Ferrari 458 Challenge testing at Monza – Click above to watch the video

The curves. The Power. The... Ferrariness. It's hard to get too much of the 458 Italia Challenge, and, luckily, we've come across some video of the race-ready Ferrari testing at Monza. The four-minute flick only shows a few angles of the pride of Maranello, but what we can guarantee is crisp images, ridiculously perfect exhaust melodies and a powerful desire to drive a 458 on track. At a few points it looks like the 458 Challenge isn't being pushed too hard, but every now and again we would catch a glimpse of the glowing red front brake rotors, assuring us that the driver is giving the lighter, lower 458 a considerable workout. Hit the jump to enjoy the video for yourself, if only to hear just how wonderful the Challenge sounds.

      I saw the F430 Challenge cars in Montreal this year and those sounded good but they don't hold a candle to the 458 Challenge.

      It's not loud enough!


      Seriously though that is one wicked sounding Ferrari. Great camera work catching the "surface of the sun" rotor glow, and great sound capturing. Kudos to Ferrari and the contributor of this media :~)

      Okay, that is officially one of the best sounding cars IN THE WORLD!

      That is what a Ferrari should be. I drive stick, but listen to those downshifts as the rotors glow going into corners. Count me in for the Ponzi scheme.

        • 4 Years Ago

        • 4 Years Ago

      i don't get excited by Ferraris, i'll have to hear it live at racing events. Direct Injection engines just don't sound as good as the older non DI engines.

        Only ferrari that excite me are the Enzo and f40.. the rest I dont really care for.

      The shot at 1:38 is absolutely incredible. Look at the speed and beauty.

      I just blew my pants! I can listen to that sound track all day.
      • 4 Years Ago
      ...aaaaaannd; now I have to change my pants.


      Nice sound, whoever recorded this.

      And btw, why the video?

      That sound is all you need.

      I know what my new ringtone is...


      @Cameron: I concur; +or 1:01-1:18 --If Satan ever drives a car to come to steal your mortal soul, That's what it will sound like.

      Good one Venom LMAO!!! I think that's the most pissed off sounding car I've ever heard... AWESOME! I can't believe how bright those discs get. Especially the second pass, they looked like they were about to explode or something.

      Oh yeah!!!!!
