Ferrari Continues to Improve on Perfection with the 458 Speciale

Ferrari 458 EspecialThe design department at the prancing horse is committed to tirelessly working on improving a brand that already is the pinnacle of perfection. This time Ferrari has focused their efforts on a special edition (hence the name Speciale) of the 458 Italia.

Improvements were made to the Speciale vs. the “conventional” model (like anything at Ferrari is conventional) by focusing on the three most important factors of a supercar: power, grip, and aerodynamics. Performance was added to this 4.5L V-8, raising the horsepower to 605, while keeping the torque steady at 398. This works out to be 133 horsepower per liter, making the Speciale the highest-output naturally aspirated V-8 Ferrari ever made. The 458 Speciale can launch from 0-60 in 3 seconds flat! Best-of-all, Ferrari says that even with improved performance, the 458 Speciale consumes less fuel than the 458 Italia.

Among the technological improvements that have increased the grip of the 458 Speciale, are changes to the algorithm of the Side Slip Angle Control system (SSC). This function’s purpose is to constantly analyze in real time, the vehicle’s lateral slip and compare it to the computer’s “ideal” values. This allows the SSC to split the torque between the rear wheels, enhancing the ability of the Speciale to take turns faster without sacrificing control. This is achieved through integration of the electronic differential and the vehicle’s traction control system.
