When you think of Ferrari what do you picture? Is it the extensive racing history, handmade craftsmanship, or perhaps it is the name that resonates with you?
Whatever your passion, it’s hard not to admire all of these things about Ferrari. Their limited production numbers and high-performance luxury combined with an extremely high value get the gears in our heads and hearts turning as we long to have one for ourselves. This brings us to a very special car that we have for you today, the Ferrari 458 Speciale Spider. With the Speciale nameplate comes a few perks such as extreme rarity, a crazy horsepower to weight ratio, and a flamboyant exterior design that sets it apart from the rest, so what if you want to buy one?
We’ll be the first to admit that the price can seem a little steep at first glance, this car boasts a bounty of over $650,000. However, upon further examination, it becomes abundantly clear why it requires such an extraordinary price. This is just one of only 499 units produced of the Speciale Aperta variety, most of which were customized to fit the owner's exact desires. Setting this vehicle apart from the rest is a set of yellow decals and Speciale stripe which match the yellow brake calipers and contrast perfectly off of the black body.
Sitting between the axles of this 458 is a 4.5-liter V8 pushing out an incredible 597 horsepower and 398 lb/ft of torque. This naturally aspirated V8 produces a sound unlike any other, with a deep growl of an idling V8 being replaced with the screaming and whining of a European sports car at around 3,000-rpm and continuing throughout the long rev range at nearly 9,000-rpm. This beautiful vehicle is the perfect ride for any Ferrari fanatic and we strongly suggest you check it out.
