Last names for more than two decades have accompanied the traditional sporting prancing horse, carrying the engine behind eight-cylinder vee. The last of the special versions of Maranello we have already spoken in our weekly High Performance, but the protagonist in this year 2013 – and for many years – will be the Ferrari 458 Speciale, the last Italian gem for those who frequent the circuits .

The Ferrari 458 Speciale is more powerful than the 458 Italia we already know from a few years ago, with a total of 605 hp. It is also 90 kilograms lighter.
