According to a recent report, the 2013 allotment of the Ferrari 458 Speciale is already all spoken for.

U.S. delivery of the Ferrari 458 Speciale won’t begin until Spring 2014, but it appears that the special edition model is already sold out. The 458 Speciale packs the most power-per-liter from any Ferrari engine with its 4.5-liter V8 making 605 hp, 35 hp more than the standard 458 Italia. Combined that with the fact that it is nearly 200 lbs lighter, and you have an exotic that accelerates to 62 mph in just three seconds.

Though official pricing still hasn’t been announced for the 458 Speciale, it is expected to go for around $300,000 in the U.S. Regardless, the lack of an official price tag hasn’t stopped buyers from lining up for the special edition model. The Ferrari 458 Speciale originally made its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and is a spiritual successor to models such as the F430 Scuderia and 360 Challenge Stradale.
