Ferrari reveals extra ‘speciale’ 458
Ferrari revealed this creamy white riff on the 458 on Tuesday. But don’t get too excited: It’s a one-off creation built specifically for a British owner.
Called the 458 MM Speciale, the supercar debuted at Fiorano, where Ferrari chief test driver Dario Benuzzi and the unnamed owner turned laps. The 458 MM Speciale is based on the458 Speciale and uses its natural aspirated V8 paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
This one-off is painted a shade of white called Bianco Italia. The Italian flag colors are used for stripes that run down the center of the car. Designed by the Ferrari Styling Center, the car has blacked-out A-pillars that create a visor look, updates to the aluminum bodywork, and carbon-fiber composite bumpers.
There is also a new side air scoop, new air intakes, and the radiators are mounted at different angles to aid cooling. There’s a tasteful spoiler in back, and the speedster rolls on eye-catching wheels with a custom cluster pattern.
Inside, the owner chose an upgraded audio system and Cioccolato leather with white stitching. The controls are accented with satin white rings.
