Something Special: Ferrari 458 Speciale

February 15 2014

At the Frankfurt Motor Show in a few weeks, Ferrari will showoff a very special car. No it's not the LaFerrari or the F12, it's a special race-bred Ferrari 458 called the 458 Speciale.

What makes this car so special is that it boasts 596 horsepower from the same 4.5L V8 found in the standard car. This makes it the "most powerful V8 car" Ferrari has ever made. Even more remarkable is that it can go from 0 - 100km/h in 3 seconds and to 200km/h in just 9.1 seconds. Furthermore, the car is said to have set a lap around Fiorano in 1:23.5, making it half a second behind the F12 Berlinetta.

The pricing has not been revealed yet, but expect to pay way above $300,000 for this special car.
