Ferrari 458 Italia Challenge at Monza – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Even though Ferrari hasn't given the official word, it's clear that the automaker is working on a hardcore 458 Italia Challenge prepped for race duty. We first spied the car in May, and now we have video of the beastly Ferrari ripping off some test laps at Monza with a couple of 430 GT2s in tow. Nothing like the sound of race-spec Ferraris to enhance your day.

Visually, not much has changed since we first saw the 458 Challenge, and while we expected to have already heard the full details about Ferrari's newest stunner, it appears that the full kit of information won't be released until later this year (in Paris, perhaps?). Consider us on the edge of our seat.

      This car is definitely a step in the right direction, the current 430 Challenge car is way too pedestrian sounding for a race car.

      The 458 Italia is one of the cars in a poll on 'what car would you sell everything to own.'
      I wouldn't for this one... would you?

      I really like this car, but it certainly has some strange proportions...

      I really wish my Mazdaspeed3 sounded like that. My lord.

      I'd be WOT whenever I had to accelerate and I'd drive around in 1st and 2nd gear everywhere, I don't care what the traffic is doing.

        Our 09 MS3's will never sound like that =] But with no downpipes, no resonators and the right kind of muffler we can sound like WW2 fighter planes. Surprisingly deep for a 4 banger.

      Too short of a video.
