V8 back in the saddle: Ferrari 458 Speciale

Heartbeat

V8 back in the saddle Ferrari 458 Speciale (1)

Its a first commanding Ferrari V8 road-ok naturally aspirated engine ever built in Maranello. Made its debut at 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show this Ferrari V8 makes its home on the 458 Speciale putting out 597 bhp at 9000 rpm with a torque of 540 Nm at 6000 rpm.

When electronic things come to mind, 458 Speciale took first step with Side Slip Angle Control (SSC) and an enhanced F1 transmission. New Extreme Design calipers, HT2 discs with a higher percentage of silicon, and smaller front HY material pads result in eight per cent shorter stopping distances than the 458 Italia and more consistent performance under severe use.
