The German tuning house DMC has released a stunning upgrade package for the Ferrari 458 Italia that brings owners in line with the latest Ferrari design language. The Monte Carlo package includes a new front bumper, carbon-fiber front lip and new bumper diffusers. DMC has also added a set of PUR 21-inch wheels in the front on 22-inch wheels in the rear. Both sets of wheels are made from a lightweight forged alloy. Front wheels have been encased inside 255/30 Pirelli Sport Tires while the rear set is fitted with 335/25s. DMC has created all parts for this kit to be fully modular so that they can be replaced at any time with OEMs.
For those out there that own a Ferrari 458 Italia and want the look of a Ferrari 458 Speciale without having to go out and spend several hundred thousands more on a Speciale can achieve the look of the upgraded supercar at a fraction of the price. German tuning house DMC has released the Monte Carlo Carbon Edition. This upgrade kit features carbon fiber body parts such as the front bumper winglets, side skirt blades and fender vents. The visual impact is exaggerated by blacked out headlights and racing stripes down the middle of the car.
The installation kit is non-intrusive since DMC’s aftermarket components are designed to fit onto factory mounting points. For a little extra cash, DMC will swap out the wheels on the 458 for the 21-inch front and 22-inch rear stance that is found on the Ferrari 458 Speciale.
One downside to this setup is that all the upgrades are cosmetic with nothing being done to boost the horsepower of the donor car. So while the real deal 458 Speciale puts down 605hp, the DMC Monte Carlo Carbon continues to deliver a still respectable 570hp.
German tuning company DMC recognized how the world immediately fell in love with the LaFerrari and quickly went to work creating a rendering that reflects the unique style of DMC. DMC took to Facebook to release a concept rendering of the LaFerrari that they have named the “LaQuattro.”
As impressive as this rendering is, the biggest challenge towards making this project real is finding one of the 499 owners that paid over a million dollars to purchase the LaFerrari that would be willing to see their car go through such a transformation. Given the reputation of DMC as one of the best supercar tuning companies on the planet, we expect that someone will be willing to offer up a LaFerrari donor car for this special project.
German luxury refiner DMC has unveiled its newest limited edition project, the Ferrari 458 Italia Estremo Edizione 10/10. Only 15 vehicles will be made in this very special limited production run with every third client receiving a special Gold-Edition that features a Custom Owner Plate signed by the car’s designer and an extra body part that is being kept a secret. All 15 editions are based on the Ferrari 458 Italia with improvements being made to the power of the vehicle and a stunning new body that is significantly lighter due to the use of carbon fiber.
The picture included in this post is from the release of the first example that was assembled by DMC’s partner in Japan for a client in Tokyo. The DMC Ferrari 458 Italia Estremo Edizione 10/10 displays a completely new front fascia with modified air channels for better cooling. Additional improvements include a new side-vented front hood and redeveloped side panels that control airflow. The rear of the vehicle displays a massive carbon fiber wing spoiler designed to create downforce. The new air-filter and exhaust system add an additional 22 horsepower to the already powerful engine creating a Ferrari 458 Italia capable of doing 0-100 mph in just 3.1 seconds.
Even though the German tuning program DMC may be best known for their work on Lamborghini Adventador projects, they have proven once again that they are capable of handling any Italian supercar.
DMC originally rose to fame by being the first to customize the Aventador with their Molto Veloce kit, and now they are looking to do the same by offering a complete re-design for the Ferrari F430. The project is called Carbonio, and will include a hefty dose of carbon fiber to dress up the F430, bringing the overall design closer to the styling used on the Scuderia.
As this project is far from complete, the pictures released by DMC are only a tease of what to expect. From these photos we can draw clues, such as the entire front end being wrapped in carbon fiber including the front lip that has been named “the Sword.” No word yet on when the project will be complete or what else will be done. Regardless of what comes next, DMC has definitely chosen the perfect car for this edition and we look forward to what comes next.
It can be quite hard to make a car look sportier than the original without ruining the complete design. German supercar turner DMC set out to accomplish that feat on the newest member of the Ferrari fleet, the 2014 LaFerrari. DMC has taken this hybrid to a whole new level by combining elements from the Ferrari GTO, the XX and FXX. All the changes made for this digital rendering were cosmetic with zero alterations being made to the LaFerrari’s original DNA except for a race inspired exhaust. For as wild as the FXXR is, these ideas may not be farfetched. Many of the carbon fiber details and the sharper lines, not to mention the rear spoiler are items that can all become a reality should Ferrari introduce a track edition. There is no word as to whether DMC has any plans to actually build the FXXR. One serious setback to making the FXXR a reality is that there are only 499 potential customers in existence and with the LaFerrari costing $1.4 million, it’s hard to say if any of the owners will be willing to undergo such a radical transformation.
The German tuning company DMC has recently released their “Elegante” styling kit onto the Ferrari 458 coupe for the first time. DMC had recently applied this styling kit to a Ferrari 458 Spider. The “Elegante” styling kit adds even more style and aggressiveness to the already stylish and aggressive Italia. This is done with a complete aerodynamic package that includes front lips, side skirts, carbon fiber front hood and the rear diffuser.
The engine also gets an upgrade in power that boosts the 458 “Elegante” to an impressive power output of 608 horsepower. This was achieved by a remapped ECU and a new stainless-steel exhaust system. Being that the base 458 Italia comes standard with 562 horsepower, this boost in power is a respectable jump in numbers considering that no major engine work was done.
