Ferrari 458 Speciale A (2015)

Ahead of next month's Paris Motor Show, Ferrari revealed its most powerful spider to date: the 458 Speciale A (Aperta, meaning open).

Dedicated to just 499 Ferrari collectors, the all-new supercar features a naturally-aspirated V8 4.5-liter engine delivering 605 HP at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. It will crack the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 3.0 seconds and has a Fiorano lap time of 1'23"5. Other features include a new aluminium retractable hard top, which takes a mere 14 seconds to deploy or retract.

The 458 Speciale A is showcased in a bespoke triple-layer yellow livery with a Blu Nart and Bianco Avus central stripe as well as five-spoke forged wheels in Grigio Corsa. Inside, the interior is simple and it's fitted with lightweight materials and upholstered in Alcantara leather as well as blue carbon fiber on the dashboard, door panels and central tunnel.
