The Ferrari 488 GTB might be hitting the streets as the next big thing, but the 458 Italia still is out and about turning heads – especially this stallion wearing new Brixton Forged CM5 Targa Series wheels and a few other goodies.
In the game of relevancy, this Ferrari 458 Italia won’t be hiding in anyone’s shadows anytime soon. The smooth, curvaceous lines of the Italian super car was complemented with a fresh set of Brixton Forged CM5 Targa Series wheels. The three-piece wheels feature a 6061-T6 forged aluminum construction with rolled step lips, floating spoke tips, exposed hardware, and lightweight backpad pocketing to create the perfect balance between style and performance.
Each one of the super-concave CM5 Targa Series wheels wears a Fine Textured Forged Bronze face with Forged Bronze colored lips coated with a gloss clear finish. Up front, a 9.5 x 21 fitment is used while the rear comes in with a staggered 12.0 x 22 setup to emphasize the width and wedge-shaped design of the Ferrari 458 Italia.
But that wasn’t all for the Prancing Horse. A full Novitec Rosso adjustable suspension was installed to create a sleek and seamless fitment while optimizing handling dynamics. The high-revving 4.5-liter V-8 engine also gained an IPE F1 valvetronic exhaust system that includes headers and a catalytic-converter bypass system to let all hell break loose from the tailpipes.
There may be a new kid on the block, but this Ferrari 458 Italia with Brixton Forged CM5 Targa Series wheels isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
