Ferrari has officially pulled the wraps off the brand new 458 Speciale Aperta, ahead of the model’s public debut which will take place next week, during the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
Ferrari’s newest creation is named the 458 Speciale Aperta and the supercar has put a stop to a lot of rumors once the company decided to pull the wraps of its body. The “Aperta” word is Italian for “open” and this is, as you probably already figured it out, the convertible version of the 458 Speciale, which has been rumored all this time.
The chopped off roof has managed to add just 50 kg (110 lbs) to the total weight of the vehicle, compared to the coupe, which means that the dry weight of the supercar stands at 1,340 kg (2,954 lbs). The retractable hard top needs just 14 seconds top open or to close. Ferrari says that the 458 Speciale Aperta is “the most aerodynamically efficient Ferrari spider ever” and this has been finished in the triple yellow livery with the Blu Nart and the Bianco Avus central stripe.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta is riding on forged five-spoke wheels and the interior design of the model is getting some carbon fiber on the door panels and on the dashboard. The seats have been finished in Alcantara and they have 3D technical fabric and 3D stitching, as the car manufacturer is explaining in its official press release.
