Extreme Technology for an Uncompromising Ferrari 458 Speciale

The 458 Speciale features front and rear movable aerodynamics which balance 
downforce and cut drag, thus helping make the 458 Speciale the most 
aerodynamically efficient range production car in Ferrari history (E Index of 1.5).
The 458 Speciale features front and rear movable aerodynamics which balance downforce and cut drag, thus helping make the 458 Speciale the most aerodynamically efficient range production car in Ferrari history (E Index of 1.5).

The 2014 458 Speciale includes powertrain, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics advances that transform the already exceptional 458 Italia into a car genuinely worthy of the "special" moniker. The result is a completely new, uncompromising, streamlined sports car.

Many of the sophisticated solutions being applied for the very first time to an in-range car in the Ferrari 458 Speciale, including its advanced active aerodynamics, will become a standard feature of all new Ferraris in the future.

Flanked in the Maranello marque's range by the multi-award-winning 458 Italia and 458 Spider, the new mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta was designed to boost both performance and driving emotion to unprecedented levels, yet simultaneously guarantee smooth, effortless control in all kinds of situations.

The 458 Speciale has received its public world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt International Motor Show.

Most Powerful Naturally-Aspirated Ferrari V8

Having lavished meticulous attention on the power unit that was named "Best Performance Engine" at the International Engine of the Year Awards for two consecutive years, Ferrari has now built its most powerful naturally aspirated V8 ever (597 hp) with an extraordinary specific power output of 135 hp/l , the highest ever achieved by a road-going naturally aspirated engine.

Thanks to an equally exceptional weight/power ratio of just 2.13 kg/hp, the 458 Speciale can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds (0-124 mph in 9.1 seconds) and also clocked a lap time of just 1 minute and 23.5 seconds at the Fiorano Circuit.

The 458 Speciale's closest competitors are the McLaren 650S, Porsche 911 GT3, Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 and the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S.
