Spied! Ferrari 458 Italia GT2!! UPDATE

8 December 2010 5 Comments

I’ve been waiting to see what the new Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 and here it is.

The Ferrari 458 GT2 was caught testing at the Fiorano Ferrari Test track with Pierre Kaffer behind the wheel.

It looks pretty hard core with the flared fenders and vented hood. The bumper looks interesting but will probably look more complete when they install the front splitter. Side view mirror looks different too.

    That car (the spotted one) have front air splitter already , isn’t it ?
    It looks like have one , when you see the left side …

    The fancy front intake vent is unavailable on the GT2 model , too bad . Hence , I rather to take the 458 that you rendered .

    I couldn’t make out the front splitter as it was so thin especially from that angle. But you are correct, it does have it. Just found a side view shot of it too which shows the splitter better.

    wow, you’re render was spot-on! great job!

    I like the front “bumper” treatment you came up with better though.
