The Ferrari 458 GT2 is the most extreme racing version of the 458 Italia and follows the regulations of both ACO and FIA. As such, the engine horsepower is heavily limited, the gearbox is replaced with a Hewland six-speed sequential, ABS and Traction Control is not permitted in most of the leagues and the car must comply with the minimum weight specified by the rules plus eventual ballast can be added if needed.
