We couldn’t end the year without a new tuning kit offered for the Ferrari 458 Italia. That’s like ending the year without fireworks. For the last time in 2012, a new tuner, one based in Dubai called Different Car, has produced a pretty cool body kit for the Italian supercar. In fact, this thing shouldn’t come as a big surprise to anyone considering Arabs like to take their cars to the extreme.

The entire body kit is made from carbon fiber and includes a new front bumper with two sharp corners that offers the car’s front a completely different look. The package continues with bigger air intakes, a big diffuser and vertical panels. Finally, the kit ends with a new rear spoiler that provides the car an even more aggressive look.

No changes were made under the hood, but the standard V8 engine is quite enough for the sports car, one that delivers a total of 570 horsepower at 9000 RPM, allowing the car to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.4 seconds with a top speed of up to 202 MPH.

great or not, this car sure is a "different car".

i think it is all a matter of taste. what one might like another might dislike.

i think gary is right. they must have seen what the customers ask for and delivered just that.

i think a dubai based custom tuner know something about what the market there is. so i guess this car is adapted to that.

it would have been nice if they would have fiddled with the engine a little. but hey, 570 HP is more than enough!

otto is right smiley. i’d rather feel sad because another guy has a 200.000$ car like mine.

maybe they will be a little annoyed and maybe somewhat sad. but hey, i’d rather be sad in a custom made ferrari than not at all.

imagine the rage of two arab guys meeting in dubai, driving the 458 with the same body kit!

the arabs sure love their cars. the owner of this 458 will love it better, because it is special.

we have to consider the market this car is addressed to. so yes, i think it is great for that market.

the 458 will remain a great car, no matter what.

i think it looks different. not good or worse, but different.

i might be considered a purist, but i agree. it looked better.
