The Novitec Rosso-tuned Ferrari 458 Italia was first introduced to us last March at the Geneva Motor Show. Fast forward to today and the German automaker has released a couple of new iterations from the 458 Italia we saw last March, calling it the "Twins." No, we’re not talking about Skids and Mudflap from Transformers 2; we’re talking about two blazing hot Ferrari 458 Italias that were re-tuned by the world famous Ferrari tuner from Stetten, Germany.

The pair of supercars pretty much look alike, hence the name "Twins". Both carry the same red and black finish with plenty of carbon fiber details and a number of new items including a new front spoiler, flaps on both sides of the central air inlet, fender-mounted carbon fiber ventilation louvers, and carbon fiber mirror housings. About the only thing that distinguishes one from the other are the three-piece Novitec Rosso NF3 wheels with one model receiving a gloss black finish while its counterpart receives a scarlet red finish.

As for the powertrain, the 458 "Twins" received the same engine upgrade we saw in Geneva in the form of a carbon-fiber airbox, a high-performance exhaust system, and an ECU remap. All these changes took the output of the 458 Italia’s 4.5-liter V8 engine from 570 horsepower all the way up to 609 horsepower at 9,100 rpm and a peak torque from 398 lb-ft all the way up 420 lb-ft.

Novitec Rosso has even released a preview video of the 458 "Twins", which we highly advise you watch, just so you can start drooling over this pair of Italian exotics that were given the best possible German upgrades.

It still looks like the old 458 Italia, and I really wonder if what changes that Novitec Rosso did on this vehicle. Moreover, even though its engine is already satisfying, I think they should as yet boost it more.

Outdated engine? What did you mean by that? Anyway, I must say that for me, its barrel specification is not really a disappointing that’s why I’m still impressed on it, and I find it so fun to drive with on that.

I agree that the car has an impressive speed performance. However, its kind of disappointing that they have use an outdated engine.

yeah, the car has an impressive speed performance. I would say that they have an awesome styling as well.

With the carbon fiber richness that was used in the car I bet it’s lighter. And I guess that’s the reason why it has an impressive speed performance. The modified in the exterior of the car is impressive as well.

What is a Ferrari car without its impressive high speed performance? Novitec Rosso has made a superb boost in the power output of the car. The styling is kind of good. I wonder on what’s the opinion of Mclaren on this car?

These twins are cool. They just differ in color. It must be a lover’s car. Holding hands while both driving with different cars. This concept is absolutely romantic.

The Ferrari Dreamin and the Ferrari Italian Stallion are almost the same. Look at the latest post of Ferrari, they are both concepts of Wheelsandmore. My point here is, can’t Wheelsandmore think of different design? If ever they can, much better.

It looks like the 458 Italia is fast becoming Novitec’s most favorite ride to customize. If I can remember correctly, they actually did three or four versions of this one last year.

OK, now I am definitely amazed at Novitec. I have seen their previous works and I am quite impressed by those, but these two babies are certainly the best that I have seen from them in a while.

I think the Ferrari 458 Italia don’t need any tuning or add ons at all. This beautiful car
is perfect and Ferrari made it as its finest. For me, I’ll stick to the regular one.

Nice, this one is definitely eye candy, and they got two of the there, lovely. I really am quite amazed at how Novitec was actually able to make the car even better the second time around.

Its a good thing that this tuning company included the engine upgrade on their package. However, I just wonder on why they haven’t used a modern technology instead.

Wow! As expected from this vehicle the speed performance is great and it gets even better with the boost power output made in the aftermarket version. And I think there’s no speed limit for this car!
