As you already know, Ferrari has launched at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show the extreme 458 Speciale. Today, the most powerful version of the 458 Italia has been caught at the Fiorano test track stretching its muscles. 

The new 2013 458 Speciale is coming with a tweaked V8 engine that can offer 604 horsepower and 540 Nm peek of torque. 

Thanks to an equally exceptional weight/power ratio of just 2.13 kg/cv, the 458 Speciale can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.0 seconds (0-200 km/h in 9.1 seconds) and also clocked a lap time of just 1:23.5 at the Fiorano Circuit.

One of the most innovative features of the 458 Speciale is the Side Slip angle Control system (SSC) which makes it easier to achieve car control on the limit, thereby greatly improving driving emotions. Thanks to the development of an accurate new algorithm SSC performs instant-to-instant analysis of the car’s side slip, comparing it with the target value and then optimizing both torque management (via integration with F1- Trac traction control) and torque distribution between the two wheels (via integration with the E-Diff electronic differential).
