Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: Ferrari 458 Speciale

The hardcore version of the Ferrari 458 Italia, the new 458 Speciale, has just made its public debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Initial rumors were saying that Ferrari will develop a Scuderia version of the 458 Italia but it seems that the Maranello based automaker has changed its mind when it comes to the name and the new supercar will be known as the Ferrari 458 Speciale. The model in question is actually the spiritual successor of the F430 Scuderia and the 360 Challenge, which came before that, and it’s no wonder if this will soon become a best seller within the company.

The Ferrari 458 Speciale is gaining the Side Slip Angle Control system which is constantly analyzing the slip angle, comparing it to a target value based on grip levels, speed and other metrics, optimizing the torque distribution between the two wheels, by braking, making the supercar easier to handle. Power to the 458 Speciale is being provided by the 4.5 liter engine from the 458 Italia, which is now producing a total output of 597 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque. The electronic stability systems have been recalibrated and the weight has been reduced. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 3.0 seconds. The 458 Speciale is the third fastest road-going Ferrari on the Fiorano, after the LaFerrari and the F12 Berlinetta.
