The fastest naturally aspirated V8 supercar ever produced by Ferrari the 458 Speciale really needs no introduction, the already spectacular 458 platform benefits from a huge host of benefits including increased power which equates to the most driver focussed Ferrari V8 ever produced. The increased power means the 458's Motor holds a World Record for naturally aspirated output. The 458 Speciale's 597HP equates to 133hp/litre, an astonishing output. Perhaps not surprisingly, the 458 Speciale has won the prestigious "2013 Supercar of the Year" award from Top Gear Magazine and 2014 Evo Magazine "Car of the Year". The engine alone has won Best Performance Engine of the year 2011,2012 and 2014 as noted by the plaque between the seats.
Autocar Magazine formed the following conclusion on testing the awe inspiring Speciale: "The mid-engined Ferrari supercar has reached a turning point, it strikes us - and there may never be a better one for purist thrill-seekers than the one you see here. Next year comes a '458M' , for want of the official name: a mid-life refresh that'll bring with it a new turbocharged engine. We've recorded what turbos have done to BMW M cars, AMG Mercs, Porsche 911s and more in this modern performance car era - and seldom do we universally approve. Which is why right now may be a definitive moment in the development of the mid-engined Ferrari concept: a zenith in some ways, perhaps. The car to mark it could hardly be more aptly named or purposefully constructed.”
Cut from the same cloth as the legendary Challenge Stradale and Scuderia, the Speciale is the last naturally aspirated instalment in this hugely collectible line of naturally aspirated V8 thrilling V8 supercars. The 458 Speciale A is a spider variant for the 458 Speciale. The 'A' stands for 'Aperta', which is Italian for 'open' - and it was limited to only 499 examples and sold out immediately to the VIP clients of Ferrari only. Just like the closed-top Speciale, the Aperta has a 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 which produces 597 horsepower and 398 pound feet of torque. 0-60 mph takes only 3.0 seconds and it is capable of a top speed of 202 mph. It is the most powerful, street-legal, naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari has ever launched in a spider variant.
This stunning two owner Speciale Aperta was supplied new to its first owner in Belgium through Monza Ferrari, St Martens in February 2015. Finished in the stunning Bianco Avus with Livery in Blu Nart, this colour combination was made famous by the launch 599 GTO. The car received its first service at Scuderia Gran Tourismo of Munich at just 300 miles. In 2018, this car was imported into the UK where it was purchased by the current owner, via DK, having covered just 330 miles at that time. Available for sale today from its second owner, this example has been used sparingly as part of a large collection and as just such has today covered just 1,490 miles from new. The car was most recently serviced by H.R. Owen Ferrari in March 2020.
The interior is superbly appointed in Blu Sterling with contrasting Bianco stitching. The rev counter, also in Bianco, complements the Bianco seat inserts and creates a fantastic inversion of the outside livery. The car features a number of desirable options, including front axle vehicle lifting system, satellite navigation, parking camera, front and rear parking sensors and an upgraded, remote-valved Titanium Exhaust. The car was optioned with a number of Carbon Fibre options including the steering wheel and dashboard inserts, and rarely for a spider, the engine bay covers.
A thoroughly cohesive specification, the car is in perfect harmony inside and out with a number of thoughtful details including front wing vents and side fins in Blu Nart as per the livery. Available to view immediately at our showrooms just outside London, this Speciale Aperta presents superbly with just 1,490 miles from new.
