The features and components of the Ferrari 458 Speciale
The vehicle will indeed be a very special model as it has been confirmed that only a total of 499 units will be produced for world wide sale. There have been many variations of the 458 over the years since the very first was developed in 2009. The most famous being the Coupe version.

This allows the car to deliver on an output of 597 brake horse power which combined with the seven speed, twin clutch automatic transmission sees the vehicle make that famous leap from 0 to 62 miles per hour in a very quick three seconds flat out. A total of six air vents help to keep the vehicle running over smoothly and a retractable aluminium roof helps produce a much more lightweight driving experience compared to other 458 models to go on sale since 2010.
The image of the car that has been leaked today shows the vehicle in a Yellow paint scheme and also shows of Blue and White stripes and five spoke forged wheels too. A fully leather Black and Yellow interior has been shown by the leaked images as has the addition of the new flat bottomed steering wheel. Some of the interior is also made out of a Blue carbon fibre trim which gives the car even more of a sportier look and feel to it. Thanks to these brand new alterations to the Speciale A which take effect, we can easily see the Speciale maintaining some past rivalries with other sports car manufacturers such as the Mclaren brand and Lamborghini.
