A Very Special Ferrari Speciale

Even if your bank account has around 10 times more zeros than the average buyer, your car choices will reflect the same desire to stand out and be different from your peers. However, if your favourite Country Club’s parking lot is filled with Ferraris and Lamborghinis, you have to be a little more creative to get you and your ride noticed.

If money is no object, you can ask the Ferrari Styling Center to customize your vehicle. They made one-off Ferraris for famous clients like Jim Glickenhaus and Eric Clapton, among others.

Their latest creation is based on a 458 Speciale. It is painted in Bianco Italia and features decals in the colours of the Italian flag on its hood and roof.

This Ferrari has unique, larger air intakes and a reworked rear spoiler, while its one-off body kit is made of carbon fibre.

Overall power hasn’t been announced, but since the air intake had to be enlarged, we figure that the V8 lurking underneath may have more than the Speciale’s 597 horsepower.
