Remember a while ago when the guys from Oakley Design brought forth a tuning kit for the Ferrari 458 Italia? We thought nothing would make the Ferrari any better than it already was (that was, of course, before they started randomly spitting fire). Turns out, Oakley Design did create a better 458 Italia and the lucky guys from Performance Direct Motoring News had the chance to test drive one of the five souped up units! Not only did they get a chance to ride around in the exquisite sports car, but they also had the opportunity to pin it up against a Ducati 1198 ’Carbon Edition’. Some guys have all the luck!

As a reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia offers a carbon-fiber front spoiler lip, carbon-fiber inserts on the radiator air exit ducts, wider side sills, a lighter carbon-fiber rear diffuser, a new rear spoiler and carbon-fiber roof panel, mirror covers, and an engine cover insert. The engine’s output was increased by 10%, obtaining a total of 627bhp and a peak torque of 567Nm. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in 3.0 seconds, while top speed is 205 mph.

We could only come up with one conclusion after watching this video; OMG! That car can fly!
