Of exemplary racing lineage, the 458 has multiple endurance victories around the globe and everything about this car shouts performance – sculpted to optimise aerodynamics the body features multiple features for airflow from adaptive intakes, vents, fins and large scoops channelling air to vital radiators and utilising it to increase down force and discarding anything that might slow it down.
A functional design masterpiece that combined with the ‘last of the line’ naturally aspirated V8 mid engine layout, a sensational open top experience and a limited production car Ferrari it will remain a firm favourite that will go down in history as one of Maranellos finest work.
The car is as you’d expect having covered just over 1,000 miles and wrapped in paint protection film from new, it is pristine, barely used and with not a mark to be found. The Nero Stellato stripe runs the length of the car spreading its wings out over the engine cover and deep into the rear spoiler, complimenting the black intake grates, trim and aerodynamic features fitted while contrasting beautifully with the deep and signature red Rosso Corsa paintwork.
There are many optional updates to be found on this 458 including the carbon front blades, carbon front flaps, carbon fibre side nolders and carbon wing mirrors.
Presented in excellent order, this cabin is wild to say the least. Two screens displaying live running characteristics, the familiar ‘manettino’ with traction, gearbox and engine map settings along with the extended carbon stalk that house auto, reverse and maximum attack launch mode make for a space odyssey-like setup.
The seats are finished in 3D alcantara fabric with yellow stitched horses proudly displaying on the headrests. These are wonderfully supportive with no cosmetic issues to report, whilst surrounding carbon trim on door cards, gearbox tunnel and foot well all retain deep lacquer with no scores or scratches. A stunning place to be, truly complimentary of the exterior, and an event in itself once installed in the driver’s seat even with the engine off.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
With the engine intake constructed out of beautifully weaved carbon fibre and proudly displaying its designation and Ferrari branding, this 4.5 litre is an absolute work of art and unique in both form and function. The numbers are breathtaking – 14:1 compression, 9000rpm limit, 600hp and only 3 seconds to 60mph. Crackling loudly into life, those unaware will jump at the sound – a sharp cacophony of unmistakable V8 that settles immediately into a purposeful idle all deliciously louder with the aluminium hard top folded away.
The 7 speed dual clutch transmission is stunningly fast defining the realms of what’s possible in gear change speed. The Speciale is the 4th car from Ferrari to have no manual gated option after the other greats, the Enzo, Stradale and Scuderia.
