This Ferrari 458 Speciale is no longer available. Please contact us for any further information you may require.
As at its launch it was the fastest V8 supercar ever produced by Ferrari, the 458 Speciale really needs no introduction. The already spectacular 458 platform benefited from a huge host of alterations including increased power which equates to the most driver-focussed Ferrari V8 ever produced. The increased power means the 458's engine held a World Record for naturally aspirated output. The 458 Speciale's 605 bhp equates to 135hp/litre, a truly astonishing output. Perhaps not surprisingly, the 458 Speciale won the prestigious "2013 Supercar of the Year" award from Top Gear magazine and 2014 Evo Magazine "Car of the Year".
Autocar Magazine formed the following conclusion on testing the awe-inspiring Speciale: "The mid-engined Ferrari supercar has reached a turning point, it strikes us - and there may never be a better one for purist thrill-seekers than the one you see here. Replaced by the '458M' or 488GTB, for want of the official name: a mid-life refresh that introduced a new turbocharged engine- The Speciale is very much the last naturally-aspirated mid-engined Ferrari. The car to mark it could hardly be more aptly named or purposefully constructed." Cut from the same cloth as the legendary Challenge Stradale and Scuderia, the Speciale is the last instalment in this hugely collectable line of naturally aspirated V8 supercars.
Delivered new via Ferrari Dick Lovett Swindon in June 2015, this particular example is resplendent in Giallo Triplo Strato with a Nero stripe and roof over an unusual yet sought after Nero leather interior. It was ordered new with in excess of £83,000 worth of optional extras including:
Having been driven just 4,600 miles from new, the car has been well cared for since day one. Its service book shows that the car has been regularly serviced at Dick Lovett Swindon and will be serviced prior to sale. The car presents beautifully both inside and out, showing that it has been very well kept since day one. In addition to the car’s history file, manuals, tool kit, and car cover, it is accompanied by a two-piece luggage set in matching Nero leather with Giallo stitching.
Offered for sale from the collection of just the second owner from new, this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire surely one of the highest specification examples of the landmark 458 Speciale currently available.
