General info

1.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.
2.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.
3.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.
4.CO2 emissions

275g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.

Dimensions

1.height

1.2m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.length

4.57m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.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.
4.width

1.95m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.wheelbase

2.65m

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).

Speed

1.top speed

325km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

3s

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

9.1s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-200 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.maximum torque

540Nm

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.
2.engine size

4.5l

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.
3.horsepower

597hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.number of cylinders

8

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.
5.fuel economy (highway)

8.5l/100 km

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.
6.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.

Features

1.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.
2.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.
3.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.
4.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
