Photographers David Coyne (David Coyne Photography) and Gavin Gottfried (Just Some Style) had the opportunity to photograph what is believed to be the first Ferrari 458 Speciale in the USA. The customer had the car delivered last week by Ferrari of Newport Beach, prompting a ride through Laguna and Newport Beach, Calif., with the two photographers on hand to capture the moment.

The Ferrari 458 Speciale takes everything that makes the 458 Italia such an outstanding car, and adds greater aerodynamics, power and new technologies. Powering the car is a 4.5-liter V8 engine that, after tuning, produces 596 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. The weight of the car has also been dropped from the Italia’s 3,274 lbs to 2,843 lbs, creating a power-to-weight ratio of 4.77 lbs per hp.
