Limited Edition Ferrari 458 Speciale A - Only 499 Copies To Be Made
|   Friday, October 10, 2014
Ferrari has officially announced one of the surprises for the Paris Motor Show, a limited series of the Ferrari 458 Speciale A, a two-seater spider model based on the 458 Speciale Coupe model. Is the most powerful Ferrari convertible model in the history of the Maranello manufacturer, because it uses the same engine as the 458 Speciale Coupe model. This is the most powerful aspirated V8 engine built by Ferrari.
Only 499 copies of the Ferrari 458 Speciale A model will be built.


The 4.5 liter unit can deliver 605 hp at 9,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 540 Nm at 6,000 rpm. That means a power of 135 hp / liter, an impressive figure. The Ferrari 458 Special A (the letter comes from the Italian word "aperta", meaning "open") can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just three seconds and reaching 200 km / h requires 9.5 seconds. To transmit power to the rear axle, Ferrari uses a twin clutch automatic gearbox with seven gears.

This new limited model is created to celebrate the success of the 458, a model that won a lot of prizes as a street car, as well as a racing model. The 458 managed to win the 24 hours of Le Mans, 24 hours of Daytona plus the 12 hours of Sebring.

The total weight of the new model Speciale A is 1340 kg and the aluminum roof can be folded in just 14 seconds in fully automatic mode. Compared to the Special 458 Coupe model, the difference in weight is just an extra 50 kg for the Speciale A.

Between the limited edition 458 Speciale A and 458 Italia series versions and 458 Spider, there are some technical and optical differences. First, there have been a number of changes in order to mount the removable ceiling system for withdrawal. Thus, there is no glass hood through which you can admire the V8 engine, in its place being installed a painted hood that has six air intakes.

Ferrari says the new 458 Speciale A can go on a tour of the Fiorano circuit in 1: 23.5, a time equal to that achieved by the coupe version of the Special model.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale A is a very efficient car from aerodynamic point of view too, because it uses electronically controlled rear flaps and the traction is always maintained at optimal levels due to the Side Slip Angle Control system, which analyzes the vehicle's sideslip angle and compares it with the factory default and then distributes torque between the wheels in order to reach the desired value.

The Speciale A will be available in Giallo Triplo Strato. The color is combined with stripes painted in Blu Nart and Bianco Avus colors. The wheels are painted Grigio Corsa.

The Speciale A's interior is grand too, thanks to blue carbon fiber inserts, a unique element used only for this model. Also, the blue Alcantara with white stitching and yellow seats give the interior a unique look.

No information was given about the 458 Speciale A model price, but likely the amount for which you can park it in your garage will be close to 300,000 euro.
