2012 Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder Monaco by Mansory

The Top Marques Monaco is without question one of the most important dates on the tuning calendar, particularly because of the location it’s held at every year. Nothing speaks more to millionaires throwing their money around than Monte Carlo, and some of the best tuners use that platform to show off their latest programs.

Now that the 2012 Top Marques Monaco has come and gone, we can definitely say that the tuners in attendance gave us programs that were for the books. One in particular was Mansory , which only recently wowed us at Geneva with not one , not two , not three , but four programs for some of the finest exotics in the land.

For their Monaco offering, the Swiss tuner brought their very first program for the Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder , appropriately called "Monaco."

As you can expect, Mansory did some serious bodywork upgrades on the 458 Italia Spyder, complete with a body kit that’s made out of carbon fiber. The kit includes a restyled front apron with air inlets for the front coolers, a new bonnet, side skirts with integrated ducts, a rear skirt with an integrated diffuser, carbon blades that replace the rear window, and a rear wing. All told, the carbon fiber components shaved of 60 kg (132 lbs) from the supercar’s overall weight.

Under the hood of the Italian stallion, Mansory reprogrammed the ECU, the sports air filter, and the sport exhaust, translating to an increased output of 590 horsepower and 413 lb/ft of torque with a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph.

UPDATE 07/10/2012: Youtube user, Marchettino, was able to film the Mansory 458 Italia Monaco at an undisclosed auto show in France, providing a more in-depth look at the modified supercar. Check it out after the jump!

To those who don’t care much about style, this has gone better.

It has super nice headlights and grilles. I love the 458 Italia more than ever. 

I don’t like the designer of the Ferrari. The protected image of the Spyder makes it a bit awkward.

I’m not impressed that much on the works of Masonry. I think there’s still missing and only its maximum speed can be boasted to my friends.

Impressively, Mansory’s job is quite exquisitely done this time. I had no doubts about the performance upgrade too.

Aren’t we all glad that Mansory has not thoroughly butchered its appearance? Otherwise, it would be unacceptable albeit their effective powerful tuning.

I’m glad that its style isn’t thoroughly ruined by Mansory. The paint job is actually impressive.

It’s beyond the company’s control. However, it doesn’t mean that Mansory should flaunt this. I suggest them to hire a designer, actually.

The main concern is its design. I’m quite skeptical about Mansory’s styling abilities.

It’s not bad as I expected it to be. Some cars actually sport this paint job too.

I’m not impressed on what they have done to this Ferrari; it would be much better if they kept their hands off it.

Why do automotive companies even let Mansory tune their models? The story continues; Masonry messed up another car, and this time it is a Ferrari.

I am kind of worried, since it is Mansory we are talking about. Regardless of its mechanical outcome, the exterior will probably look cheaper.
