The Ferrari 458 Speciale is the performance variant of the 458 Italia. It is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine, capable of producing 597 hp and 540 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission that transmits the power to the rear wheels of the car.
While the stock exhaust of the 458 Speciale is like music to the ears of a petrolhead, the video below shows the car fitted with a Novitec exhaust system. The Youtube clip was recorded on an airfield near Prague in Czech Republic and shows the exhilarating acceleration and sound of the Novitec equipped Ferrari.
The Speciale can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in three seconds, which is 0.4 seconds faster than the Italia and has an electronically limited top-speed of 325 km/h. The 458 Speciale A, which is the spider model of the 458 Speciale, features the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine seen in a road-legal Ferrari spider car.
