Ferrari 458 Speciale Unveiled

The Ferrari 458 Speciale has been fully revealed before making its public debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show next month. The supercar was originally rumored to be carrying a nameplate of Scuderia or Monte Carlo, but it turns out the Italian automaker chose Speciale nameplate.

Under its hood, the new 458 Speciale is powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.5-liter V8 engine that has been modified in order to deliver up to 605 horsepower at 9,000 rpm (135 HP/liter) and 398 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm. This allows the supercar to sprint from 0-62 mph in just 3.0 seconds and takes almost nine seconds to complete 0-124 mph.
