2014 Ferrari 458 GT2 Works car

A race winning Factory Works car
Chassis No 
2880

Model history:

Ferrari unveiled their new GTE class racer in 2011 to take part in Championships sanctioned by ACO and FIA. The first 458 GT2/GTE was chassis 2804.

The 458 Italia GT2 drops the "flex splitter" found in the road cars and replaced with a more conventional inlet, with the air exit out through louvers in the bonnet. Under new restrictor regulations, the 4.5L engine produces about 470bhp.

Unlike the road car, which has a high-revving low-torque engine, the GT2 version only revs to 6,250 rpm, but maintains a close-to-stock torque number even with the horsepower loss. The double-clutch gearbox had to be replaced, but paddle-shifting is retained since rules in 2011 allow them.
So far the 458 Italia GT2 has had an impressive racing record and is for sure one of the most successful Ferrari racing cars. The car won the 2012 and 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 2012 12 Hours of Sebring and two editions of the Petit Le Mans, the first in 2011 and the second in 2012.

In 2011 the 458 Italia GT2 took the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup GTE Manufacturers' and the GTE PRO Team Titles, the Le Mans Series GTE Manufacturers' and GTE PRO Team and Drivers' honours and the International GT Open Overall and Super GT Team and Drivers' crowns. The following year, with the creation of an FIA-managed World Championship, the car obtained the GTE Manufacturers' and GTE PRO Team Titles in the FIA World Endurance Championship. In the same year the Italian car gained the European Le Mans Series GTE PRO Team and Drivers' honours and the International GT Open Overall and Super GT Manufacturers', Team and Drivers' crowns. In 2013 the car repeated its successes, winning the FIA World Endurance Championship GTE Manufacturers', GTE PRO Team, GTE Drivers' and GTE AM Team Titles, the European Le Mans Series GTE Team and Drivers' honours, the Asian Le Mans Series GTE Team and Drivers' crowns and the International GT Open Overall and Super GT Manufacturers' and Drivers' Titles. In 2014 the 458 Italia GT2 achieved, for the third straight year, the FIA World Endurance Championship GTE Manufacturers' and GTE PRO Team honours, as well as, for the second time in a row, the GTE Drivers' crown (which had been instituted in 2013). For the fourth time the car also clinched the European Le Mans Series GTE Team and Drivers' Titles, but it didn't take part in the International GT Open and Asian Le Mans Series Championships (the 458 Italia GT3 raced in both these series that year).
In 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 cars competed in the FIA World Endurance Championship, European Le Mans Series and Tudor United SportsCar Championship.[43]

It will most definitely be missed though, as its screaming 4.5 litre V8 has become part of sportscar racing’s modern soundtrack and hasn’t been succeed by an equally ferocious noise from the newer 488 which looks more aggressive, but sounds far more tame.

The 458 GT2 will be remembered as the last normal aspirated Ferrari GT race car.

After the season the car was retired from active racing and was fully restored by the Works team AF Corse to 2014 WEC GTE Pro standards. The car is now presented in excellent condition throughout. It still retains a lovely patina and is fully ready to go.

The car will be sold with a nice documentation, a Ferrari red book ‚Classiche certificate‘ and a AF Corse certificate of authenticity.

This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a real race and World championship winning Works Ferrari coming directly fro the Works team. The car is ideal as a center piece in any Ferrari collection but is also full eligible for the highly attractive Masters series ‚Endurance Legends‘ where it could easily win the GT category.
