A few weeks ago the automotive blogosphere went into a frenzy as the first spy pictures of an unknown 488 GTB-esque Ferrari hit the net. There were many speculations as to what that thing could be, and those who called one-off special edition were right. The car in question has now been revealed as the Ferrari 458 MM Speciale and it’s built for a British owner.
Respecting the privacy of their customer, Ferrari have not revealed the identity of this British man and only refer to him as “enthusiastic.” Well, you kind of have to be enthusiastic to commission a one-off Ferrari considering how much it costs to do so. But this guy is more than a mere enthusiast. He is an aficionado given the looks of his bespoke car.
Built on the chassis and running gear of the 458 Speciale, Ferrari 458 MM Speciale features a unique body with radical design features such as black-painted A-pillars borrowed from the 1984 Ferrari GTO, Bianco Italia paint work with tricolore stripes, handcrafted body in aluminium with composite carbon bumpers, new side air scoop, modified front and rear light clusters and custom aerodynamic package.
Ferrari 458 MM Speciale must have the same engine and drivetrain as the 458 Speciale, seeing as Ferrari have not mentioned them in the press release. As for the interior, enhanced audio system, Cioccolato leather upholstery with white stitching and satin white rings around the tunnel controls are the main highlights.Official: Ferrari 458 MM Speciale One-Off,
