The latest creation by Ferrari’s One-Off programme, the 458 MM Speciale was recently given its first run out on Ferrari’s Fiorano circuit by chief test driver Dario Benuzzi and the enthusiastic British client the car was built for.
The Ferrari 458 MM Speciale was designed and built in-house by the Ferrari Styling Centre who built the model on the chassis and running gear of the 458 Speciale. The bespoke stylistic choices behind the design originated from the client’s request for extremely sporty lines and a ‘visor’ effect for the glasshouse.
In addition to the car’s ’Bianco Italia’ finish and an Italian flag themed livery, the 458 MM Speciale consists of all-new bodywork, handcrafted in aluminium with composite carbon-fibre bumpers front and rear.
Its unique and innovative side air scoop, which contributes to the 458 MM Speciale’s overall revision of Ferrari’s aerodynamic package, is one of the bespoke model’s most distinctive characteristics.
The 458 MM Speciale’s noticeably modified aerodynamic solutions are also evident at the front of the car with coolant radiators that are more steeply inclined and positioned closer together than on the 458 Speciale. Additionally, all new side intakes allow direct additional cooling of the engine bay which is designed to compensate for the different rake of the rear.
Completing the car’s aerodynamic modifications and overall athletic shape is its tail, which features a spoiler that functions to evenly balance the downforce for even greater performance.
Other exclusive features are the 458 MM Speciale’s wheels, modified front and rear light clusters and an enhanced audio system inside the cockpit added to satisfy the client’s bespoke wishes. The unique interior comprises Cioccolato leather upholstery with elegant white stitching which is enhanced by a few intricate touches, such as the satin white rings around the tunnel controls, making the Ferrari 458 MM Speciale a truly unique creation.
