Ferrari 458 Speciale already sold for the first year of production

Article by Christian A., on December 11, 2013

If you were planning to buy your 458 Speciale this year, you’d better forget it as Ferrari already sold the first year of production. Apparently, the Ferrari 458 Speciale was an instant hit and people are interested in buying these limited edition models because they actually invest their money. For those who don’t know, the rear-wheel drive 458 Speciale is the spiritual successor to the F430 Scuderia and the 360 Challenge Stradale.

It is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine developing a whooping 605 hp @ 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm. With these numbers, the 458 Speciale hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.1 seconds and has a top speed of over 300 km/h or 186 mph.

On the Fiorano race track owned by Ferrari, the 458 Speciale is actually quicker than the V12-powered Enzo supercar.

The 458 Speciale lapped the Fiorano test track in 1:23.5, with 1.5 seconds quicker than the Enzo. In terms of design, the 458 Speciale comes with an impressive bodykit, new Brembo brakes and the exclusive Side Slip Angle Control system.
