Excellent video from Maranello, Italy: The Ferrari 458 Challeng zooming around the Fiorano Circuit. Details inside.

This 2m 36s video says more about the Ferrari 458 Challenge than we ever could.  A spy video picked up by German magazine Auto Motor und Sport shows the car cruising super fast and with ease around Ferrari's Fiorano Circuit.

The stomping ground has been the recent testing facility for several 458 Challenge prototypes.  So far, most have been using grey, unfinished bumpers that are designed differently than the 458 Italia.

Ferrari's hot new car features a 562-horsepower (319-kW, 570-PS) 4.5-liter V8 engine that produces up to 540 Nm (398 ft-lb) of torque.  The engine is mated to an F1-inspired dual-clutch gearbox, with additional performance features like an electronic differential, F1-Trac control, and a racing suspension.

After seeing this clip, it is no surprise that the car can lap Fiorano in 1m 16.5s.  Check out the video, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
