Anderson Germany has tackled another Ferrari tuning project, on this occasion the tuning firm has given the 458 Italia sports car a thorough carbon-fibre makeover as well as improving power and incorporating a new wheel/tyre option.

Ferrari's dramatic 458 Italia was presented two years ago, in September 2009, at the Frankfurt IAA as the successor of the F430. This sports car is equipped with a V8-engine which comes with a 7-gear dual clutch transmission and features electronic Vehicle Dynamics Control, ABS, differential gear and traction control, all linked together.

Dusseldorf-based Anderson Germany has dressed the 458 Italia up in a carbon outfit to create the "458 Carbon Edition". The new carbon aero package includes a sporty front lip spoiler, front bumper flaps, wider side skirts, a rear lip spoiler, engine air outlets, window air intake grille and front bumper ventilation grilles.

To boost the carbon 'effect' further, the roof, bonnet, mirrors, door handles, engine cover and diffuser, as well as tail light trims, have all been manually coated with carbon.

The Anderson Germany project also gets a claimed performance upgrade. It is claimed to have 53 more horsepower, along with the optimised software. This increase was possible, says the tuner, due to the new exhaust system which can be adjusted by remote control in three sound stages and features a racing catalyst, heat protection, and special tailpipe (offering a claimed 19 hp), bringing the total engine capacity to 623 hp.

Besides windows and tail light tinting, the makeover is completed with a new tyre and wheel combination. Following the central theme of this project the drop-center rims are carbon-coated in a complementing body colour. The front axle features 9x21-inch wheels with 255/30-21 tyres while the rear axle has 12x22-inch wheels shod with 335/25-22 tyres.
