Video: Ferrari 458 twin turbo by Underground Racing

Renowned Lamborghini tuner, Underground Racing, has developed a Ferrari 458 twin-turbo package and has released a nice little YouTube video showing the package potential.

Underground Racing calls it the Stage 1 kit which includes two turbochargers mounted onto the practically standard 4.5-litre V8 Ferrari engine. In stock form, the direct-injection engine pumps out 419kW at 9000rpm and 540Nm at 6000rpm.

Underground Racing says the twin-turbo Ferrari 458 offers around 522kW (700hp) running on normal 93 octane fuel. Matched up to the standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the twin-turbo Ferrari 458 literally pulls like a train with relentless acceleration.
