Looks like the Ferrari 458 Italia by Underground Racing is getting some stiff competition from none other than Heffner Performance. Early last month this Florida-based tuning firm went asses a-blazing with an Audi R8 V10, and now they’ve turned their attention to Ferrari’s latest crown jewel. Heffner is offering an upgrade package for the 458 Italia that increases the total output of the V8 engine to an impressive 820 HP, up from the standard 570 HP. Not leaving well enough alone, the tuner has also announced that this is just the beginning as more packages will follow.
But back to the task at hand. The tuner didn’t reveal how they were able to get this massive 250 HP over stock, but a new twin-turbo system and new exhaust system stick out like a sore, but beautiful, thumb. It’s likely we’ll see insane improvements over the standard Italia’s 0-60 mph sprint time of 3.4 seconds and top speed of 201 mph. Now, it’s just a matter of waiting for Heffner to spill the beans.
