Ferrari 458 Speciale Spider to Debut in Private Event at Pebble Beach

The Ferrari 458 Speciale Spider is set to debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance but unfortunately, it will only appear at a private event.

While the general public will have to wait a little longer to lay eyes on it, most of the key details about the Italian supercar are already known.

We know that the car will utilise the same uprated 4.5-litre V8 engine as the Speciale coupe. As a result, we expect it to deliver an identical 597 hp at a screaming 9000 rpm and 398 lb-ft of torque at 6000 rpm. As a result of this, the Ferrari 458 Speciale Spider should hit 100 km/h in around the same time as the coupe. That means a sprint of just over 3 seconds before hitting 200 km/h in 9.1 seconds.

The roof of the 458 Speciale Spider will be borrowed from the regular Ferrari 458 Spider which is of course an aluminium hard-top. This roof can be opened and closed in a mere 14 seconds.

At this stage, it seems likely that the car could debut publically at the Paris Motor Show in October. Despite this suggestion, Ferrari has yet to confirm a date but after the private debut at Pebble Beach, it is likely that a public unveiling date will be issued.
