Much like the far more common Porsche GT3 Cup cars, Ferrari Challenge cars are more or less the factory cars tweaked to the max at the factory providing car owners and drivers an ultra reliable race car that is pretty damn quick at the same time. Since these cars are developed by the engineers and techs at the Ferrari factory, these are proper race cars built around the factory engine, drivetrain, chassis, and body. The Challenge cars are basically turn key race cars, but you’ll need a good team and driver to make these the cars faster than the next guy’s of course.

Modifications are severely restricted to eliminate the chances of using a ton of money building a faster car. Instead you can use a ton of money to hire the best team of engineers, mechanics, and techs! But even then, there aren’t many changes a bad ass engineer could execute. There are a few things that can be changed such as brake pad compounds, suspension alignment, and that’s more or less it. I don’t think they even change springs. Ferrari Challenge is a spec series where all teams must use the same tires, brakes, fluids, engines, etc. They playing field is pretty much as level as can be.
