We are pleased to offer 2011 Ferrari 458 GT3 s/n 3256. Thanks to its 4.5-liter engine putting out 562 HP @ 9,000 RPM; an all-alloy chassis and a largely carbon-fiber body weighing only 2,679 lbs; massive Brembo steel brakes; wind-tunnel tested aerodynamic body panels and an equally massive carbon-fiber rear wing, the 458 GT3 was the weapon of choice to compete and win in multiple international series and championships. In the 2011-2015 seasons 458 GT3s competed in the European Le Mans Series; the Pirelli World Challenge; both the Blancpain Sprint Series and the Blancpain Endurance Series; the International GT Open; the Asian GT3 Championship; the Asian Le Mans Series; the GTSprint and Supercar Challenge and many other national GT3 Championships including the British GT, the Italian GT, the French GT, the Australian GT Championship and more.

458 GT3 s/n 3256 was first raced in the 2011 British GT Championship by CRS Racing before being sold to Australia in October 2011 where, on 04 Dec., 2011 Ferrari 458 GT3 s/n 3256 set a new lap record of 2.04.9560 at Mount Panorama, Bathurst, Australia driven by Allan Simonsen.

In the 2012 Australian GT Championship 458 GT3 s/n 3256 was successfully campaigned by its owner, Nick O′Halloran and Allan Simonsen before sitting out the 2013 Championship. In 2014 s/n 3256 was campaigned by Adrian Dietz, Josh Hunt and Cameron McConville while in 2015 s/n 3256 was campaigned by Adrian Dietz, Cameron McConville and Andrew Jones. At the end of the 2015 season 458 GT3 s/n 3256 was updated to the 2014-2015 specs with full carbon fiber front body kit; an adjustable blade front/rear roll bar kit; larger 390mm front brake rotors; caliper spacers for the rotor upgrade; a reinforced steering arm kit; drive peg cone extensions for quicker wheel changes during pitstop and rounded 2015 spec front lower brake ducts for improved cooling. Also has a driver adjustable brake balance which is non-standard on 458s. All update parts were supplied by Kessel Racing, the total cost of the parts alone was 77,817.51 €uro. 458 GT3 s/n 3256 also had the engine freshen up by Michelotto at a cost of 34,563.44 €uro. We have both invoices on file, e-mail us for copies.

The 458 is a mechanical grip and straight-line speed race car with no lack of power and so communicates handling feedback to the driver; as opposed to the latest 488 GT3, which is an aero-car which trades off mechanical grip for downforce and so is a much more nervous race car, requiring a higher level of driver commitment. Thanks to 18 × 12.5-inch front and 19 × 13-inch rear wheels with 300/660/18-inch Dunlop front tires and 310/710/19-inch Dunlop rear tires the mechanical grip is awesome. Six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo calipers on massive steel discs haul the 458 GT3 down from speed and the bullet-proof Hewland six-speed sequential paddle-shifted gearbox puts the 562 HP to the ground. 458 GT3 s/n 3256 is fitted with the lastest evolution body kit from Kessel Racing plus a fresh engine from Michelotto and so is ready to go. The pumped wheel arches, plexi-side windows, numerous air vents and wicked aero package complete with super-low front splitter make this 458 GT3 a true visual feast.

As state-of-the-art modern race cars the 458 GT3s are both blindingly fast yet very civilized to drive thanks to power steering and cockpit air condition. The NASCAR style roll cage, halo driver’s seat and driver containment nets on both sides make it a safe and user-friendly track day car and a second seat can be added to terrorize your passenger! 458 GT3 s/n 3256 is race-prepared and ready to go, allowing the skilled driver to offer very fast rides at private or Ferrari club track days, and at half the cost of its new price, 458 GT3 s/n 3256 is a user-friendly-priced addition to a modern Ferrari collection. Fully-serviced, needs nothing but a new home, and comes with two spare sets of wheels and tires. Seriously for sale and priced to sell at $289,500, or best offer.
