Ferrari Made This 458 MM Speciale for One Lucky Buyer
One lucky gent has the latest one-off from Ferrari.
On Monday the brand announced its newest creation: a single, bright white Ferrari 458 MM Speciale, which sold for an undisclosed sum to an “enthusiastic” male British driver, according to a representative. The automaker developed the one-of-one car totally in-house at its Ferrari Styling Centre, on the chassis and running gear of a 458 Speciale. (That’s the top-end V8, 597-horsepower coupe Ferrari premiered in 2013; it starts at $298,000.)
Ferrari said the press-shy client had requested that the front of the car resemble a visor, so this 458 MM Speciale has a black-painted A-pillar that blends the front into a single seamless glass surface and wraps around the entire windshield and side windows. The effect makes the roof look lower and sleeker than that of the standard-issue 458.
Also new for this bespoke model are updated carbon-fiber bumpers in the front and rear; unique rims; and modified bodywork with fresh aluminum accents and a new side air scoop. The tail end has a functional spoiler that also conveniently completes the car’s elegant line from front to rear. The exterior paint is called Bianco Italia, and the color detailing is an homage to the Italian flag.
Inside, the 458 MM Speciale has an “enhanced” sound system and material upgrades including Cioccolato leather upholstery with white stitching and satin white rings around the tunnel controls. Best of all, even with all the upgrades, the car is still legal on city streets. Let’s hope Mr. Englishman has the guts to drive it there.
