H/t: Car Scoops
Supercar replicas are nothing new, but rarely do they come close to their real-life counterpart. Ilya Strekal may have found the best looking Ferrari 458 Italia replica yet, but the hardest part may have been tracking down an actual owner of one in St. Petersburg and having them agree to do a side-by-side comparison video. How long did it take to build? So far, it has taken the shop over 2-years to get to this point.
Upon closer inspection, you’ll definitely see some differences, such as the missing emblems, gaps between headlights / hood / body panels, windshield shape, and a few more of the curved areas. However, one thing they did get right, as you can see in the second video, is the interior, which nearly mimics its real-life counterpart perfectly.
