Limited to a production run of just 499 units, the Speciale A is indeed a special Ferrari 458. The 597 hp V8 powered 458 Speciale A (the A stands for Aperta, which means “open) features a retractable hardtop, and this topless rocket gets from 0-62 mph in just three seconds. The increase in performance largely comes from advanced aerodynamics and the use of lightweight materials (the chassis alone incorporates 10 aluminum alloys). More air scoops and aggressive spoilers help set the Speciale A apart from other Ferrari’s, and they even moved the tail pipes so they could redesign the rear diffuser for improved airflow. While the paint options, or lack thereof, are limited to yellow with blue and white racing stripes, the wheels will be available in three colors – Oro, Grigio Corsa and diamond-finish matt black. We’re a little partial to red when it comes to Ferrari’s, but were still insanely jealous of those 499 drivers that will get their hands on this prancing pony.
