$3 Million One-Off Ferrari 458 MM Speciale Destroys Its Rear Tires at Goodwood

Back in May, when we told you Ferrari had built the one-off 458 MM Speciale for a British client, there was one important question that remained unanswered - would the man turn the special-Speciale into a garage queen or would he let its stretch its mechanical legs like such a machine should?

Well, the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed has brought us the answer and, thankfully, we're dealing with an overly positive outcome. To be more precise, the Ferrari 458 MM Speciale took part in the UK's velocity celebration, with Ferrari tearing apart its rear tires in the process. And when such a machine is rumored to cost north of $3 million, this is no small feat.

While the naturally-aspirated wonder was hooned on the 1.12-mile Hillclimb course, the part that drew our attention the most has to do with the tire-smoking moments visible in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.

While the drift-turn performed by the driver wasn't the sharpest one out there, seeing such a Prancing Horse being hooned in such a fashion feels overly satisfying. As for the accolade mentioned in the previous sentence, we'll remind you that, in our book, the Koenigsegg One:1, which used the Porsche 918 Spyder as its drifting cone, grabbed that title.

Returning to the 605 PS Maranello machine in the clip below, the driver also went for a burnout, to the obvious delight of the audience. It was simply impossible to miss this Ferrari during the FoS, especially given its color scheme. We'll remind you the MM is dressed in a shade of White dubbed Bianco Italia, with the colors of the Italian flag becoming thin longitudinal stripes.

P.S.: If the motorized Italian flag thing got your heart pumping, you should also check out this LaFerrari, which likes to remind Americans where it was built.
