Ferrari's Newest One-Off is the 458 MM Speciale

For when a regular 458 Speciale is too mundane

If you have run out of private islands to purchase, and need a new outlet to dispose of a substantial amount of cash, you might want to get in touch with Ferrari's Special Projects department. Ferrari prides itself on catering to the every whim of buyers who are interested in creating a one-off car, usually designed to their exacting tastes. Sometimes, the design of these specialty cars come off as bulky, disjointed, and incohesive, a result of too many ideas applied to a small canvas. Ferrari's newest one-off commission, however, is quite the looker.

Based on the bones of a Ferrari 458 Speciale, the so-called 458 MM Speciale sports spectacular new bodywork and a drastically new profile. According to Ferrari, the customer desired a "visor" style front windshield. Ferrari obliged by painting the A-pillar black, creating a wraparound-style visual.

Compared to the standard 458 Speciale, the MM sports lengthened bodywork, created from aluminum and carbon fiber. Changes extend to redesigned front and rear bumpers, along with modifications made to the roofline and side intakes mounted to the immediate rear of the doors. In short, the owner created his or her very own Ferrari version of the popular McLaren 675LT, a supercar that serves as a lengthened and aerodynamically changed McLaren 650S.

The car rides on a set of all-new wheels, designed specifically for the MM. Inside, the moneyed owner specified an uprated audio system, and "trim definition," including satin white rings around controls on the center console tunnel.

Ferrari did not mention any mechanical modifications, so the 458 MM Speciale should feature the same naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V-8 engine, pushing out 597 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. This prodigious power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Want one? Well, it's a one-off creation, and it's likely to remain that way. That doesn't mean you wouldn't be able to have Ferrari create a special car of your own, however. You just have to break out the big bucks to make that happen.
