Capristo has developed a new engine cover for the Ferrari 458 Spider.

Led by Antonio Capristo, the German company near Arnsberg has decided to use carbon fiber to make a new see-through engine cover for the 458 Spider. It has more vents which guarantee better cooling and also features centrally lengthwise inlaid glass. It can be painted in any desired color and is available for a steep 9,800 EUR.

The engine has remained untouched which means we're dealing with a V8 4.5-liter unit borrowed from the 458 Italia producing 563 hp (425 kW) and 398 lb-ft (540 Nm) of torque. It needs less than 3.4 seconds for the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run and can reach a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).
