No Ferrari 458 Speciale For You!


For this year at least.

Only a few days ago it was announced the entire 499-unit production run of the Ferrari LaFerrari was sold out. Today comes word that the hardcore track going 458 Speciale has also been bought up by eager buyers. Unlike the LaFerrari, however, the 458 Speciale will return next year; it’s only this year’s allocation that’s been sold. Ferrari has yet to officially confirm this, but no one should be in the least bit surprised. After all, the 458 Speciale is supposedly faster than the Enzo and the 599 GTO around Ferrari’s own Fiorano test track by at least 1.5 seconds.

Compared to the "base" 458 Italia, Ferrari made a number of aerodynamic improvements as well as shaving off weight. The result is one wicked fast mid-engined Ferrari that even makes its 430 Scuderia seem somewhat ancient in terms of performance numbers. Official pricing hasn’t been revealed, but it'll certainly cost more than the $233,000 base Italia, and somewhere in the region of $300,000.
