The 458 Speciale is the top performing 458 Italia. Distinctions of the Speciale are the forged wheels, vented bonnet, finned side sills, taller rear spoiler and redesigned bumpers, which include active aerodynamics designed by Ferrari Styling Centre in cooperation with Pininfarina; front and rear movable flaps balance downforce and cut drag at speed. The engine was revised, with power increased to 445 kW (597 hp) at 9,000 rpm, 540 N·m (398 lb·ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm. Electronic systems were updated too, introducing side slip angle control (SSC) to improve car control on the limit. SSC performs instant-to-instant analysis of the car’s side slip, comparing it with the target value and then optimising both torque management (via integration with F1-Trac traction control) and torque distribution between the two wheels (via integration with the E-Diff electronic differential). The weight/power ratio (1,290 kg dry, 1,395 kg at the kerb, 90 less than the standard 458) is equal to 2.13 kg/cv, sprints from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just three seconds (0–125 mph or 0–200 km/h in 9.1 seconds with a response time of just 0.060 seconds). Ferrari declared a Fiorano test track lap time of 1:23.5, only 0.5 seconds slower than the F12 berlinetta. Lateral acceleration now reaches 1.33 g.

Love all aspects of the car from styling to engine sound and comfort. Space is excellent in the cabin ( boot tight though) & the seats are very comfortable even over long distances. Sat nav is very fiddly to use but very accurate in operation.
Never driven an electric car before, it’s a very strange sensation not hearing an engine and driving silently off. But boy does this thing go. The one he rented had ludicrous mode, which can only be described as like taking off in a Jet plane. As much as I love the internal combustion engine, I think it’s days are numbered with cars like this.
Having previously had an E90 M3 coupe, I was expecting good things from the new M4 (aka M3 coupe!). And it does not disappoint. The handling is a lot sharper, and you don’t miss the 2 cyclinders in terms of power as the new 6 pot performs very well (can’t quite say the same for the exhaust tone but if you’re down 2 cylinders, not much you can do).
Get behind the wheel of a Mercedes C63 AMG coupe and it takes only 10 minutes on the road to come to some inevitable conclusions, the first and foremost being that this car is one very special piece of machinery. As soon as you fire up the 6.3 liter V8, you are met with a sonorous and distinctly AMG crack and burble not dissimilar to something you would expect from a NASCAR racer…
The spider is a great car, we rented one in July for a long weekend – definitely recommend Classic Parade for their outstanding service.
One of the best cars driven with the most practicality for a coupe, best performance, reliability and handling that makes every drive a great experience. Drove 6hrs in an A3 and the TT RS and he latter made it feel like a pleasure!
Not the kind of car I normally rent from Classic Parade but needs must! They really do have a car for every occasion. Though I’ll take the Aston again next time guys!
Was very impressed with the Ghibli. Comfort and performance in one! Was the perfect car to have around London after flying in to Heathrow from Dubai for the weekend. Thanks again.
The wife & I loved taking this Lexus out. I used to own a supra, so this was a stop gap to quench the thirst until it arrives ! Handles beautifully, with enough power to make progression at a good pace.
We hired the Rover for a few days in July – car arrived immaculate & very impressed with it’s performance
