Customer deliveries of the potent Ferrari 458 Speciale A recently kicked off and now an eye-catching red example is calling the Czech Republic home.
Alongside the red paint, this particular Ferrari 458 Speciale A features bright yellow brake calipers and centre caps as well as a blue and white racing stripe livery. The resulting look is exceptionally bold and impossible to miss!
The Speciale A is the successor the hardcore 16M, the fabric roofed brother of the epic Scuderia. Of course, the Speciale A adopts the folding aluminium hardtop that features on the 458 Spider. Unlike the Speciale the A, which stands for Aperta, will be limited to just 499 Ferrari collectors and is the most powerful Spider in Prancing Horse history. Its aluminium retractable hard top, which takes only 14 seconds to deploy or retract, helps reduce the weight difference with the Speciale coupé to just 50 kg.
The Ferrari 458 Speciale A also features the most powerful naturally-aspirated road-going V8 engine ever built by the Italian marque. The engine, which might be the last naturally-aspirated engine that Ferrari ever builds, produces a colossal 597 bhp and 540 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. All this power means the Speciale A sprints from 0-100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds, the same as the Speciale Coupe, and has a Fiorano lap time of 1 minute 23 seconds, again identical to the Coupe.
