The Italian exotic supercar maker has revealed another one of its trademark one-off models, the 458 MM Speciale penned by the Ferrari Styling Centre.
The Ferrari that was the bespoke MM comes as a differentiation with a different aluminum body and unique bumpers constructed out of carbon fiber. Other highlights include the addition by the engineers of a new side air scoop as part of the car’s new and more elaborate aerodynamic package. The latter also has more steeply inclined coolant radiators which are closer to each other compared to the usual 458 Speciale. The car’s side profile also has different nuances, due to the increasingly sloped roofline and the more prominent rake of the rear.
With the modified rear the engine bay cooling has been affected but Ferrari worked that out with the new side intakes which bring extra cooling for the naturally-aspirated 4.5-liter V8 unit. The latter still packs the 605 horsepower (445 kilowatts) and 399 pound-feet (540 newton meters) of torque – linked to a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. The 458 MM Speciale also comes with different headlights and taillights, while the alloy wheels are also unique for this bespoke model. The inside has been adorned with satin white accents, an upgraded sound system, tailor-made trim, and Cioccolato leather upholstery complete with white stitching. The lucky owner is an “enthusiastic British owner” and we can be sure Ferrari asked a hefty premium for these modifications.
