Not attracting enough attention in your Ferrari 458? Swiss tuning company, Mansory, has just revealed the Mansory 458 Italia Siracusa at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. It features an outrageous bodykit and colour scheme as well as moderate engine enhancements that are sure to fulfill your needs.

The Mansory 458 Italia Siracusa features an all-carbon fibre bodykit complete with additional fins, scoops and vents throughout the entire piece. There’s new vents next to the headlights and side scoops towards the rear of the sill panels, while the nose has been replaced to resemble a Ferrari Enzo hypercar.

At the back there’s many more shards of carbon fibre. Some of them form a new rear splitter and diffuser system while other profile highlights to the tail light surrounds. A giant piece of carbon is also used to form a new rear deck wing. The entire, and quite obvious, black and yellow colour theme is also carried over from the front of the car to the rear. All up, the new bodykit provides a weight saving of around 70kg over the original Ferrari 458 Italia.

The Mansory 458 Italia Siracusa is not all about attracting attention on the outside though, the interior is also treated to a black and yellow fight for attention, even if it is toned down somewhat. There’s newly trimmed seats with yellow stitching and highlights, a new Mansory steering wheel and a number of leather and ultra suede touches, not to mention a liberal use of carbon fibre.

This package is not about all show and no go, though. The 4.5-litre Ferrari V8 has been tuned to produce an extra 20kW of power and an extra 20Nm of torque, so now it produces 440kW and 560Nm, respectively. These engine enhancements are enough to improve the 458’s 0-100km/h acceleration time from 3.4 seconds, down to just 3.2 seconds.
