2013 Ferrari 458 Italia Elegante by DMC

Another week, another program for DMC.

This time, DMC has dressed up a Ferrari 458 Italia with not only a custom stealthy black finish, but a custom body kit that’s befitting of its name: Elegante.

This isn’t the first time DMC has used the Elegante kit on the 458, but it is the first time the coupe got the treatment — last time it was the 458 Spider that received the kit.

The Elegante body kit is as comprehensive as its name leads you to believe. It’s got all the usual digs we’ve come to expect from DMC, including a new front spoiler lip, larger side skirts and a new rear bumper with a modified diffuser setup.

The engine also gets some minor performance upgrades that pump it up to a stout 608 horsepower, thanks in large part to a remapped ECU and a new stainless-steel exhaust system. That’s a pretty healthy upgrade from its stock 562 horsepower from its base 4.5-liter V-8.

Far be it for us to judge the number supercars DMC modifies, we still go back to our belief of quantity is only as good as the quality. So far, DMC is proving that saying true with one quality program after another.

DMC, you’re skills in tuning supercars have no bounds.

Ferrari 458 Italia

Ferrari unveiled the 458 Italia at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show as the replacement for the F430. The model introduced a design language never seen before on a Ferrari model, plus it comes with tons of punch under its hood.

We are talking about a 4.5-liter, V-8 engine that delivers a total of 570 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 398 pound-feet at 6,000 rpm. This output is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.4 seconds, while top speed goes up to an impressive 201 mph.
