Today the first image is being revealed of the Ferrari’s new GT2 contender. Meant to replace the outgoing 430, this will be Ferrari’s main hope at beating Porsche and Corvette in ALMS, FIA-sanctioned races and at Le Mans.
The outgoing Ferrari 430 has had an extended service with Ferrari which began in the 2006 season. Probably a high-point for the model came at the 2008 24 Hours of Le Mans when the Risi Competizione car placed first in GT2. Risi and other teams such as AF Corse and CRS Racing are probably looking at the new 458 development with a keen eye.
