[VIDEO] Spotted – Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta in Monaco image

A rare example of the Ferrari 458 Speciale in the Aperta version has been spotted driving around in Monaco, recently.

It might have been replaced by the 488 GTB, but Ferrari has played it safe and released the 458 Speciale first, which is available, or was available since all units have been sold, in two body styles, coupe and convertible. The rare example of the 458 Speciale Aperta, the drop-top version, has been spotted recently driving around Monaco. Unlike the red finished ones which we are all used to, this particular model has a stunning Blue Scozia shade covering its body. You can check it out better in the clip posted below.

The Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta, or simply “A” is the spider version of the 458 Speciale. It has been unveiled not too long ago and its production is limited to just 488 units. Chopping off its roof has added 50 kg to its total weight, compared to the coupe, and this basically means that the supercar stands at 1,350 kg. The retractable hard top can be pulled down in just 14 seconds and the model has received carbon fiber tweaks inside it, Alcantara finish for the seats and 5-spoke wheels. The most important part can be found under its hood where the same 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, from the 458, is resting. This has been upgraded and it is capable of putting down a total of 605 HP and 540 Nm of torque, enough for a 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in just 3 seconds.
