German tuner prepares a car for SEMA with a carbon-fiber body kit, output increase and a new sound system.
German tuner DMC will be bringing its 458 Italia 'Milano' to the SEMA show this week.
Based on the Ferrari 458 Italia, DMC starts with a little engine tuning to squeeze a few more horses out of the 4.5 liter V8 unit. Output gets dialed up to 610 PS (449 kW / 602 hp) and 569 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque compared to the series 570 PS (420 kW / 562 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft). Top speed is also slightly higher now at 330 km/h (205 mph) compared to the standard 325 km/h (202 mph).
DMC makes its body kits out of carbon fiber using laser scans of the car to replace original parts. The aero kit here includes front bumper wings, side skirts, rear diffuser and fog-lamp aprons. The mirror covers are also done in carbon fiber.
The 458 Italia 'Milano' features a stainless-steel exhaust system and a wheel set with 9J x 21-inch rims wrapped in VA 255/30ZR21 tires at the front and 12J X 22-inch rims at the back fitted with 335/25/ZR22 tires.
This being SEMA, a sound system package was also installed on the car, courtesy of Hollywood-based sound specialists Al & Ed.
