#01 Extreme Speed Motorsports Ferrari F458GT Italia

In their second season with the Ferrari F458GT Italia, Extreme Speed Motorsports has shown solid improvement this 2012 ALMS season. Actually getting the car on the podium..which is good to see, as ESM was a strong competitor with the older, F430GT. For the record, ESM, and the other teams switching to the F458GT, seem to have a tough time getting the F458GT up to speed for the 2011 ALMS Season.

This variant of the F458GT has a 4.5L V8, putting down 464hp, which is less then its road going brethren. Again, these restrictions are put in place to “even the playing field” in the GT class.

If you want to catch this car in action, it’ll be running the weekend of July 6-7th at the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix.
