The 458 Speciale was introduced in 2013 as the high-performance version of Ferrari’s mid-engined 458, weighing almost 200 pounds less than the standard model and powered by a more powerful version of the naturally-aspirated F136 F V8 producing 597 HP. It was also equipped with unique forged wheels, active aerodynamics, and the Slip Slide Control system. This 2014 example was ordered in Rosso Corsa with a Blu Nart and Bianco livery stripe over a two-tone Rosso FX fabric and Blu Scuro Alcantara leather interior with carbon fiber trim. Options include Advanced Frontlighting System (AFS) LED headlamps, yellow brake calipers, Scuderia fender shields, carbon fiber front air vents, side nolders, engine covers, fuel cap, and center caps, black titanium sport exhaust pipes, front and rear parking sensors, the Ferrari Telemetry system, power mirrors, a radio navigation system with Bluetooth, a front suspension lifter, carbon fiber racing seats, and more. Modifications include Capristo carbon fiber mirror housings and Novitec lowering springs. It was sold new at Ferrari of Palm Beach, Florida in 2014 before being relocated to California in 2015 and acquired by the seller in 2021. Remaining under warranty with a recent inspection performed, this Ferrari 458 Speciale is now being offered at auction by the seller located in California with approximately 9k miles on the odometer.
The exterior is finished in the classic Ferrari shade of Rosso Corsa (322) with an optional Blu Nart (523) and Bianco (100) livery stripe. Exterior options include carbon fiber front vents, side nolders, engine covers, and a carbon fiber fuel cap, AFS LED headlights with self-leveling, Scuderia fender shields, yellow brake calipers, titanium exhaust pipes in black, and power side mirrors. A set of Capristo carbon fiber mirrors were fitted under previous ownership. The seller reports very minor rock chips on the front bumper, hood, side rocker vents, and rear wheel wells, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The model-specific 20” forged wheels wear Ferrari-branded carbon fiber center caps and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires displaying 2015 date codes in the front and 2016 date codes in the rear. The seller adds an additional unused set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires will accompany the sale.
The interior features large-sized Sabelt carbon fiber racing seats upholstered in Blu Scuro Alcantara, with Rosso FX fabric centers, Rosso contrast stitching, Rosso safety belts, and Rosso embroidered Cavallino emblems in the headrests. Blu Scuro Alcantara with Rosso contrast stitching covers the upper dashboard, A-pillars and windscreen surround, passenger dashboard pads, the upper door panels, the wheel wells, the headliner, the door pulls, and the rear bulkhead, contrasted with a Rosso Alcantara center console. Carbon fiber trim can be seen on the door panels, door sill plates, center console, air vents, and the driver’s zone. The Blu Scuro leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel is trimmed with carbon fiber, and features an LED tachometer, carbon fiber shift paddles, Rosso inner stitching, a red ignition button, and the manettino switch for selecting driving modes. Additional optional equipment includes front and rear parking sensors, the Ferrari Telemetry system with an inner camera kit, an integrated audio system with GPS navigation and Bluetooth, and cruise control.
Under the optional carbon fiber engine covers, The 458 Speciale is powered by the same naturally-aspirated V8 as the standard 458 Italia but with a power increase resulting in 597 HP and 398 lb.-ft of torque thanks to upgraded engine internals. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission with an electronically-controlled rear differential (E-Diff) and traction control (F1-Trac). Acceleration from 0-60 MPH occurs in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of over 200 MPH. Performance features include active aerodynamics, the Slip Slide Angle Control system, carbon-ceramic brakes, and revised magnetorheological suspension with new software and twin-solenoid Frequency-Shaped SCM-E dampers. A set of Novitec lowering springs were added by the previous owner. The CARFAX report shows a history of maintenance since new, and the seller reports the engine “wrench” light is illuminated, though a recent service was performed by Exotic Specialty Services of Huntington Beach, California, and no faults were found.
This sale will include 2 keys, owner’s manuals, a car cover, a battery charger, and an unused set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.
