3. Ferrari 458 Speciale
Take a moment to peruse these specs: 5.5-liters, 14-to-1 compression, 9,000-RPM redline, 398 lb-ft, 597 hp. The 458 Speciale’s Formula 1-grade engine is Ferrari’s most powerful naturally aspirated V8 ever. This thing is essentially a racecar you can commute to work in.
Direct fuel injection, trumpet-shaped vertical intake stacks and the all-important flat-plane crankshaft contribute to this engine’s WAILING exhaust note. Where the preceding SLS AMG rumbles Ferrari’s 458 Speciale screams.
