Coupe 2018-2019 Ferrari 458 Speciale fully justifies the name of technological innovation and decent performance. Supercar received an upgraded powertrain, side-slip control system (SSC), and improved aerodynamics.
Skilled 2018-2019 Ferrari Styling Centre, working in collaboration with Pininfarina, managed to balance the downforce and reduce drag. As a result, the manufacturer calls 458 Speciale most aerodynamically efficient car in its history, and promises in the future to apply active aerodynamic elements on all new models.
The movement of the Italian supercar is the atmospheric engine V8 volume of 4.5 liters. It is this engine, two years in a row awarded the title of «Best Performance Engine», previously perfected specialists Hennessey Performance, adding a double boost. 2018-2019 Ferrari’s engineers have improved performance without such radical transformations.
Now, the engine develops 605 horsepower at 9000 rev / min instead of the previous 570 and demonstrates the “horses” power density index 135 to one liter working volume. Maximum torque is unchanged at 540 Nm. The manufacturer has already hastened to name his best powertrain atmospheric V8.
Due to the ratio of weight / power of 2.13 kg per horsepower Coupe Speciale 458 accelerates from zero to hundred kilometers per hour in three seconds, which is 0.4 seconds faster than the 458 Italia. Two hundred kilometers per hour supercar reaches for 9.1 seconds, and the range on the test track Fiorano travels in 1’23 “5. More car boasts 1,33g lateral acceleration and extremely fast response of the motor to effect the gas pedal (0.06 seconds) .
SSC (Side Slip angle Control) system analyzes the sideslip of the car and helps the driver to control skidding by controlling the thrust F1-Trac and active rear differential E-Diff. Goes supercar on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires developed specifically for the coupe. Tires car contributed to the achievement of excellent results in the conditions of the race track. The novelty will debut at the International Motor Show IAA in Frankfurt.
