Ferrari Achieves Highest Lateral Acceleration


    The 458 Speciale is the latest product of Ferrari’s core philosophy of extreme technological innovation and research which, in this instance, has yielded powertrain, aerodynamics, and vehicle dynamics advances that transform the 458 Italia into a car worthy of the ‘Speciale’ moniker. Many of the sophisticated solutions being applied for the very first time will become a standard feature of all new Ferraris in the future. It features Ferrari’s most powerful naturally aspirated V8 ever (605 cv) with a specific power output of 135 cv/l. Thanks to a weight/power ratio of just 2.13 kg/cv, the 458 Speciale can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in three seconds. One of the most innovative features of the vehicle is the Side Slip Angle Control system (SSC) which makes it easier to achieve car control at the limit, thereby greatly improving driving emotion.
