To create a new look, Misha Designs’ Ferrari 458 body kit takes cues from LaFerrari FXX K

The Ferrari 458 may already have a replacement waiting in the wings, the 660-horsepower 488 GTB, but a new styling package may have you revisiting the Italian brand’s supercar yardstick.

The news comes from Los Angeles aftermarket manufacturer Misha Designs, who recently released preliminary renderings of its upcoming 458 body kit. One look at the car (especially the rear end) and it becomes very apparent that the kit was inspired by the hardcore LaFerrari FXX K.

The package isn’t in production yet, but it’s also clear from the digital sketches that Misha Designs has a carbon fiber fetish. And we like that.

Up front, you’ll notice a redesigned hood full of aggressive vents, splitters, and a new front bumper, nearly all of which wear carbon’s distinct weave. There are new side skirts and fenders as well, and out back, an FXX K-style rear diffuser and rear wing sculpt the air and apply downforce as needed. Instead of the spoiler featuring independent blades like on LaFerrari, though, Misha Designs’ version is one solid piece.

The company is now accepting pre-orders for the limited edition package, but delivery dates are still undetermined.

The FXX K, a 1035-hp track demon, is expensive even by supercar standards. Priced at $2.7 million, the $257,412, 562-hp 458 Spider looks downright cheap by contrast. Add in an undetermined amount of scratch for Misha Designs’ body kit (prices haven’t been released either), and you may have the next best thing.

A little less impressive when you put your foot down, perhaps but hey; it’s got the looks, and you can actually drive it on the road.

The Tesla Model Y is far from my favorite EV, but I’m pretty close to buying one
Tesla Model Y One Millionth Car

I may finally be on my way toward buying my first EV. Sure, I've tested dozens of electric car models over the years, but despite that (or perhaps because of it), I have yet to buy one. But my family is growing, and my wife and I aren't so sure about carting our future kids around in an aging car that lacks the safety features of modern vehicles.

Because of the fact that we're expecting our kid in January, we have a bit of a deadline. So what are we leaning toward? Well, despite the fact that it's far from my favorite EV, we may actually end up just getting a Model Y.

Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally kicks up some dirt
Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally driving on a dirt road.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV pushed the hallowed Mustang nameplate in a different direction, and it's doing that again with a new performance variant. Debuting in 2024, the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is designed for fun on both pavement and dirt.

Rallying is a form of motorsport where drivers compete to set the quickest time over a course — usually a closed road or trail — rather than a dedicated racetrack that includes a variety of surfaces like dirt, gravel, or even snow. Rallying has inspired some epic performance road cars over the years, including the Subaru WRX, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, and Ford's own Focus RS, but it's never really been associated with the Mustang.

BMW scraps its unpopular approach to heated seats
Driver's seat and dashboard of the 2023 BMW iX M60.

BMW caused much consternation last year when it launched a subscription-only option for heated car seats.

The idea of having to pay a monthly fee of $18 to keep your posterior warm during the winter months still seems as absurd as ever, but the good news is that the German automaker has now decided to scrap the fee. What particularly irked customers was that they felt they were being forced to cough up extra for functions that would previously have been expected as standard. The fiasco even prompted a community of hackers to offer their services to unlock the feature for those unwilling to pay extra for it.
