Underground Racing turbos the 458 Italia

When a standard, 562bhp Ferrari just isn’t enough, here’s the… no wait, IT IS ENOUGH

Underground Racing is an American tuning company famous for injecting Lamborghinis with large amounts of ‘woah'.

Its twin-turbo Gallardos and Murcielagos regularly top around 1,000bhp and accelerate with the kind of venom usually reserved for the deepest excesses of Kerry Katona's unexplainable and continued success on television.

Now it has turbocharged the Ferrari 458 Italia, because apparently 'something was missing'. No more info as yet, other than the pictures you see before you, and that it sports two turbos (having lost its bottom somewhere).

A twin-turbo 458 Italia should radiate with the fragrant scent of F40. Somehow, it reeks of the pungent smell of death. You know what we mean.

Anyway, we've also stumbled across this video of the 458 Challenge lurking around the streets of Maranello before depositing quite a lot of rubber on Ferrari's Fiorano test track. Watch it for proof of why a 458 doesn't need twin turbos.

What's the fastest Ferrari around Fiorano?

Now share it...
