It seems that the Italians folks at Ferrari are preparing the 458 Monte Carlo model for a debut later this year. Spy photographers caught the camouflaged prototype being tested in Maranello.
If you are not familiar with this model, it is basically a more powerful version of the well-known Ferrari 458 Italia.
Under the hood expect a 4.5-liter V8 powerplant producing more than 600 horsepower for a 0-100 km/h sprint in 3,4 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h.
In terms of styling, expect new front and rear bumpers, large air intakes, racing stripes, a rear diffuser and tweaked optical blocks. Ferrari will also provide new wheels, a revised sports exhaust system and a new hood.
If we are lucky, the all-new Ferrari 458 Monte Carol, a model which could be called Scuderia, may be unveiled at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, later this year.
