The impressive Ferrari 458 Speciale has been sold out for the first year, despite its starting price, which can be named anything but cheap.
Ferrari is enjoying a wave of success recently and after pulling the wraps off the F12 Berlinetta, the 599 GTB’s successor, and creating its first ever hybrid supercar, the LaFerrari, time has come for the 360 Challenge and the F430 Scuderia to get a successor too, in the shape of the 458 Speciale. The new Italian supercar has been so well received that the entire production for the first year has been completely sold out, so if you want one for yourself, you’re in for a big wait.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale has been officially presented to the public, for the first time, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, back in September. The model in question is coming with the Slip Angle Control system, which can optimize the torque distribution between the rear wheels by constantly analyzing the slip angle. Power to the new supercar is being provided by a 4.5 liter V8, which is generating 597 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque. The 458 Speciale can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds.
