Its cant be a Khan, it has nice wheels and some taste.
Khan design cars are far more tacky.

458 coupe normale, California T, Speciale A, 458 GT3, FF Maserati Ghibli diesel!
on way in 2015: La F, and 488, 2016 488 spider

I like it, I prefer the 458's without two-tone, but this is a nice example.

One of the more tame and tasteful after-market modifications.
The specs would look great on the 'Scuderia' equivalent of the 458.

I saw another, slightly heavier optioned Kahn example whose aggressive yet sculpted rims and (stock?) carbon rear-strip are quite appealing. Finding that the carbon rear-strip brings a cohesiveness to the darker roof and carbon front and side-strips. The yellow calipers provide a contrast which highlights the shields and wheel centers. I'm speaking purely on aesthetic opinion, and unsure about the price variance or value in relation to the first example or to stock.

A Rosso Corsa 458 with a carbon rear-strip parked along a Scuderia, F40, and/or F50, would share the 'blacked out' rear design trait throughout the entire set. They would make a fabulous and famous rear-end picture, too.

I like Ramy's version much better, only because I don't care for dark wheels.
The two-tone mirrors are a nice accent too.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

I like both and think the 458 does well in two tone.

I am not a fan of the bi-color scheme, but it works with this car, as the car also has the sport sills. Also has the darker forged wheels. The interior absolutely not. Has the cheap seats, you really need to sit it them, they pinch my legs, and are not even close to being as comfortable as the race seats. Also IMO, a black interior with red stitching would fit the car much better.

You can save a few bucks by ordering the normal sills, and having them wrapped in matte film. Even when you order the sport sills, most are going to clear wrap them anyway, so now you just added more expense. Might have to think about deleting this off my spec, and putting the money towards my clear bra and exhaust fund.

Two-tone red is so much better than just red on 458... I love it!

O.K., i'll be the lone dissenter. Don't like that silver w/red. Almost gives me the impression of primer, like it's not finished. Would prefer the top black. One man's opinion.....

Don't like the roof color, and the wheels too. The black ones make the car "fast n furious", the grey ones make the car feel older.
I don't think there will be a better 458 Italia than the normal one.
and diamond wheels looks so great!

I like it a lot.

Only problem is you can't go half way with customization - which is why I love the 16M Scuds.

Parts of cf on the exterior doesn't work - if you are going down that path go all the way or not at all.

Saw this 458 in Rosso Fuoco at a London show yesterday... never seen the colour before, but it is a very nice red colour option

Wow, that does look nice. Rosso Fuoco might be my new favorite color.

Agree - stunning!

I am starting to come around to appreciating Red Ferrari's.
