Let’s face it, as short as it may be, the Ferrari 458 Italia’s history has not exactly been sunshine and roses. And while Ferrari is busy trying to solve its fire problems, the tuners are going with the fiery theme and trying to increase the engine’s output by as much as possible.

Akrapovic, for instance, is offering a new exhaust system that not only makes the 458 Italia sound incredible, but it also increases the engine’s power from 570 HP to 581 HP at 6,370 rpm and the peak torque from 540 Nm to 566 NM at 2,400 rpm. To make the Italia even more spritey, the tuners have also dropped the car’s total weight by 14 kilos (from 1380 kilos to 1366 kilos). We can’t imagine that these changes have not catapulted the sports car’s performance, but the tuner is staying mum in regards to the sprint times or the car’s top speed.

Okay, enough with all that. Turn up your volume, hit the jump, and get ready to listen to the most amazing sound ever. Enjoy! .

I bet the Akrapovic will turn the Italia like a beast in the road.
