dished out one for the Ferrari 458 Italia . It’s called the ’Italian Stallion’, and appropriately so because Wheelsandmore’s program offers all that - and more. No pun intended, by the way.

For starters, the tuning firm gave the Ferrari supercar a two-tone design with black racing stripes running down the middle to go with a huge rear wing on the back of the car. Then there’s also something that’s right up their wheelhouse: a new set of fancy rims. For this program, Wheelsandmore chose to give the 458 Italia a set of its own 21" "6 SporzĀ²" forged rims to go with 245/30/21 and 345/25/21 Hankook tires in the front and back of the car, respectively. The car also has a lift-up system at the front axle, providing a substantial hydraulic lift of about 40 mm to ensure that the car can clear any and all speed bumps that may come its way.

While all of that is fine and dandy, the real star of this program is the 458 Italia’s 4.5-liter V8 engine, which was given an ECU upgrade and a new valve-controlled exhaust system with remotable flaps and stainless steel manifolds. All those tweaks result in the car’s output jumping from 570 horsepower to a mouth-watering 621 horsepower and 616 lb/ft of torque with an estimated top speed of 205 mph.

There’s a lot to love about this "Italian Stallion" program, something that we’re saying a lot more often when it comes to packages from Wheelsandmore.

It will be more impressive if they use a better engine than with V8 engine only. Anyway, it still quite satisfying on that, and I must say that its exterior detailing is really so stunning and awesome on its design.

V8 engine is really quite impressive, but I think it seems more fun to drive with, if they use a powerful engine, like V10 or V12 engine the fact that it is a sports car. Moreover, I love angst and the lovely appearance of this.

There are really now a lot of versions of Ferrari Italia 458, now they pull this Ferrari 458 Italian Stallion. Wheelsandmore is really a great tuning company, very creative in every aspect of tuning.

I don’t know a lot about Wheels and more but as I saw this car, which is quite impressive and fascinating. The total power output with 620+ hp and uses V8 engine. That was really good.

Wow! I never thought that my favorite 458 Italia would look like this. Wheelsandmore did a very impressive work here. I love the "Italian Stallion" spirit they give on this one.

Agreed. It really looks like the California except for the flattened bonnet. I was impressed with the aerodynamic kit offered on this aftermarket version. The white and black theme with the racing stripes really shows the sportiness and aggressiveness of this vehicle. And its speed performance is just enough to make everyone drool just by looking at it.

I guess it was the same package used for the modification of the Ferrari California. The name, ’Italian Stallion’ sounds so virile and very appropriate from being aggressive on style. The black stripes on its bonnet makes it sportier. And I was impressed with the boost power output on this vehicle though they haven’t removed its speed limit.
