Meet the Ferrari 458 Spider Monaco Edition. Rather than being the work of Ferrari itself, though, it’s the latest project from opinion-splitting tuning firm Mansory. It gets the same set of tweaks as the Ferrari 458 Siracusa displayed on Mansory’s 2012 Geneva motor show stand. That means unsubtly restyled body panels, all crafted from carbonfibre. The front end has more than a whiff of Ferrari Enzo to it, while the headlights are now neighboured by some slightly questionable carbon grilles. Round the back there’s an eye-grabbing rear diffuser, which houses suitably large exhaust tailpipes. The interior is likely to be a little controversial among the Tifosi, too, with a red and white diamond pattern dominating the seats and doors. It’s designed to mirror the colours of the Monaco Principality. There’s substance beneath the ‘style’, too, with the 458 Italia’s 4.5-litre V8 engine upgraded from 562bhp and 398lb ft to 582bhp and 413lb ft. Twinned with a 60kg weight saving from all that carbon, the 0-62mph time drops to 3.2sec and a 205mph top speed is 7mph healthier than a standard Ferrari 458 Spider. Other dynamic enhancements include new shock absorbers, a 20mm lower ride height and forged alloy wheels. If Mansory’s Ferrari 458 Spider Monaco Edition pushes your buttons, then you’d better act fast – just three will be made.
