The 2013 Ferrari 458 Speciale, abbreviated as Ferrari 458 S, is a limited-production supercar that first appeared in Forza Horizon 2 via the Top Gear Car Pack and has returned for all subsequent main series titles. It also makes an appearance in Forza Motorsport 6 as VIP Membership content and in Forza Motorsport 6: Apex.

Succeeding the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, which is based on 458 Italia predecessor Ferrari F430, the 458 Speciale, the top-performing variant of the 458 Italia, was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and produced between 2013 and 2015. The 458 Speciale A ("A" standing for "Aperta"), the spider variant of the 458 Speciale, was also produced between 2013 and 2015 with only 499 units. The 458 Speciale is Ferrari's last model with a naturally aspirated V8 engine, as naturally aspirated V8 engines would be discontinued with the Ferrari California T and 488 GTB, the latter of which is the 458's successor.

Description

The 458 Speciale is the car that will stop your heart and then kickstart it again, all in a span of a sprint to the next red light. It will sing you to sleep every night with its rapturous exhaust note, it will embrace you firmly in its carbon fiber seats and never let you go. The Speciale is special in every sense of the word; it tops the Italia by reducing weight, increasing output, enhancing handling, and providing an epic driving experience. At a glance you will recognize the telltale striping of its predecessors the 360 Challenge Stradale and 430 Scuderia. Up close you will note subtle body flourishes that aid aerodynamics. Yes, the Speciale is stripped down, but what remains is a tantalizing package that represents the one of the purest driver-focused cars ever built.

Characteristics

The Ferrari 458 Speciale, being a high-performance version of the 458 Italia, features an updated 4.5L (4,499 cc) F136 F V8 engine with the power now rated at 597 hp (445 kW). The torque still remains unchanged at 398 ft·lb (540 N·m), though. The Speciale retains the original seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The 458 Speciale's visual distinctions include forged five-spoke wheels, a vented front bonnet, a taller rear wing, finned side sills, and redesigned bumpers with active aerodynamics. Front and rear movable flaps create a balance in downforce and decrease drag at high speeds. The Speciale is also lighter than the 458 Italia, weighing only 3075 lb (1395 kg).

The 458 Speciale features a power-to-weight ratio of 428 hp (319 kW) per tonne. Ferrari claims 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h), which is always exceeded in each Forza appearance.

Trivia

  • The 458 Speciale's active aerodynamics are actually nonfunctional in the Forza games. This has never been corrected.
