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!

They truly made a great transformation in making this version of Spyder. You will see how they managed to make a good car like this from a vintage one.

Did they copy the exterior look of the Lamborghini? I’m just kind of worried on this Ferrari. I think it’s messed up.

Masonry didn’t fail on giving the Italia a better performance and appearance also.

That video really shows how great the Italia is!

Has Masonry tuned it to the fullest? The video shows all its best angle with features, but why @SpeedyCars has a different kind of vision on this Italia Spyder.

You have to love it @aaron lexus. It’s a Ferrari Spyder.

I love red color and also the design of this car.

It features the latest apron with air inlets for enhanced ventilation in the front coolers.

I agree with you. This Italia gone through that changes that makes it totally different from its former state.

I didn’t recognize the Italia after the application of the Masonry. Air intakes are placed on its bumper, and new bonnets, side skirt. It turns out to be at its best so far.

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.
