Ferrari 458 Speciale A 2015 - World Of Classic Cars -

Ferrari 458 Speciale A 2015

Like the 16M before it, the Ferrari 458 Speciale A was introduced to the Ferrari line-up in 2014 as a limited-edition convertible sibling to the 458 Speciale Coupé. The “A” stood for Aperta, and the car provided its driver and passenger with a full open-air experience, putting nothing between them and the 458 Speciale A’s glorious exhaust note.
Save for its roof, the Speciale A is nearly identical to the 458 Speciale. Thanks to prolific use of carbon fibre and attention to detail in weight savings, the Speciale A only adds 50 kilograms to its curb weight over the Speciale, which is an incredibly small amount for a convertible. Furthermore, the convertible top takes just 14 seconds to deploy or retract at the push of a button. As a result, performance remains largely the same thanks to the car’s active aerodynamics, and it can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in three seconds and has a top speed of 320 km/h.

This 458 Speciale A, finished in Nero Daytona with blue and white Speciale A N.A.R.T. livery over a matching Nero interior, was completed in late 2014 as a 2015 model-year example, and it was delivered shortly thereafter to its first owner in Germany. This incredibly well-optioned car is fitted with such features as 20-inch sport wheels that have been finished in matte Grigio Corsa, blue-painted brake callipers, the AFS headlight system, a carbon fibre front spoiler, the hydraulic nose lifting system, driver and passenger adjustable racing seats with blue Cavallinos stitched in the headrests, the HELE engine start-stop system, and a rear-view parking camera and parking sensors, amongst other options.

With the introduction of the turbocharged 488 GTB at the Geneva Motor Show just a few months ago, the 458 Italia and all its derivatives have been left as the last naturally aspirated V-8-engined cars in Ferrari’s range. Of the 458 models, the Speciale A combines the best elements of the platform—the uprated Speciale engine with the hardtop convertible roof of the spider—into one glorious package.
