General info

Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.
Has dual-clutch transmission
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
Has fully independent suspension
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
Has rear-wheel drive
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
Has four-wheel drive
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.
The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
drivetrain warranty (km)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
Is a hybrid car
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.
basic warranty (years)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

Dimensions

height

1.2m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product.
length

4.57m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
width

1.95m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product.
weight

1.4t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
Has vertically-opening doors
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.
The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
cargo volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
maximum headroom (rear)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
interior volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A larger interior volume makes for a more comfortable driving experience, giving more space for you and your passengers.

Speed

top speed

325km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-200 kilometres per hour.
coefficient of drag

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.
acceleration time (0-60 km/h)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-60 kilometres per hour.
acceleration time (100-200 km/h)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 100-200 kilometres per hour.
Nürburgring lap time

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The Nürburgring race circuit is widely considered to be the most challenging in the world, and the fastest lap times are seen as the ultimate test of a car’s performance. (Source: Nürburgring Lap Times)

Engine

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
Has a turbocharged engine
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
Has Stop-Start system
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.
Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
fuel economy (combined)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

Has in-car system
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
Has Bluetooth
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.
Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
Has smart key as standard
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
number of airbags

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
Has a rear-view camera
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
Has height-adjustable seat belts
Ferrari 458 Speciale (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
