Ferrari stands for unmatched driving experience. A Ferrari is never the fastest car when looking at pure specs, but can always deliver on a race-track and the feeling drivers get from sitting behind the wheel is alike nothing else. The 458 Speciale embodies that philosophy from top to bottom.

The legendary F136 4.5 L naturally-aspirated V8 in the Speciale is the epitome of what a sports engine should look, sound and feel like. Revving up to 9000 rpm it was awarded over 30 international awards – including “performance engine of the year” for 4 years in a row. Apart from the engine, the car won multiple awards such as a 5 Star rating by Autocar – a magazine that described the Speciale as “The most exciting and uncompromising car in the world.”

The 458 Speciale wins you over because it’s such a pure, uncorrupted driver’s car. It feels over-provisioned for sheer grip and agility, communicates effectively and challenges you to get on its level or find the limit of your own in the process. It’s sensational in its handling and extravagant in its commitment to the pursuit of speed and thrill.”

Autocar Magazin, 2015

No one knows what exactly makes these cars so special and so different in their driving experience. Of course, Ferrari always tries to bring Formula 1 technology and experience to the streets, but many other Manufacturers have a comparable amount of involvement in the racing world. And yet, when it comes to the pure sports-car feeling – only Ferrari manages to always conquer the test-drivers hearts, by delivering perfection on the track.
