ERRARI 458 SPECIALE 4.5 COUPE
The 458 Speciale is Ferrari’s most high performance V8 ever. It’s not just a version of the already formidable 458 Italia – it’s a whole new car.
The innovations span the entire car and include both Ferrari patents and world firsts. The extraordinary 458 Speciale’s mid-rear 4.5 litre V8 punches out 597bhp at 9000 rpm making it the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 ever built at Maranello. Even more impressive, its specific power output of 133bhp per litre is a world record for a naturally aspirated road-going engine. Other mind-blowing statistics include a 0-62mph time of 3.0secs, a top speed of 202mph and a record 1min 23.5sec lap time at Fiorano.
The Speciale’s huge amount of power is pushing 90kg less than the 458 Italia too thanks to a carbon fibre underbody, thinner windscreen and side window glass, a carbon fibre engine cover, new and lighter carbon ceramic brakes, forged wheels and a deliciously minimalistic interior. In addition, there are also magnetic dampers, stiffer springs and anti-roll bars. The time it takes the engine speed to match the gear ratio on downshifts has been cut by 44% and the Speciale features active aero which reduces drag as speed increases.
Despite all this, what’s really remarkable is just how easy it is for mere mortals to tap into that performance. Ferrari have come up with SSC or side slip angle control, essentially a clever algorithm that compares the actual slip angle of the car with a target figure and then adjusts the locking action of the rear differential to suit. SSC positively encourages you to drive up to, and beyond, the tyres’ limits.
So, we are proud to present for sale this incredible 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale 4.5 Coupe which has had only two former keepers, covered only 3,700 miles and is protected under the extended Ferrari Warranty until 31st March 2019 and under the Ferrari 7 Year Maintenance Service Pack until 31st March 2022.
The exterior is finished in the very desirable Rosso Corsa with the historic NART central stripe in Nero Stellato all protected with a full Paint Protection Film (PPF). This is complemented by the 20-inch 5-spoke Alloy Wheels in Grey with Brake Calipers in Rosso Corsa. It also features the optional Carbon Fibre Engine Cover, Suspension Lifter, Titanium Exhaust Pipes, Scuderia Ferrari Shields, Parking Camera and Front and Rear Parking Sensors.
The cockpit has a distinctly racing-inspired atmosphere dominated by lightweight alcantara and carbon fibre, yet it still exudes the craftsmanship and sophistication typical of all Ferrari interiors, thanks to hand-stitching, aluminium tread plates and fluidly sculpted door panels. The cockpit’s ergonomic layout is boosted too by the now-iconic bridge, a carbon-fibre wing that extends over the central tunnel section, putting the F1 gearbox controls at an ideal angle to the driver.
It is finished in Alcantara Nera and Tessuto Rosso with contrasting stitching in Rosso, Wheel Arches and Central Tunnel in Alcantera Nera and Floor Mats with “458 Speciale” Logo. The Large Sedili Taglia seats have carbon fibre shells, ergonomic side bolstering, driver seat adjustment device and, due to alcantara-trimmed shoulder-rests, excellent grip. The backrests and seats are padded with a breathable 3D fabric for superb air circulation and comfort.
The specification of this 458 Speciale is outstanding with plenty of options in addition to the already phenomenal list of standard equipment. Highlights include Cruise Control, Adaptive Front-lighting System, Rev Counter in Yellow, Integrated Audio System, Radio Navigation System and Bluetooth, Interior and Exterior Electrochromic Mirrors and NavTrak Antitheft System.
The stunning looks and phenomenal performance of this 458 Speciale take the concept of a supercar to a whole new level. It can’t be beaten for sheer adrenaline and driver involvement and is sure to prove a wise investment for the future too. And, as you would expect from a Premier GT car, it is in immaculate condition inside and out.
