Video: Ferrari 458 Challenge spied on Fiorano test track

Updated: 


It's only a matter of time before Ferrari reveals some official footage of the 458 Challenge testing on the track, but for now we've got this spy video posted on YouTube by German magazine, Auto Motor und Sport.

Given the already stellar critical reception of the standard 458 Italia, we've no doubt the race car version will live up to expectations (just listen to the punchy V8 soundtrack that accompanies those downshifts).

The Challenge is said to be two seconds quicker round the Fiorano test track thanks to upgrades to the gearing, suspension and brakes, not to mention the usual race car weight loss.
