Ferrari’s latest one-off bespoke creation, the 458 MM Speciale has had its covers removed and its first shakedown on the famous Fiorano circuit.
This one-off masterpiece was designed in-house by the Ferrari Styling Centre and built on the chassis and running gear of the 458 Speciale.
Stylistically, the client was looking for extremely sporty lines and specified a ‘visor’ effect for the glasshouse: a black-painted A-pillar, very much in the style of the 1984 Ferrari GTO, helps provide a wraparound solution between the windscreen and side windows which thus meld into a single, seamless glass surface. The solution lowers the roofline and makes full use of the aerodynamically design back C-pillar.
The bespoke Ferrari was completed in Bianco Italia and comes complete with a livery that pays homage to the Italian flag. The all-new bodywork has been handcrafted in aluminium with composite carbon-fibre bumpers front and rear. The 458 MM Speciale also sports a new side air scoop; a fairly distinctive element among the host of aerodynamic revisions.
The side intakes are devised to allow direct additional cooling of the engine bay to compensate for the different rake of the rear. The tail features a spoiler which balances the downforce evenly and also completes the beltline that sweeps back along the side from the front wheel arch. Adding to the attire are a set of exclusive wheels to go along with this very unique car.
Inside, the cockpit upgrades benefits from an enhanced audio system and trim definition to match the owner’s specific wishes. The interior is wrapped in premium Cioccolato leather with white stitching elegantly accented by a slew of luxury touches such as the satin white rings around the tunnel controls.
There are no details on what this cost the customer, but one thing is for sure, it wasn’t cheap.
