The chassis and running gears are derived from the 458 Speciale.

If the stock Ferrari supercars are not exclusive enough for you, the Italian marque is more than happy to come up with a stunning one-off car taking into account your wishes and tastes.

All you to do is be ready to transfer an enormous sum of money to the scarlet outfit. This Bianco White Ferrari 458 MM Speciale is one such example which was commissioned by an “enthusiastic British owner”.

Isn’t the profile vaguely familiar? The new Ford GT comes to my mind!

The unique supercar was unveiled during his first shakedown test at the brand’s famous Fiorano circuit in the hands of chief test driver Dario Benuzzi and of course, the secret British client. Ferrari’s press note about the car deliberately missed expanding the ‘MM’ in the name.

The car has new diffusers, air-intakes and taillights.

Ferrari says that the one-off car is based on the chassis and running gear of the 458 Speciale. The MM Speciale features extensively reworked bodywork. The profile looks nothing like the car it is based on. The client wanted a wraparound glass effect and hence, the A-pillars have been blacked out and the glasshouse has been redesigned to achieve an effect of a seamless glass surface.

The unique prancing horse packs a 4.5-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine which puts out 605 PS and 540 Nm of torque.

This exercise also led to a lower and aerodynamically sleek roofline. The headlamps, hood, bumpers, wheels and taillights are also tweaked to heighten the car’s exclusivity. The interiors get an updated audio system and trim definition as per the owner’s tastes. The cabin is swathed in Cioccolato leather upholstery with white contrast stitching.
