Ferrari has announced it’s working on a super-modern supercar, and it will be called the Ferrari 458 Speciale.
The name “speciale” comes from the fact that the car is being built in-house rather than being purchased from a car dealership.
The car will be based on the legendary 458 Special, the Italian supercar Ferrari launched in 1981, but will also be powered by a V8 engine and come equipped with a supercharger.
The 458 Special will have a 0-60mph time of 6.9 seconds, a top speed of 310mph and will be capable of accelerating from 0 to 60mph in just 2.5 seconds.
It will be the fastest Ferrari ever built.
But that’s not all.
Ferrari says the car will have two levels of safety features: an automated crash-prevention system and a human-controlled crash-avoidance system.
The system will automatically detect if you are driving at excessive speeds and will alert the driver if you have gone too fast.
It will also come equipped to detect when you are approaching a curve or an obstacle, and automatically disengage its emergency brake.
The car will also have a high-beam radar system that will scan the road ahead and warn drivers if they are going too fast, but is not meant to spot pedestrians, cyclists or people on foot.
The interior of the Ferrari will also feature a sophisticated carbon fibre design, with the rear seats folded over and the doors facing forward.
The luxury car will make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month, and will go on sale later in 2018.
