Ferrari 458 Speciale Revealed

Ferrari continues to mine its engineering talents while entirely ignoring whichever department is responsible for naming its new cars, revealing the most powerful version of its 458 to date – the “Speciale”.

It’s “speciale” indeed, taking the already awesome mid-engined exotic to new heights, adding 35 more horsepower to the car’s already potent high-revving V8 engine to deliver a total of 605 hp (or 597 hp, depending on how you measure it). With Ferrari’s 458 cc engine already having won the title of “Best Performance Engine” at the International Engine of the Year Awards two years in a row, this new motor is certain to make it a three-peat. With 135 hp/liter it boasts the most horsepower per liter of any road going naturally aspirate engine ever made.

Ferrari claims a 0-62 mph time of just 3.0 seconds with a 9.1 second 0-124 mph (200 km) time of 9.1 seconds. The car also also clocked a lap time at the brand’s Fiorano Circuit of just 1:23.5.

I don't like the hood like that, I don't like the stripes, and those wheels look out of place. In the past I always enjoyed the lightened, stiffened, hopped up versions of F-cars as more than the originals(599fioriano>599gto/360>360cs/430.430scuderia). Here however, I can't do that. I just find this car horribly ugly, and the 458 is my favorite car at the moment.
