Ferrari announced earlier this year during the unveiling of the Ferrari 458 Speciale at the Frankfurt Motor Show that they believe the 458 Speciale to be “more fun than the Ferrari F40.” Even without seeing one in action, everyone from around the world was eager to see what the new 458 Speciale could do.
British racing magazine Autocar got the opportunity to take the Ferrari 458 Speciale out on the track. Steve Sutcliffe was the lucky man who got to find out if the Ferrari 458 Speciale lived up to all the hype. During the video, Steve makes specific reference to the upgraded gearbox that allows 44% faster downshifts. He is also very impressed with the LaFerrari-style brakes and the new traction control system that allows the driver the ability to slide without spinning.
The 458 Speciale includes the same 4.5-liter V-8 engine that is found in the stock 458 Italia; the engine has been tweaked to produce 596 horsepower and 398 lb-feet of torque. This results in the Ferrari 458 Speciale having 34 more horsepower that the standard 458 Italia, making the 458 Speciale the most powerful naturally aspirated V-8 ever built by Ferrari. The 596 horsepower engine allows the 458 Speciale to achieve 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph.
