The 458 Speciale continued Ferrari’s tradition of developing even higherperforming variants of its sports cars, as with the 360 Challenge Stradale and F430 Scuderia. The Speciale could hit 60 mph in 3.0 seconds and lap Ferrari’s Fiorano 0.5 seconds faster than even the 599 GTO, courtesy of a 14:1 compression ratio, new pistons, higher-lift camshafts, and a low back-pressure exhaust. Power was raised to 597 hp at 9,000 rpm, endowing it at the time with more horsepower per liter than any other naturally aspirated, road-going engine in history.
Weight-saving measures shaved 200 pounds, and with active aerodynamics and a drag coefficient of .35, it was the most aerodynamic production Ferrari built to date.
This gorgeous example, which displayed just under 900 miles at the time of cataloguing, is finished in Bianco Avus (Avus White) with a Blu Nart racing stripe and features an Alcantara and 3-D fabric interior with blue seat inserts. Its extensive list of options includes 20" forged dark painted wheels, carbon fiber racing seats, radio-navigation system, parking sensors and camera, front suspension lift, telemetry kit, titanium exhaust pipes, and a host of interior and exterior items specified in carbon fiber and Alcantara. The car is additionally fitted with a high-end Audison sound system. This Speciale, with its stunning color combination, low miles, and extensive extra-cost options, rewards the Ferrari connoisseur with its combination of performance, innovation, and exclusivity.
