2011 FERRARI 458 CHALLENGE – Red (currently wrapped Flat Black), 5,000 km’s.
This 458 Challenge has previously been owned and raced by John Baker, it was campaigned by Extreme Speed Motorsports and has been kept is exceptional and ready to race condition. It has never sustained any major crash damage!
It is fitted with 2014 specification Ferrari Challenge Evo Aero Kit, the brake rotors and pads where installed new at Daytona, February 2015 and thus have only run one total event. A new engine was installed Oct. 2012 and has very few hours on her. The gearbox was rebuilt in late May of 2014 due to a gearbox failure at Laguna Seca Raceway, the last service on the gearbox was completed before the Jan. test at Daytona 2015 and thus the clutch is almost new.
