The SEMA Auto Show attracts tuning companies far and wide, stretching even across the pond to Germany, considered as the home of some of the most popular aftermarket companies in the world.
One tuning company that belongs on that list is DMC, which will travel all the way to Las Vegas to present their latest program for the Ferrari 458 Italia , called the ’458 Milano’, which they built in collaboration with Al & Ed’s of Hollywood.
According to DMC, the program for the 458 Milano includes an extensive carbon fiber body kit, including new side skirts, rear diffuser, sections of the front bumper, and wing mirrors. Speaking about the carbon fiber body kit, DMC made it known that the carbon bits on their program are miles better than anything that’s on the market these days. The kit also includes 21″ alloy wheels on the front and 22″ on the rear axle, fitted with 255/30 and 335/25 performance tires respectively.
As for the power upgrade, DMC has tweaked the Ferrari’s 4.5 L V8 engine’s electronics and matched it with a new valved stainless steel exhaust to take the standard 570 HP up to 602 HP. This exhaust system is actually 19kg/43 lbs lighter than the standard exhaust, which helps in bringing up the vehicle’s top speed to 205 mph. As an option, DMC also has a control to manually keep the exhaust valves open, only in markets where it is allowed.
