First Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta is auctioned for charity image

The Italian based automaker Ferrari has recently auctioned the very first unit of the 458 Speciale Aperta.

During a major event held in Beverly Hills, Ferrari has celebrated its 60 years of sales in the United States with a hot F60 America, which will be limited to just 10 units. Besides pulling the wraps off its newest creation, the company has also auctioned off the first unit of the 458 Speciale Aperta, for a stunning 900,000 USD. At the event, celebrities such as Mary J. Blige, Megan Fox, Michael Mann, Derek Hill or Dan Gurney were present.

As you probably already know by now, the Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta is the convertible version of the 458 Speciale, which has been officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, a couple of weeks ago. The model in question has the same 4.5 liter V8 naturally aspirated engine under its hood, which is capable of producing, in this case, 605 HP and 540 Nm of torque. The supercar has gained 50 kg because of the added roof mechanism and it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in the same 3 seconds. Only 499 units of the supercar will be produced.
