The Ferrari 458 Speciale takes what is already one of the most extreme road cars and turns it up a notch further. In the spirit of the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale and 430 Scuderia, the Speciale took the 458 into new, more hardcore territory.
The 458 Speciale was the last naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari and the engine was at its peak in terms of evolution – the 4.5-litre V8 produces 597bhp at 9000rpm, its 133bhp-per-litre made possible by a staggering 14:1 compression ratio. This greater output is pushing 90kg less too, thanks to a carbonfibre underbody, thinner glass for windscreen and side windows, a Lexan engine cover, new and lighter ceramic brakes, forged wheels and an interior of delicious minimalism.
There are also magnetic dampers, stiffer springs and anti-roll bars, active aero and high silicon content ceramic discs… no wonder Ferrari said this car isn’t a ‘version’ of the 458 Italia, but a whole new car.
What’s it like to drive?
The firm ride has no hint of harshness. It’s wedded beautifully to an accurate steering system, consistent and responsive brakes and a sweet brutality from the twin-clutch gearbox. The Speciale isn’t just stiffer, faster, louder than a 458 Italia, it’s just beautifully wrought, cohesive and – no question – it feels more serious, more focused and just plain better.
Braking late into a corner is made slightly more brutal thanks to the fast rev-match on downshifts, each shift bringing a jolt as the gears hit home. It feels like the shifts are completed with no margin at all. If the clutch closed a millisecond sooner the rear wheels would lock. There is no margin, no slack anywhere in this car.
Side Slip angle Control (SSC) system allows drivers of all skill levels to explore the depth of the Speciale’s ability with as little electronic intervention as possible, but still with a degree of assistance should they overstep the mark.
This is a seriously rapid car. The engine is remarkable, and the way it melds thick, instant torque with that explosive top-end delivery is quite breathtaking.
