It seems an extremely high demand for the Ferrari 458 Speciale is causing some problems to those who have already ordered the model.

According to Magnitude Finance, Ferrari dealers are accepting deposits of up to £20,000 but that won't grant the customer with the guarantee he will actually receive the car. That's because the high demand for the model has forced Ferrari to prioritize orders coming from those who select more optional equipment for their 458 Speciale.

In other words, the cars are not being sold on a first-come first-served basis as many who have already placed an order have been advised several times to spend more on optional equipment or risk losing the order in favor of clients willing to get the 458 Speciale with all the bells and whistles.

One of the reasons why the 458 Speciale is in high demand has to do with the model's status of probably being one of the last naturally aspirated Ferraris. This means in the years to come the sought-after model will get more and more valuable and prices are expected to significantly increase so some people are probably buying it simply as an investment. It's the same story with the 458 Speciale Aperta which will actually be more exclusive as Ferrari plans on making only 499 cars.
