The rim and wheel manufacturers from HRE had a variety of exotic cars at the SEMA Show to showcase their wheels, one being the Oakley Design Ferrari 458 Italia. This car was first released over the summer, with an original production number of five cars all in white. Since then it has been extended to create seven of these automobiles, another white one, and this red one seen here. With the addition of the 20-inch HRE wheels the Ferrari 458 dropped eleven pounds from each corner of the car. Oakley Design then installed a new carbon fiber front lip to increase downforce at the front by more than fifty pounds. A silver rear spoiler delivers an additional 48 pounds of the force to the rear when it is traveling at 150 mph.
Performance improvements consist of a reflashed ECU to make the most of the Italian Ferrari engine, boosting the number to 632 horsepower. At the track the tuning was evident, with a 0 to 62 mph time of 3 seconds, and an overall top speed of 208 mph.
