MEC Design announces Ferrari 458 Spider upgrades

Looking to give your Ferrari 458 Spider a bit more personality? Boost its exclusivity? A company called MEC Design has come up with a styling package that could be just what you need.

The upgrades are subtle, with a custom front spoiler and side winglets, extended side skirts, and a new three-piece diffuser system at the back. It’s all part of the ‘Scossa Rossa’ bodykit.

To give the 458 a meaner stance, buyers can also opt for a lowered suspension package which brings the ride height down by 60mm. The body can then sit over a set of 20-, 21-, or 22-inch dark meCCon CCd5 alloy wheels.

As for the performance, the 4.5-litre naturally aspirated V8 already develops 425kW of power. However, to give it a louder and crisper bark, MEC offers a special exhaust upgrade called the ‘Apocalypse’. We can only imagine the sort of cracking soundtrack it would give off.

MEC also provides some options for the interior, such as a carbon and leather sports steering wheel, two-tone sill plates, a carbon centre console, unique floor mats, and LED light sets.

Overall, the car is nothing short of amazing in standard form. The MEC merely amplifies that.
