The ultimate Ferrari centerpiece: 458 Speciale
|   Thursday, August 22, 2013
We have just been teased with another short video showing the latest Ferrari 458 Speciale which is finally going to be presented at the Frankfurt motor show. This model is the utmost variant of Ferrari 458 Italia which features a lot of incredible changes which will also be included on all of the upcoming Ferrari models.
Everyone is eager to welcome Ferrari 458 Speciale at the Frankfurt motor show in September as the company has also stated that the new model is "a completely new, uncompromising, streamlined sports car concept".
Even more, we are confident that the car will be just as incredible as it looks and sounds in the teasing video.

Known to the public as a new and improved vehicle that includes features from 430 Scuderia and 360 Challenge Stradale, the new model will bring a lot more power but in a less weight and more aerodynamic version. The engine version is the same 4.5 liter V8 but it has been increased with 35bhp, from 562bhp to 597bhp. It seems that it also features the highest output for any road car – 133bhp per liter. It is promised that it will be able to reach up to 62mph in just 3.4 seconds and that it can definitely finish the Fiorano test circuit in 1 min 23.5 seconds which is actually a record if we think of the previous performance of Enzo and F12 Berlinetta.

The Ferrari 458 Speciale will use an electronic system, Slide Slip Angle Control, which will be able to examine the slip angle and amend the torque in such a way as to evenly distribute it between the two wheels. For even a greater performance, Speciale 458 will be using a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.
The way this vehicle achieved this amazing light weight – just 1,290 kg – has not been revealed by the company. It was stated instead that the Ferrari made every single effort to reduce the total weight when designing this new model by introducing super light wheels and carbon panels.

The look of the Ferrari 458 Speciale is indeed…special. It features smooth surface swaps precisely to complete the aerodynamic look and the novelty consists of the absolutely new racing stripes which are, surprisingly enough, hand painted. Looking at the front part of the care, there are two, new large air intakes bounded by some air curtains which will handle the air flow that will go over the front wheels. For the same effect on the back, there were added some wings on the side sills. By using this new aerodynamics technology, Ferrari proudly stated that optimal, amazing connection was established between the downforce and drag in the car production history.

We are well aware of the fact that Ferrari did a great job and has just designed an incredible car which will offer a marvelous driving experience, yet, we all expect the pricing range. Although, nothing was made public so far, we can still assume that the Ferrari 458 Speciale will probably cost more than £178,526 – if looking at the previous price figures for Ferrari F430 and Ferrari 430 Scuderia.
