The Speciale is the successor to the old 430 Scuderia and the older 360 Challenge Stradale, showcasing lots of weight reduction (over 200kg), a keener suspension and chassis setup, and a more powerful engine compared with the regular 458.

In the engine compartment sits a 4.5-litre naturally aspirated V8 producing 445kW of power and 540Nm of torque (up 20kW). It’s able to propel the 458 from 0-100km/h in 3.0 seconds, and around Ferrari’s Fiorano test track in 1:23.5, which is quicker than a Ferrari Enzo (1:24.90).
