Paris Motor Show 2014: Ferrari premieres 458 Speciale A

Published 02 October 2014

Ferrari has premiered a limited edition 458 Spider at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The Speciale A (A for Aperta, or 'open') model is limited to 499 cars and is expected to cost around £230,000.

Power comes from a V8 engine producing 605PS, with 540Nm of torque. 0-62mph takes 3.0 seconds. You might not expect Ferrari to think too much about the environment but emissions are 275g/km – a figure comparable to a family saloon from ten years ago.

The aluminium roof can be folded electronically in 14 seconds. It increased weight over the 458 Speciale hard-top but the performance difference between the two is negligible.
