Ferrari never ceases to amaze us. There is just something about this legendary automaker that makes us go weak at the knees – and we’re pretty sure they know that they have this effect on a lot of people.
The latest creation to come out of the Ferrari garage is undoubtedly one of their finest. In terms of design, looks and power, the Ferrari 458 Special A is absolutely gorgeous – and finally t has been revealed in all it’s Italian glory.
After leaked images of the car appeared all over the internet this past week, Ferrari decided that it was time the world was officially introduced to their new baby (well, really they didn’t have a choice after it spread like wildfire through the internet).
So, ladies and gentlemen, here it is, the all new Ferrari 458 Speciale A.
The Ferrari 458 Special A is actually called the Ferrari 458 Special Aperta. Aperta meaning open. The company will only manufacture 499 models of this type and to is billed to be the most powerful Ferrari ‘drop top’ in their long history.
And yes it has a drop top. But unlike the coupé, this car is a hard top convertible that can release and retract its roof in a mere 14 seconds. You also do not have to worry about the added weight of the aluminium roof – it only adds approximately 50kg to the entire weight of the car.
As for the engine; it is as powerful and beautiful as you would imagine.
The Ferrari 458 Special A has a 4.5 liter, V8 engine that delivers 597 horsepower and can go from 0 – 100 km/h in a mere 3 seconds. That’s fast.
The inside is just as delicately designed and classy as the outside. Carbon fibre runs throughout and the interior offers Alcantara wrapped seats finished off with beautiful 3D sticking and technical fabric.
Ferarri has not revealed official pricing for the car as of yet, but, you can be sure that the Ferrari 458 Special will set you back quite the pretty penny.
It will make its official debut at the Paris Auto Show in October.
