The one-off Ferrari 458 Italia Niki Lauda created late last year is currently up for sale from none other than famed supercar tuner, Edo Competition.
Despite being over 7 months old, the advertisement says that the 458 Italia Niki Lauda has covered just 5 km! The car is a standard Ferrari 458 Italia featuring a colour scheme similar to that of the 1970′s classic racers. The roof, side sills and elements of the front bumper feature a white design. The wheels are finished in gold and the car features an Italian flag running down the centre, including through the interior!
During Lauda’s tenure at Scuderia Ferrari, the team took three consecutive Constructors’ titles and two Drivers’, missing out on the third drivers’ title on account of the tragic accident that forms the centre of the “Rush” story. The Ferrari 458 Italia Niki Lauda was created through the company’s Tailor Made personalisation programme with the collaboration of a personal designer from the Maranello Style Centre.
Beyond the visual upgrades, this car remains mechanically identical to the ‘standard’ Ferrari 458 Italia. As a result, it features a potent 4.5-litre V8 engine delivering a 562 hp at an ear-piercing 9000 rpm. This high-revving engine is then mated to a quick-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
