The Ferrari 458, as acclaimed by a certain Top Gear host as, “The best mid-engined super car, ever” has just kicked it up a notch. As most followers of automobiles know once Ferrari or Lamborghini or any high-end super car manufacturer comes out with a take your breath away, take 3 steps back to take it all in, kind of orgasmic screaming at the top of your lungs type car; you must wait until the stripped down track attack car arrives to see car engineers bat shit crazy magic. I present to you the Ferrari 458 Speciale.
605 HP @ 9000 RPM
398 LB-FT @ 6000 RPM
2843 LBS. (90 LBS lighter)
New aero package reducing drag to 1.5 coefficient
0-62 in 3.2 sec. and 0-124 in 9.1 sec.
Plus the car doesn’t look half bad either, it will be interesting to see how the new aero package looks in comparison to the original 458. No doubt this car will make a big splash at the 65th Frankfurt Motor Show September 12-22.
