I think we can all agree the Ferrari 458 is a stunning machine, a technical tour de force, a wet dream on wheels.
But what happens when aftermarket specialist, Mansory gets involved? Known for its catalog of high-end conversions on some of the world’s most exclusive sports cars, Mansory can occasionally skirt the edge of tasteful restraint with its demonstration cars.
Sadly, this Monaco Edition of the 458 suffers from a bit too much carbon and way too much interior retrimming. The garish interior doesn’t really belong in such a beautiful car, but at least its well executed…
The Mansory Monaco Edition which is limited to just three vehicles, which might be a blessing, depending on your point of view. But if you’re looking for something to make your 458 Spider unique, this is the car!
Up front, the styling team has added a spoiler with revised air intakes. There’s also a new hood plus side skirts with channels to feed additional air into the engine compartment through integrated routing channels.
The rear diffuser is claimed to create downforce together with the stock rear wing.
Overall, Mansory claims to have saved around 130 lb compared to the standard 458 Spider with the addition of its own autoclaved carbon parts.
Engine power is also said to increase to 590hp thanks to software, a sports air filter and exhaust system. As a result, 0-62mph is claimed to be 3.2sec and the top speed is 205mph.
Chassis modifications stiffen the ride and lower it 20mm over Mansory forged rims in 21x9” and 22x11” dimensions with 245/35 and 305/30 ZR21 Michelin PS2 tires respectively. The leather, alcantara and carbon fiber interior has been trimmed in Monaco's national colors of red and white.
