Ferrari 458 Challenge EVO 1:43 Scale Model Car by BRR

We show you this beautiful limited edition of only 20 pieces of the newest 458 Challenge Evoluzione. The Ferrari 458 Italia is a mid-engined sports car produced by the Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari. The 458 replaced the Ferrari F430, and was first officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is replaced by the Ferrari 488 GTB, which was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2015. In Ferrari’s first official announcement of the car, the 458 was described as the successor to the F430 but arising from an entirely new design, incorporating technologies developed from the company’s experience in Formula 1.
The body computer system was developed by Magneti Marelli Automotive Lighting. In keeping with Ferrari tradition the body was designed by Pininfarina. The 458 Challenge is a track-only racecar designed to be fielded in the Ferrari Challenge. It was presented at the Ferrari Annual Dealer Meeting on 14 July 2010. According to Ferrari it can lap the Fiorano test track in 1:16.5, which is two seconds faster than its F430 Challenge predecessor and only 0.2 seconds slower than the Ferrari FXX. Weight was reduced from the standard model through the use of thinner body panels, carbon fiber replacement panels, and polycarbonate windows and windshield. The differences over the regular road legal 458 include a racing cockpit, windows which only open through small slots, air-jack mounting on the rear to lift the car up, racing fuel filler cap, center-lock wheels, racing exhaust as well as tow hooks front and rear.
The model base is painted with a new technological material pretty similar to alluminium. The model is protected by a hand made plexiglass display case.
