2011 Ferrari 458 Challenge For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' London event, 24 October 2019. Estimate:£95,000 - £120,000 Offered from the collection of David L Mason O.B.E.Overall winner of the 2014 & 2015 Britcar Endurance ChampionshipsUpgraded with the FF Corse Evo 2 kit The Ferrari Challenge series was launched in 1993 as a way of giving amateur drivers the opportunity to experience the thrill of motor racing on some of the most iconic circuits around the world with dealership and factory support. It has grown into a global programme with separate series in the UK, Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific and remains the longest-running single-marque racing series in existence. To date there have been six ‘Challenge’ models, and the 458 Italia Challenge was the fifth offered by Ferrari for the series, replacing the 430 Challenge which had been campaigned since 2007. Much like its predecessors, the 458 Challenge was largely based upon its road-going sibling, the 458 Italia, albeit with a plethora of optimisations for use on the track.Conspicuously and perhaps in recognition of just how potent the road car was, the 4.5-litre, naturally aspirated V-8 engine remained largely untouched, still producing 570 bhp at 9,000 rpm. Only minor tweaks to the gear ratios and recalibration of the dual-clutch F1 gearbox were deemed necessary for the track version, and even then only to improve low-range torque to improve drivability on the circuits. However, significant changes were made to the chassis, bodywork, and interior of the car. To begin with, the car was put on a serious diet, with the thickness of the aluminium bodywork reduced and in certain areas replaced with carbon-fibre panels. In addition, the glass windows and windscreen were replaced with polycarbonate alternatives. Complementing the weight savings were changes to the suspension setup of the car. Stiffer, shorter springs and light alloy dampers replaced their road-going counterparts and permitted a lowering of the car by two inches. At the same time, solid steel motorsport bushings took the place of conventional rubber items and lightweight 19-inch forged wheels wrapped in Pirelli slick tyres completed the entirely track-focussed configuration. The effect of the changes was summed up by Road & Track when they back-to-back tested the 458 Italia and 458 Challenge in 2011: ‘Put simply, stepping out of a 458 road car and into the Challenge car seems like a totally different world…this is an all-business race car.’ The 458 Challenge was also the first in the series to offer drivers the assistance of F1-Trac stability control, with three modes permitting progressively more traction-control assistance from the onboard electronics to aid less experienced drivers in low-grip conditions. Naturally, the interior is an entirely no-frills affair—fully stripped out with fixed racing bucket seats, six-point harnesses, FIA-approved roll cage, and a digital instrument cluster.This particular example has one of the richest racing histories of any 458 Challenge, having won the overall 2014 and 2015 Britcar Endurance championships at the hands of the owner and Calum Lockie, the only car to have ever won back-to-back Britcar championships; astonishingly, its first championship was won by a single point. It also benefits from having been run and maintained by marque experts FF Corse of Silverstone and features the 2014 FF Corse Evo 2 kit and respective aerodynamic upgrades. It is offered for sale freshly prepared for its next owner to enjoy, and it would make a fantastic addition to a collection focussed on Challenge Ferraris or as an entrant into club racing.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at - details above.
