In addition, the turbocharging technology should also cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions which currently stand at 13.3 liters / 100 km (17.6 mpg US / 21.2 mpg UK) and 307 g/km, respectively.

Besides the massive power bump, the M458-T will also come with a significantly revised exterior styling, a change imposed by the adoption of turbocharging Also expect to see reshaped front and rear bumpers, updated LED headlights & taillights along with several aerodynamic tweaks. On the inside, the facelifted 458 Italia will likely borrow California T's Harman Kardon infotainment system with support for Apple's CarPlay.
