Video shows the 458 Challenge racer out for some testing on the Fiorano circuit.

Here's a video of a Ferrari 458 Challenge caught in the raw doing some testing around the Ferrari headquarters and on the track at Fiorano.

The only soundtrack is that of the 458 Challenge doing its usual growling as it tests its mettle both on the streets and on the Fiorano circuit.

The 458 Challenge is a racer based on the 458 Italia built for Ferrari's single-racing series. It features a 4499cc V8 engine producing 570 PS (562 hp / 419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque coupled to a modified dual-clutch gearbox with 'F1-Trac' (traction control) for wet and dry conditions. The 458 Challenge laps the Fiorano test track in 1 minute and 16.5 seconds.

The car also comes with a race suspension featuring solid aluminum bushings, stiffer springs, and single-rate dampers, the same Brembo CCM2 brakes from the 599XX and 19-inch wheels fitted with Pirelli tires. Weight on the 458 is reduced by means of thinner body panels, carbon fiber components and Lexan windows.
