Report: Ferrari’s 458 Speciale sells out fast

In the peak of the bland, ranch-style-housed, suburban, 1950s, Buick offered several trim levels: the Roadmaster, the Century, and the Special. Prosaic is the word that comes to mind for the former (the Special was the cheap one, for what it’s worth), but Ferrari is having none of this. After naming one of their spiciest cars ever “LaFerrari”, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the capsaicin-saturated 458 is named the “Speciale”.

It’s been a long time coming, but Ferrari released information earlier this month on the hot version of their 458 coupe; naturally before the list price has been revealed on US shores, the car is sold out. The original 458 is known for its famously fiery wheel arch linings, aerodynamically clever and downforce-happy Pininfarina shape, a 3.3-second 0-62 time, and the highest torque output per liter in a street legal car.

The Speciale bests that output figure with 132 horsepower per liter, making a total of 600 bhp at 9,000 rpm in a 2843-lb car.
