The Ferrari 458 Speciale has been launched on the China super car market. Price starts at 4.48 million yuan or 740.000 USD. The Ferrari 458 Speciale is the hard core version of the Ferrari 458 Italia, fitted with a more powerful engine and more computers. Power comes from a screaming 4.5 liter V8 engine with 605hp and 540nm, mated to a seven-speed DCT, good for a 0-100 in only 3 seconds.
How racy a standing stalk on the center tunnel is. The standard 458 Italia starts at 3.88 million yuan or 636.000 USD, so the Speciale is more than a 100.000 more. The Italia has only 570 horses but torque is the same. Anyway, that stalk is probably worth all the extra cash. Normally when Ferrari launches a new model in China it does so with a wild ceremony featuring dancers, fireworks, and interesting corporate speeches. The 458 Speciale however was launched without any fanfare.
