The Ferrari 458 Speciale has been apparently sold out for its first year, as the supercar turns out to be more popular than the regular 458 Italia.
The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet, but it seems that Ferrari is doing well these days after managing to find owners for the entire 499-unit production of the LaFerrari hybrid supercar and also for the successor of the 360 Challenge and F430 Scuderia, the Ferrari 458 Speciale. The model in question has been officially presented to the public back in September, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Prices for the 458 Speciale stand at approximately 300,000 USD, which is a quarter more than the regular 458 Italia.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale is coming with the so-called Slip Angle Control system, which is constantly analyzing the slip angle and it’s optimizing the torque distribution between the two rear wheels, by comparing it to some target values. Power to the new Italian supercar is being provided by the same 4.5 liter V8 engine, which is now producing a total output of 597 HP and it has a peak torque of 398 lb-ft. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes just 3.0 seconds.
