Technology has come a long way even in the past couple of years. That’s especially more evident when somebody from halfway around the world asks somebody to do something on their cars.

That’s the situation Canadian tuner SR Auto Group found itself in after a Chinese customer asked SR to work on his Ferrari 458 Italia, a project that was only accomplished because of what SR described as a lot of "persistence, drive, and ambition".

The pretty cool part about this story was how the Chinese customer found about SR Auto Group. Care to venture a guess?

Yup, he found SR Auto Group online.

To its credit, SR Auto Group went ahead and did the build, dressing up the Ferrari supercar with what looks like a chrome-red body. The two-tone treatment also includes a polished-black hood and roof, and concludes with a set of 19-inch Modern Black PUR 4OUR Monoblock wheels.

The project took a couple of months to finish, but in the end, all parties involved got what they wanted. And they have the continuous growth of technology to thank for it.
