LUX MOTORWERKS WIDEBODY FERRARI 458 ITALIA

A Ferrari 458 is luxury at its finest. This sports car is beautiful on its own, but shops, customizers and tuners see the exotic as a starting point for something epic. Such was the case for LUX Motorwerks in Keyport, NJ, who had a customer come in with his 458 for some basic repairs, which was when CEO Stephen Stasiulewicz knew it could be so much more.

“The client asked us to replace his front bumper,” Stephen explains. “During this time, I spoke to him and recommended that we do a full transformation of the vehicle, including a Prior-Design body kit, exhaust, wheel upgrade, suspension, and an audio system.” Turns out, the client really wanted something that would stand out and felt comfortable leaving his Ferrari in the hands of Stephen and his shop. “Being that he was a previous client of LUX, he gave us 100% of his trust.”

YesWhen choosing modifications for cars that come into his shop, Stephen and his crew always work with the customer by showing them what their vehicle has the potential of becoming and offer their suggestions. But for this particular Ferrari makeover, using a Prior-Design kit was a no brainer for Stephen. “I have worked with Prior-Design before and I really liked their design for the 458 out of all the other widebody suppliers for this vehicle,” he admits “Their kit adds a nice clean touch to the 458 that doesn’t make the vehicle appear too overdone. It added to the overall appeal and aesthetics of the Ferrari.” Another favored addition by Stephen were the AlphaOne Wheels, which were a custom-made, one-off wheel in a brushed translucent gold by Joe Labon from Ultimate Auto in Orlando. “We were looking at several wheel designs and in the end I felt the design we came up with suited the car perfectly,” he adds.

Aside from the Prior-Design bodykit and Alpha One wheels, a NOVITEC performance suspension system allows it to lay low for an even more aggressive stance, while an Armytrix performance exhaust boosts power and provides a menacing growl. Inside, carbon fiber accents and trim were added, as well as a complete audio upgrade with a Pioneer’s top of the line AVIC-8200NEX receiver, Morel Elate speakers, four JL Audio 6.5 inch subwoofers and Alpine amplifier.

Stephen and the LUX Motorwerks crew made sure all the details were perfect, which is what makes this 458 a fine example of a clean and custom build that other 458s can’t be measured up against.
