Ferrari 458 Speciale A: a new record-breaking spider
Ferrari announced the world debut of the new Ferrari 458 Speciale A during the Paris Motor Show which will take place from 4th to 19th of October. This new limited edition special series is a celebration of the dazzling success of the various versions of the 458 such as the double WEC title, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 24 Hours of Daytona, and the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Ferrari’s most powerful spider
Dedicated to just 499 Ferrari collectors, the 458 Speciale A is considered as the most powerful spider in Prancing Horse history.
Thanks to its powerful naturally-aspirated road-going V8 engine, the 458 Speciale A achieves extreme performance. It punches out a massive 605 cv (135 cv/l specific power output) and 540 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm and sprints from 0-100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds.
This new V8, considered as the most powerful engine ever built by Ferrari, has already won three international Best Performance Engine awards, which are acknowledged on a special plaque in the cockpit.
The 458 Speciale A achieved a Fiorano lap time of 1’23″5, that perfectly demonstrates the superb results of its frond and rear active aerodynamics. As always with the Prancing Horse, the 458 Speciale A‘s sculpted forms are outstanding but above all, performance-oriented. Indeed, thanks to a series of innovative and original bodywork solutions, the 458 Speciale A has become the most aerodynamically efficient Ferrari spider ever!
Moreover, the rigidity of its chassis and the Side Slip Angle Control guarantee unparalleled sporty driving in all conditions and an exhilarating soundtrack.
A striking design
During the Paris Motor Show, the 458 Speciale A will be premiered in a unique triple-layer yellow livery with a Blu Nart and Bianco Avus central stripe as well as a five-spoke forged wheels in Grigio Corsa.
Inspired by the racing universe, the cockpit is mainly equipped with lightweight yet exclusive materials. Indeed, the 458 Speciale A features an uncluttered dash, exclusive moulded door panels and a central tunnel in an exclusive blue carbon-fibre (also used for the tread plates).
To top it all off, the newly-designed seats in Alcantara© are perfectly contrasting with the stitching and the new 3D technical fabric.
