According to a recent report, the high-performance version of the Ferrari 458 will eschew the Scuderia name and adopt the Monte Carlo moniker.

The name change would be unfortunate, but the car will reportedly offer 620 PS (456 kW / 611 hp) which is 50 PS (37 kW / 49 hp) more than the standard model. We can also expect revised styling and weight saving measures, but the exact details remain elusive.

There's no word on when the car could be introduced, but the 458 Italia was unveiled in 2009 so a debut shouldn't be too far off.
