Autocar Drives the 458 Speciale

The world’s media got their first taste of the Ferrari 458 Speciale last week so what did Autocar make of it?

Steve Sutcliffe tried the new car (sideways) on both road and track, asking himself whether a price hike of around £40,000 (up to £208,000 from £178,491) was really worth it.

With 597 bhp, 398 lb/ft of torque, less weight, bigger brakes, a faster gearbox, and a new traction control system, it’s an attractive proposition.
