With its high-revving, 4.5-litre V8 engine delivering an absolutely brutal 597 hp, the Ferrari 458 Speciale certainly isn’t lacking in the noise department. That fact however, didn’t dissuade the owner of the following white 458 Speciale who had the Italian supercar fitted with a custom exhaust courtesy of GT Auto Concepts.
As a reminder, the Ferrari 458 Speciale features a modified variant of the regular 458 Italia’s 4.5-litre V8 engine. In Speciale guise, it delivers a total of 597 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque thus making it the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine ever produced by Ferrari. What’s more, Ferrari claims that thanks to it delivering 133hp per litre, it has the highest ever per litre output of a road-going naturally aspirated engine. Maximum power is achieved at 9000 rpm while max torque is reached at 6000 rpm.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale tips the scales at just 1290 kg and Ferrari consequently claims a sprint time to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds and the car can then hit 200 km/h in just 9.1 seconds. What’s more, Ferrari claims that the Ferrari 458 Speciale can sprint around the Fiorano test track in just 1:23.5 seconds thus making it 1.5 seconds faster than the standard car and just .5 seconds slower than the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.
