Ferrari 458 MM Speciale Is A One Off For a Wealthy Customer And NOT The 488 Speciale
Remember a few weeks back we saw some pictures of what looked like a special edition 488 or Ferrari ‘Dino’ testing? Well it turns out to be an in-house designer supercar called the 458 MM Speciale. The car uses the same chassis running gear from the 458 Speciale but a wealthy customer demanded a whole new bodywork style. Ferrari Styling Center obliged and developed a new handcrafted aluminium body with composite carbon fibre bumpers on both ends. It also sports A-pillars painted in black to give the “visor” effect, new side air intakes to provide additional cooling and a rear spoiler for more downforce. The exterior paint job is called Bianco Italia and the Italian flag is featured in stripes across the entire length of this Speciale machine. The light clusters (front and back) ensure that it stands out from the 488 GTB and 458 Speciale and completing the cosmetic changes are a fresh set of wheels. Performance details are a secret (for the time being) but since it is based on the 458 Speciale, it’s safe to assume it packs a mid-mounted 4.5-litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine with an output of 597 HP and 540 Nm of torque.
