After his highly detailed Porsche 991 GT3 Cabriolet, WCF reader Steve Morfouasse is back with another project and this time it's a hypothetical Ferrari 458 GTO.

After his highly detailed Porsche 991 GT3 Cabriolet, WCF reader Steve Morfouasse is back with another project and this time it's a hypothetical Ferrari 458 GTO.

Steve decided to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Ferrari 288 GTO by creating a modern version based on the 458 Speciale. He developed more than just several detailed renders as he also envisioned technical specifications for his Gran Turismo Omologato pracing horse which would sit above the 458 Speciale in Ferrari's lineup.

Limited to 472 units, the Ferrari 458 GTO is 110 kg lighter (at 1,180 kg) than the Speciale while power has been bumped by 95 HP (70 kW) and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) to 700 HP (522 kW) and 640 Nm (472 lb-ft) by installing a twin-turbo system for the 4.5-liter V8. This hardware update has allowed the vehicle to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.6 seconds and a 208 mph (340 km/h) top speed.

The weight savings were possible by installing carbon fiber mirrors, front panels, hood and a polycarbonate rear window. In addition, it also has a carbon fiber rear diffuser and a titanium exhaust system while both the exterior and interior styling mimic the 288 GTO.
