Ferrari 458 receives Akrapovic Full Exhaust Install and Vorsteiner Lip

July 24th, 2013 Comments off

Our good friend Jim pulled up to the shop a few weeks back in his new Ferrari 458, he’s not your typical Ferrari owner however who lets the car sit and collect dust in an air conditioned garage. Jim makes sure all of his cars get used properly and takes great pride in modifying them to put his own personal touch on them. The car arrived already sporting plenty of carbon Oakley Design parts, but was lacking a front lip. We installed the Vorsteiner carbon fiber lower lip which features a center vent that really sets off the 458 from the front. The part fit great right out of the box and required little modification to bolt on. An Akrapovic full Titanium exhaust with carbon fiber tips was chosen to give the already menacing looking car an entoxicating tone and help the engine breath easy. Evolution Motorsports provided us with an ECU re flash to help make sure the car made use of all the extra exhaust flow provided by the Akrapovic exhaust. The car was also lowered on HRE P45S wheels treated to a one of a kind brush tinted bronze finish. It’s truly a unique looking finish in person and goes quite well with the jet black exterior. I’m sure we’ll be seeing this car again, if the extra dirt in the photos shows anything, it’s that Jim will be sure to enjoy this unique 458 and we’ll be seeing plenty of it around town!
