    Love the leather seats! I didn't know that was an option. Alcantara never lasts for me. It eventually either pills or crushes. Great spec.

    I'll definitely update on my initial driving impressions shortly. The color is Rosso Maranello. You can see how it compares to the Rosso Corsa of my 458 Italia. It really is a beautiful color. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I've taken the Speciale out for a couple of drives and it really is an amazing car. I have a 2013 458 Italia and have just loved it since the day it was delivered. I didn't know how they would improve on it but this Speciale is actually better. The steering has a little more weight to it and the slight understeer I occasionally feel in my 458 Italia is gone. The front end is the most accurate of any car I've ever driven. I also have a Pista which is a great car in it's own right. The Pista is faster but there is no question the feel as well as the sound of the normally aspirated Speciale is in a league of it's own. I just think that Ferrari really hit a pinnacle with the Speciale.

    Agree. Not to mention highest ever CR V8 of 14:1 which is truly amazing - especially at 9k rpm.

    Not lusted after a V8 Ferrari after the Speciale. Incredible pieces of engineering the lot of them, but the Speciale tickles all the right senses. I'm surprised they're trading for what they are right now. Really would expect the last NA V8 to be trading higher already.
