Ferrari 458 Speciale Paint Protection Film

To Ferrari or Not To Ferrari, that is the question!

Our response is always To Ferrari! This Italian Supercar is protected withXPEL ULTIMATE

The owner of this beautiful Ferrari 458 Speciale wanted ultimate protection while driving the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari ever created (so far). Yes I said ever, the Ferrari 458 Speciale makes 597bhp coming from a 4.5 Liter (4497cc)V8 engine . To bea little more specific, the Speciale makes 133bhp-per-liter, making it the highest specific output of any naturally aspirated Ferrari road car, Enzo and LaFerrari included. Now, if you are thinking of buying one or you're currently an owner of aFerrari 458 Speciale, thislittle monster will take you from 0-60 miles per hour in just 3 seconds, which is .4 seconds faster than the 458 Italia. So, if you were thinking about upgrading your 458 Italia, this is definitely the car to pick. The Speciale shifts faster, turns quicker and even stops shorter. The engineers at Ferrari lightened the Speciale by 200 pounds and added a dash of clever technology to the car. The technical advances will amplify your skills, stroke your ego and make for a much more spirited driving experience. Since the owner wanted to drive this car to its maximum potential, they needed the best protection. They opted for a full front of XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing paint protection film. This includes the full hood, front bumper, headlights, full fenders and mirrors.If you look below you can see the kits we used for this magnificent car. Everything is plotter cut, meaning there is no need for cutting on the car.Please enjoy; I know we did.

XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra

XPEL ULTIMATE leadsthe industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more. We stand behind our product 100%, so much so that ULTIMATE has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and/or delaminating.

Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your cars factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving.

Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties

Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wirebrush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source.

Not all Patternsare created equal

At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern youll have less to worry about, since the installer willnot be trimming the film on your vehicle.Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished.

Contrary to what some may believe its possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. WithXPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible,for example around theparking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision.
