Arrow 2015 Ferrari 458 to go Turbo! Spotted Testing

Yes, the word from the vine is that the 2015 Ferrari 458, dubbed unofficially the 458M is to go with a 3.8-litre Turbocharged V8 instead of the present 4.5-litre NA V8. The horse count is also rumored to go up to 670.

The absolute first testmule has been spotted and now it visibly looks very similar to the current car except for the Speciale-esque dual exhausts.

This is indeed sad news for us Purists, looking at the California T , I wouldn't be Surprised if the Prancing horse losses its eargasmic exhaust note due to the Turbos but the power gain on the other hand is Welcoming News.
Hope they still retain the NA V8 and achieve better results ofcourse with an eargasmic exhaust note.
