Ferrari can be described as a finicky auto maker. Their legendary reputation has given them the discretion to be more selective about their clients, as demand is always higher than supply. Certain special limited edition models are not bought by customers, but rather the Italian sports car manufacturer gives their most loyal customers the opportunity to purchase these rolling prices of automotive history. This is why it’s always a big deal when Ferrari decides to grace one of its enthusiastic customers the opportunity to create a bespoke One-Off creation.
Created for a British enthusiast, this One-Off is the Ferrari 458 MM Speciale. Based on the 458 Speciale, a naturally aspirated car that has sadly been all spoken for in favor of the newer turbo-V8’s, the car’s sporting credentials oozes from the in-house Ferrari Styling Centre designed body. Although at first glance, the car’s styling is more reminiscent of the new Ferrari 488 GTB, like always the devil is in the details. All-new aluminum and composite carbon fiber bodywork adorn the front and rear, while new side air scoops improve the arodaymics of the car. Taking inspiration from the 1984 Ferrari GTO, the blackened A-pillar gives a unique visor appearance, while the lowered roofline lends to an aerodynamic sleekness to the C-pillar. The Bianco Italia paint job is finished off with a livery that pays homage to the Italian flag.
