We can understand the dilemma as a Ferrari owner, you purchase your 488 but it just isn’t exclusive enough, should there be another one in the same city in the same spec, shameful. So just in case you think your Ferrari 488 GTB turbo isn’t exclusive enough, Misha Rade Djordjevic’s Misha Designs has not one but two body kits to make your special car just that much more special.
Their front treatment, he says, was inspired by the front splitters used on Formula One cars, while the rear is taken from that of the track-only FXX-K.
The Regular kit comprises the front bumper, bonnet, side skirts, side air intake covers, rear bumper and spoiler wing, while the widebody Limited edition (and he means it, he’s only going to make 20 sets) includes 75mm wider-than-standard front and rear quarter-panels, a bigger, more prominent rear diffuser and bigger rear wing.
You’ll also have to shop around for wider rims and tyres (or spacers); the standard kit will look a little silly inside the now much deeper wheel-wells.
All the components are made from carbon fibre, and bolt straight onto the existing brackets for the original Ferrari panels – which means that, should you ever want to sell your 488 GTB, you have the option of returning it to standard.
The styling is echoed in Misha’s bonnet design, more sharp-edged than Ferrari’s, with a large centre panel finished in clear lacquer, so that admirers are left in absolutely no doubt what it’s made of.
Misha Designs is taking pre-orders now, for first deliveries late in April or early in May 2017. Price, as they say, on application. The only other drawback is Misha is based in LA so could be a costly way to personalise your Ferrari for European owners.
