Luxury tuner does a carbon rework of the 458 Italia as well as providing a power boost and a set of 21-inch wheels.

Tuner Mansory has brought the Siracusa to the Geneva auto show halls - based on the Ferrari 458 Italia.

Named after a town in Sicily and its historic race track, the Mansory Siracusa makes even more use of carbon than does original manufacturer Ferrari as all body components are now made out of that lightweight material.

Those include a front apron with air inlets for the front coolers, a new bonnet, and side skirts with integrated ducts to feed even more cooling air to the engine. At the back is a rear skirt with integrated diffuser and a rear wing. Carbon blades replace the rear window and the total tally on the weight-saving carbon is 70 kg (154 lbs) less curb weight for the 458 Italia.

Power upgrade takes the form of an ECU remap, sport air filer and sport exhaust - all good for 590 PS (434 kW / 582 bhp) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. 0 to 100 km/h takes place in 3.2 seconds and top speed is 330 km/h (205 mph).

For the suspension, Mansory fits four sport shock absorbers and progressively-wound lowering springs which lower the 458 by 20 mm. Wheels consist of 9 x 20-inch and 11 x 21-inch forged rims wrapped in Michelin PS2 tires, 245/35ZR20 and 305/30ZR21, front and rear, respectively.

Inside the cabin, the tuner applies top materials including leather, ultra-suede and carbon for the interior finish. That includes handiwork such as the decorative stitching, a newly designed center console, aluminum pedals, and a sport steering wheel with full-sized airbag.
