The Ferrari 458 Speciale is a lightweight performance special edition and was the centrepiece of the Italian firm's stand at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show.

The Ferrari 458 Speciale's power comes from a modified version of the 458's V8. With 597bhp and 398lb ft of torque it is the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 ever built by the company. It has a specific output of 133bhp per litre, which Ferrari says is the highest ever achieved by a naturally-aspirated road-going engine. Maximum power is achieved at 9000rpm; maximum torque at 6000rpm.
