FERRARI is set to reveal the 458 Speciale at the upcoming Frankfurt motor show.

The Italian carmaker says powertrain, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics transform the already exceptional 458 Italia into a car genuinely worthy of the "Speciale" moniker.

Many of the new technologies seen here will become standard features of all new Ferraris in the future.

The new mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta was designed to boost both performance and driving emotion to unprecedented levels. The 458 Speciale can sprint from 0 to 100 kmh in three seconds, 0-200 kmh in 9.1.

This is also the most aerodynamically efficient production car in Ferrari history.

The 458 Speciale will receive its public world debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.
