The brand new Ferrari 458 Speciale has been recently spotted on the streets, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
After it was officially unveiled just a few days ago, the brand new Ferrari 458 Speciale is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of some images. The photos posted below don’t represent a unit sold to an eccentric car collector or a prototype with no camouflage on its body, but actually the final production version being loaded onto a platform.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine, the same one used on the 458 Italia and 458 Spyder, which has been modified and it’s now producing a total output of 605 HP (445 kW) at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,000 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 3 seconds. The supercar is fitted with the Side Slip Angle Control (SSC) system which is analyzing the slip angle, comparing it to a target figure an optimizing the torque management though the traction control, distributing it between the two wheels. The 458 Speciale is 1.5 seconds faster than the 458 Italia on the Fiorano.
