Ferrari 458 Speciale is a sell-out in the first year itself

Ferrari 458 Speciale is a sell-out in the first year itself

All units of the Ferrari 458 Speciale have been spoken for. At least for the first year. We saw it first at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, this car is completely track-ready.

This rear-wheel-drive 458 Speciale claims to be faster than the V12-powered Enzo. It follows in the footsteps of the 360 Challenge Stradale and the 430 Scuderia. The 458 Speciale is based on the 458 Italia but is lighter, more powerful and far more aerodynamically advanced.

Design-wise the 458 Speciale gets a few new bits and bobs too, including a restyled front apron, new side skits and a revised rear-end with larger diffuser and twin exhaust outlets in lieu of its donor car's three.

Its 4.5-litre V8 engine bangs out 596.75bhp at 9,000rpm (26.82bhp more than its donor car) and 540Nm at 6,000rpm. That’s enough to accelerate it to 100kmh in three seconds -- almost half a second quicker than the standard 458.

Coming to the cabin, there is a beautifully stitched leather-clad dash, a sports steering wheel and figure-hugging seats. Carbon fibre materials have been used everywhere to save weight and even the air vents look uber aerodynamic.

On the topic of aerodynamic improvements, Ferrari spent a lot of time and effort honing the 458 Speciale's form. It has even augmented the car with active aerodynamics, the first time Ferrari has incorporated this on a production car. This essentially involves a pair of moving flaps, front and rear, that adjust in angle electrically to increase downforce depending on road speed.

Though official pricing still hasn’t been announced for the 458 Speciale, it is expected to go for around USD300,000 (Rs 18,339,000) in the US. Regardless of the lack of an official price tag hasn’t stopped buyers from lining up for the special edition model.
