For those who can’t wait a few days before the start of the Paris Motor Show 2014, Fer­rari has shown off some offi­cial pho­tos of its stun­ning new Fer­rari 458 Spe­ciale A. What real­ly impress­es about this car is the spe­cial col­or. A Fer­rari does­n’t have to be red to be breath­tak­ing. With a bold blue and white stripe on a shim­mer­ing yel­low body­work, the new Spe­ciale looks both men­ac­ing and eye-catch­ing at the same time.

Ferrari 458 Speciale A

In case you were won­der­ing, the A in the name is short for “Aper­ta,” which sim­ply means “open,” and clear­ly refers to the flip top. You will be sur­prised to learn how pow­er­ful this beast turned out to be. Fer­rari says it’s one of the com­pa­ny’s most pow­er­ful con­vert­ibles. Its 4.5‑liter V8 engine (same as in the Spe­ciale coupe) pro­duces 597 horse­pow­er. With. and 398 nm torque.

Inside, the super­car has Alcan­tara trim with yel­low accents, as well as blue car­bon fiber pan­els in key areas like the cen­ter tun­nel and door pan­els. The con­vert­ible con­fig­u­ra­tion adds approx­i­mate­ly 50 kilo­grams to the vehi­cle’s weight, which slows accel­er­a­tion by a tenth of a sec­ond. Accel­er­a­tion from 0 to 100 kilo­me­ters per hour takes only 3.0 sec­onds, which is also an impres­sive result. The roof of the Fer­rari 458 folds down in just 14 sec­onds, allow­ing you to expe­ri­ence an exhil­a­rat­ing dri­ving expe­ri­ence in one of the best cars in the world in the blink of an eye.
