The experience of owning a track specific car (along with all the support peripherals/spares etc) seems truly awesome which a very few can pull off!!

Just 1 question though - Does the 458 Challenge (GT racecar) and/or similar cars come with an experienced service support team that preps the car before its taken on the track??

Cheers!

For sure,a car as challenging as this, does need its share of expertise, skilled technicians and support staff not only to prep the car but also for preventive maintenance if any, every time she runs.

This car is not meant for just straight line acceleration. The testing is being planned for one of the circuits in India.

Sorry for jumping the gun, the waiting game has now started spoiling the fun (it rhymed!). I think we’ve had enough and more teasers.

Some proper pics of the car, please?
