There's nothing quite like a Ferrari, and fans of the Italian exotics will tell you there are few Ferraris like the 2015 Ferrari 458. Already boasting a pedigree edge over rivals like the
Audi R8 V10 and
Lamborghini Huracan simply because of its breeding, it boasts a considerable performance advantage as well. Using its racing expertise, Ferrari has imbued the 458 Italia and 458 Spider with a 562-horsepower V8 teamed with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. It also boasts a design that not only looks breathtaking, but includes features like active winglets in front that deform at speed to improve downforce and aerodynamics. It's all managed by a race-inspired suspension that, with little modification, underpins the race-ready 458 Speciale models.
This is the last year for the Ferrari 458, as it will be replaced with the upgraded, turbocharged 488 next year. However, we're going to go out on a limb and suggest that Ferrari won't be offering year-end clearance sales on them.
Ferrari 458 Speciale joins the 2014 lineup. It is basically a lighter, quicker, better-handling and more powerful version of the Italia. Side Slip Control software makes the Speciale the best-handling Ferrari in the 458 stable.
