Perfectly sculpted from layers of carbon fibre the intricate design on the 458 Speciale is a sight to behold, with its classic mid-engined proportions and stunning curves it presents with that classic Ferrari elegance whilst retaining a distinct sense of purpose thanks to a series of precision aerodynamic intakes and vents that embellish the gorgeous coachwork.
Rosso Dino was first introduced by Ferrari in the 1960s and then again in 2002 as part of Ferrari’s historical colour palette. Combined with the Pininfarina lines of the Speciale it is particularly striking in the flesh, with the solid finish presenting a clear orange hue that significantly differentiates from the traditional shade of red associated with the brand. Complimenting the colour scheme is a factory Grigio Corsa racing stripe, whilst lashings of carbon fibre at the front spoiler, engine bay and rear diffuser hint to the track focus of the Speciale and no doubt added to the high original order price.
Fully covered by PPF the car is impeccable, free from any stone chips the beautiful Rosso Dino paintwork shows with a deep and even shine throughout. It is thought to be just 1 of 2 finished in this historic colour in the UK.
Demonstrating the lightweight focus of the Speciale the cabin is a shrouded in carbon fibre, spreading to the sills, doors, dashboard, steering wheel, centre console and deeply bolstered bucket seats. Weight-saving doesn’t stop there, the lightweight alcantara and 3D perforated fabric making up most of the upholstery, whilst the floor remains free from carpets showing just the aluminium base plates.
Despite the minimal appointment of the interior the 458 still feels luxurious, with a carefully considered scheme of Grigio stitching and details contrasting the black alcantara whilst in-front of the driver a dual screen display provides live feedback from the car whilst also providing controls for the navigation and entertainment system.
Further luxuries come in the form of air conditioning, parking sensors and the all important front lift, although the fire extinguisher mounted in the footwell ensures the occupants never truly forget the nature and focus of the Speciales design brief.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Truly the last of its the kind the 458 Speciale features the final naturally aspirated V8 engine to be produced by Ferrari, and what an engine it is. Revving all the way to 9,500 rpm the 4.5L V8 produces 597bhp, managing 0-60mph in just 3 seconds thanks to the seamless 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Though what’s more impressive than the numbers is the sound; erupting into life the sound of Ferrai’s V8 is unmistakable, building from a crackle to a symphonious howl as the rev limit rapidly approaches. Peering through the rear glass screen this example looks more special than most, with the incredible V8 nestled in the full carbon engine bay, an optional extra costing almost £5k.
Mechanically this 458 Speciale is in excellent order, with less the 4,500 miles on the odometer the car has been serviced annually by Ferrari with 6 stamps in the original service book, its 7th to be completed on sale.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Weighing just 9.4kg the Speciale specific wheel provides a significant saving over those fitted to the standard car and look utterly superb, with their satin grey finish perfectly offsetting the rich Rosso Dino coachwork. Condition of the wheels is excellent all around, with matching Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2’s fitted at each corner.
Vast ceramic discs and grey calipers show through the fine spokes, providing strong and consistent braking on road and track.
