Is this Ferrari's 458 Italia Challenge weekend racer? It sure does look like it. According to Axis of Oversteer, the car was spied at the Vallelunga circuit in Italy. As you can see from the pics, the 458 Italia has special tires, center-locking wheels, a lexan window, and tow hooks.
Whether this is foreshadowing the new car in Ferrari's Challenge series or simply a prototype testing upcoming components for a more street-oriented Italia Challenge Stradale is to be determined. Time will tell.
