Unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Ferrari 458 Speciale is powered by a naturally aspirated, 4.5-liter, V-8 engine that delivers a total of 596 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 398 pound-feet of torque at 6,000 rpm. Thanks to the extra power, the new 458 Speciale features the most powerful naturally-aspirated V-8 engine in Ferrari’s history.
You can easily imagine that such an engine delivers an amazing sound, and this video gives us the chance to see the 458 Speciale revving its V-8 engine at Fiorano circuit. A nice bonus is that on top of hearing the engine, we also get to see the supercar in a different color than the one revealed in Frankfurt: blue with sky blue racing stripes. The white film was placed to protect the paint and not to camouflage the car.
The new 458 Speciale can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and goes up to a top speed of 202 mph. We are still waiting to learn its lap time around Fiorano.
