Ferrari 458 Speciale: Ultimate Sports Car?

Just how speciale is the track-focused 458?

Forget the fact the Ferrari 458 Speciale has the highest horsepower per liter of any naturally-aspirated car ever made for a minute, and focus on the fact Ferrari has tightened up the chassis, added grip, and stripped off weight from a car that was already one of the best on the market. Autocar wanted to see just how much of an improvement the Speciale is over the stock 458 and to investigate just how it sizes up to its spiritual successor, the 430 Scuderia.

After flogging it around a race track for a few hours, the results become quite clear.
