The 458 GT3 tests the latest 2013 updates at Adria Company press release.
The 2013 specification 458 Italia GT3 tested behind closed doors at the Adria circuit today. The test, organised by Ferrari's Corse Clienti department, along with Michelotto Automobili, was aimed at testing the latest updates due to be introduced next season.
This year, the car's second in competition, saw it win important titles in Europe and Asia and now it is being prepared for another season with a new aerodynamic bodywork, so that the privateer teams can once again fly the Ferrari flag in the top international GT championships.
The GT3 was created in 2011 as the racing iteration of the 458 Italia, along with GT2 and Grand AM versions. It totally lived up to expectations, matching and even beating the achievements of its predecessor the F430, which was one of the most successful cars ever built in Maranello. For a second year in succession, it won the Asia GT3 series and also shone in the Open GT, the Blancpain Endurance Championship and the International GT Sprint series, getting the better of some serious opposition, thus confirming the intense effort Ferrari has put into maintaining its technical supremacy.
