The German tuner seems to have a thing for both Ferraris and racing stripes.
knows that ridiculous chrome wraps and unnecessary wings do not a good tune job make. The German company prefers to keep things low-key-at least when it comes to the exterior. Nowhere else is this more evident than in the Ferraris that come out of Wheelsandmore. These Italian Stallions all have beefier engines and barely upgraded exteriors. If you're in to subtle tune jobs, then continue reading below. Sometimes a racing stripe and a new set of rims are all you need.
Wheelsandmore gave the Ferrari F430 a speedy makeover, bumping its 4.3-liter V8 from 490hp to 537hp, increasing its top speed to 202 mph. The power bump comes courtesy of an ECU reflash and a custom stainless steel exhaust. Wheelsandmore left the exterior untouched, with the only addition being the company's 20-inch, lightweight and multi-piece rims.
Just like the F430 featured prior, the Wheelsandmore 458 Italia goes light on the exterior mods and heavy on the engine upgrades. Exterior-wise, the Ferrari gets multi-piece 20s and a rad racing stripe. The 458's engine 4.5-liter V8 engine was kicked up a notch from 570hp to 620hp courtesy of a ECU remap and-surprise-a new exhaust system. These mods push the 458 from 0 to 62 in a blistering-fast 3.32 seconds.
California Dreamin' is the name of this Ferrari California tuned by Wheelsandmore. The engine of the Dreamin' was tweaked from 460hp and 357 lb-ft of torque to 500hp and 525 lb-ft of torque thanks to the addition of a 200 cell sports catalyst and pre-muffler replacement tubes. The German tuners lowered the California 40mm lowering springs. The California Dreamin' also features new side skirts, a carbon spoiler, black plasma-coated end tips and barely there carbon additions to the front and rear bumpers.
The 458 Italia Spider "Perfetto" is just about as sexy as they come. Wheelsandmore equipped the Ferrari with a complete carbon fiber body kit that lowers the 458's total weight by 66 pounds. The carbon fiber parts include a rear diffuser, fuel cap, rear fog lamp covers, side-mirror covers and spoiler fins. A new exhaust system with valve control, added manifolds, an ECU flash and carbon-airbox push the 458 Italia up to 647hp and 468lb-ft of torque.
Ferrari's 599 GTO was pushed to 715hp when Wheelsandmore got its hands on the now-retired Italian supercar. The tuned Ferrari looks absolutely stunning with its black-on-yellow paint job. (The racing stripe really works.) The whole package sits on a set of three-piece 21-inch 6Sporz covered by Hankook S1 Evo tires.
