Limited edition Ferrari unleashed

Just 499 examples of the Ferrari 458 Speciale A (spider) will be manufactured.

Ferrari will premiere a roofless version of its 458 Speciale at the Paris Motor Show in October.

The 458 Speciale A (A as in ‘aperta’ or ‘open’) is the most powerful spider in Prancing Horse history and Ferrari says it “effortlessly marrying extreme performance with the sublime pleasure of drop-top driving”.

Its aluminium retractable hard top, which takes 14 seconds to deploy or retract, helps reduce the weight difference with the Speciale coupé to just 50kg.

The 458 Speciale A sports the most powerful naturally-aspirated road-going V8 engine ever built by Ferrari. The 4.5-litre develops 597bhp and Ferrari claims the Speciale A will sprint from 0-62mph in three seconds.

The car is being premiered in a unique triple-layer yellow livery with a Blu Nart and Bianco Avus central stripe as well as five-spoke forged wheels in Grigio Corsa.
