The 458 Speciale is the car that will stop your heart and then kickstart it again, all in a span of a sprint to the next red light. It will sing you to sleep every night with its rapturous exhaust note, it will embrace you firmly in its carbon fiber seats and never let you go. The Speciale is special in every sense of the word; it tops the Italia by reducing weight, increasing output, enhancing handling, and providing an epic driving experience. At a glance you will recognize the telltale striping of its predecessors the 360 Challenge Stradale and 430 Scuderia. Up close you will note subtle body flourishes that aid aerodynamics. Yes, the Speciale is stripped down, but what remains is a tantalizing package that represents the one of the purest driver-focused cars ever built.
