The Ferrari 458 Speciale was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013 and is a track focused edition of the Ferrari 458 Italia. It features Ferrari’s highest performance naturally aspirated V8 engine which produces 605 PS and 540 Nm torque. The F1 inspired design and technology has earnt the Speciale various awards such as: International performance engine of the year and has been described by Autocar as ‘possibly the most exciting and uncompromising car in the world’ - and we agree!
Ferrari claimed the purpose of the 458 Speciale was to employ ‘extreme technology to evoke extreme emotion’. This is obvious through the variety of aerodynamic features such as the two deep outlets in the front bonnet which channel away air exiting the radiator and the redesigned composite bumpers which allow for greater air intake. There is also pedigree in the design as well function such as the three louvers to the side of the headlight assemblies which are reminiscent of the iconic 250 GTO and the F40. Like the exterior, the cockpit is race-inspired with lightweight and exclusive materials surrounding the driver zone such as alcantara and carbon fibre.
This particular RHD UK supplied example is finished in Bianco Avus with the contrasting Nero coloured roof option. The Nero continues in the interior combined with the Rosso which matches the 20 inch forged dark painted rims and red brake calipers. A host of carbon fibre options have been fitted from factory such as: carbon fibre front flaps, carbon fibre front air vents, carbon fibre fuel cap, carbon fibre side nozzles, carbon fibre rear diffuser and carbon fibre racing seats. This particular example also possesses a titanium sports exhaust and the number plate ‘F458 GAS’. The list price for the Speciale was £208,050 and values have never dropped below this figure. In fact, the demand for the Speciale is so great due it being the last naturally aspirated V8 engine Ferrari will ever produce, values are likely to soar in the future. There is no doubt that this modern classic will act as both an investment opportunity and an unparalleled driving experience.
