Ferrari 458 MM Speciale was unveiled during the car’s first shakedown on the Fiorano circuit in the hands of Ferrari’s chief test driver Dario Benuzzi
Ferrari 458 MM Speciale is a one-off creation built for a mysterious British buyer. Designed in-house by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the luxury vehicle was built on the chassis and running gear of the 458 Speciale.
To fulfill the client’s pursuit of extremely sporty lines and visor effect for the glasshouse, the Ferrari 458 MM Speciale features a black-painted A-pillar, which provides a wraparound solution between the windscreen and side windows. Besides helping to turn the side windows into a seamless glass surface, the solution simultaneously lowers the roofline and lends an aerodynamic sleekness to the full volume of the swept-back C-pillar.
The bespoke front and rear aprons are sculpted in carbon composites. The front of the car features the coolant radiators which are mounted closer together, while the side intakes were 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 theoretical beltline that sweeps back along the side from the front wheelarch, giving the car a powerful and athletic stance.
The unique coupé features all-new bodywork, handcrafted in aluminium with composite carbon-fibre bumpers front and rear. A hue of white dubbed Bianco Italia covers the body of the car while the colors of the Italian flag are used as thin longitudinal stripes. The 458 MM Speciale also boasts a new side air scoop, one of the most distinctive elements in an extensive revision of the aerodynamic package.
The 458 MM Speciale sits on specific wheels exclusive to this very unique car. Inside, the Cioccolato leather upholstery with white stitching is elegantly accented by a slew of neat touches such as the satin white rings around the tunnel controls.
