German tuner DMC presented its own Ferrari 458 Italia “Milano” at the 2011 SEMA. The standard 4.5-litres V8 engine has been mated to different exhaust system and electronics, enough to boast its power from 570 to 602 hp and add another 5 km/h of top speed, which DMC has pushed up to 330 km/h. The real star here is the new valved stainless steel exhaust, which is 19 kg lighter than the standard kit and uses special protective heat shields. Besides, a control to manually keep the exhaust valves open will also be made available as an optional extra, only in those markets that allow for this solution, of course.
Many parts of the original bodywork have been replaced with carbon fibre bits, including side skirts, rear diffuser, sections of the front bumper and wing mirrors. DMC’s Ferrari 458 Italia Milano uses 21″ alloy wheels on the front and 22″ on the rear axle, fitted with 255/30 and 335/25 performance tyres respectively.
