The Ferrari 458 Challenge is a circuit car which made its debut in 2009. Based on the 458 Italia, it is seen as the successor to the F430. Its 4,500cc displacement engine produces 570ps at 9,000rpm. For the final classy touch the interior of the original car was designed with input from 7-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher. This exciting machine is the first 1/10 scale subject to appear on the newly-designed TT-02 chassis. The TT-02 chassis is a 4WD entry level machine designed for easy assembly and high durability. Just like its predecessor, the TT-01 (first released in April 2003 with the iconic Enzo Ferrari body) the TT-02 is a great platform to start your on-road racing hobby or bashing in the parking lot. The TT-02 design incorporates advancements that make it possible to use modern day battery technologies simpler as well as giving the user more adjustability.
