But it is not here to stay, unfortunately, as it only exists in the virtual world at this time.
The last “hurrah” of the Ferrari 458 was the Speciale range-topping limited version which was introduced, as the Aperta (Spider) just a few months before the supercar left the assembly line in order to make room for its successor, the 488 GTB. But what if Ferrari will decide to offer a Speciale version of the new 488 GTB? Well, then chances are the vehicle in question will be looking like the model in the images posted below.
The numerous visual and aerodynamic modifications have been made to this particular ride and we can notice the more prominent boot lid spoiler, the different rear bumper, the modified rear diffuser, the different exhaust layout and several other goodies. The chances are quite appealing and, if the carmaker decides to give it a go, they will be helping the supercar become more aerodynamic than the standard one and it will also be easily differentiated from the regular versions of the 488. However, don’t expect such a variant of the supercar anytime soon because these photos are nothing more than simple renderings, which have been put together by emilano.com. As you probably already know by now, the 488 GTB has dropped the 4.5L naturally aspirated V8 engine from the 458 for the 3.9 liter twin turbo V8, which is capable of putting down 661 HP (493 kW) and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque. This is basically more than what the 458 Speciale has to offer.
