2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale

Where the current roadgoing Ferrari coupe with its rear-mounted V8 can go beyond this Speciale edition, I don't know. The 458 Italia and Spider already hold a very dear place in the hearts of anyone who has driven them on a sunny day over great roads or tracks, and I was pretty sure nothing could beat the heady sensory combo presented in the 458 Spider when I first drove it back in 2011. I may have to change my opinion now. Companies like Ferrari are in the enviable position of sprinkling performance dust on their already-great base cars, all just to make them a skosh better and grab us... Read More

    1396532580

    It may not seem so long ago that Ferrari introduced the 458 Italia. But it's been on the market a solid 5 years since its launch in 2009, which makes it not only the oldest model in the company's lineup, but one of the oldest in its segment, the Lamborghini Huracan and McLaren 650S just having been launched in the past couple of months. So while a ...

    One of the greatest things every Corvette has had going for it, and also one of the most re-used arguments against it, is its price-to-performance equation - long before the Nissan GT-R became the de facto Porsche 911 comparator the Corvette spent decades as Exhibit A. Depending on which side of the argument you stressed, supporters crowed about how much ...

    Ferrari 458 GT2 looks ready to swallow the competition whole

    As impressive as it may be in its own right, when Ferrari introduces a new V8 supercar, you know there's more to come. A Spider version. A Challenge racer. Probably a CS/Scuderia-style hardcore street version somewhere down the line. And yes, a GT2 racing version. That appears to be what we're looking at right here. Once a top-tier Le Mans contender, ...

    Even though Ferrari hasn't given the official word, it's clear that the automaker is working on a hardcore 458 Italia Challenge prepped for race duty. We first spied the car in May, and now we have video of the beastly Ferrari ripping off some test laps at Monza with a couple of 430 GT2s in tow. Nothing like the sound of race-spec Ferraris to enhance ...

    The crew at the Axis of Oversteer have managed to snag what could be the first images of the upcoming Ferrari 458 Italia Challenge, and while no one's claiming that this is the real McCoy just yet, it's certainly packing the right kit. The standard coupe's five-lug wheels have been nixed in favor of a single lug units, with each nine-spoke, lightweight ...

    Ferrari 458 Italia spotted in the flesh
    1249741860

    A lightly-camo'ed Ferrari 458 Italia has been caught napping by the roadside, and from the looks of it, Ferrari doesn't appear to have pulled any tricks with its renderings: the car's a dead ringer for what was presented last week, right down to the seriously extended mirror stalks and that disappearing back end. This is all very good, and we can't wait to ...
