So the Ferrari 458 Italia is as good as it gets…really, it is the benchmark to precision performance and engineering. But if you thought the 458 wasn’t enough car for you and you wanted to take it to the extreme just like you would dump an entire bottle of Frank’s Red Hot sauce on nuclear Buffalo Wings, don’t worry. Tuning house Underground Racing will agree with you, which is why they have just recently taunted the public with their new twin-turbo package for the Italia. EXTREME!
“There was something missing,” claimed Underground Racing. And to remedy that missing link is UR’s Stage 1 Performance package for the 458, which features—you guessed it—a bolt-on twin-turbo package.
But wait, there’s more! If you want to really stretch the performance of the 458, UR will also be introducing a “twin-turbo built engine” in their Stage 2 package that will feature a more in-depth build of the 4.5L Ferrari V8. Full performance specs of the “builds” have yet to be released, but to put this in perspective, the stock 458 has 562hp and 398 lb-ft of torque that guns it to 60 in under 3.4 seconds onto a top speed of 202 mph. How much more could you really ask for after Underground Racing’s new packages?
