The replacement for the F430, the 458 Challenge moved the game on significantly. The larger capacity 4.5-litre V8 delivers 562bhp and a new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox produced seamless gear changes via the paddle shifters. Like the F430 before it, the 458 Challenge focusses on extensive weight reduction with the use of thinner body panels, carbon-fibre and the removal of all non-essential interior items, including trims, carpets and sound deadening. An FIA-approved roll-cage, carbon-fibre seat and 6-point harness are also added.  Once again centre-lock wheels are fitted, along with Lexan windows and the car now features rear air jacks for easy access in the pits. The last of the naturally aspirated V8 Challenge cars, the 458 Challenge production was limited to just 150 units.

This race car has been extensively maintained and rebuilt to a “zero” spec, meaning that all time-graded components are now rated for 100% lifetime use. With a championship-winning pedigree, this stunning 458 is ready to hit the track. A fastidiously maintained example, first delivered in March 2011, it is not only ‘ready-to-race’, but features the later Evo Pack, which includes a plethora of dynamic enhancements – the brakes have been converted to steel units and the suspension has received an upgrade to further dial in the handling on track. The exterior features new aero body enhancements including the bonnet, front splitter, rear diffuser and rear wing, and a full, bare metal respray has been carried out.  With class wins in the British GT, Britcar and GT Cup, this impeccably maintained 458 Challenge has the credentials to make it a serious contender.  Note – a second seat and side window are available, should you wish to use it for passenger rides on track days.

A superb example of the last normally aspirated Challenge car and likely to be an appreciating asset.
