Ferrari 458 Speciale promo – behind the scenes

Last month, Ferrari released a promotional video for the Ferrari 458 Speciale; a stripped back, lightweight model that is able to propel from 0-100km/h in just 3.0 seconds. Just released, this new behind the scenes video gives us some insight into some of the processes involved in shooting the promo clip.

The Speciale boasts 445kW from its naturally-aspirated 4.5-litre V8 (up 20kW over the standard 458) and is capable of lapping Ferrari’s Fiorano circuit in 1:23.50. To give you an idea how fast that is, a Ferrari Enzo does it in 1:24.90.
