The 458 Italia represents Ferrari's last production vehicle featuring a Naturally Aspirated Engine. The 4.5 Liter V8 produces
562 Horsepower and nearly 400 lb-ft of Torque allowing this Italian Stallion to gallop to 62 MPH in a blistering 3.4 Seconds.
To offset the pace of this Stallion, the Carbon Ceramic Brakes allow a stopping distance of 80 Feet from 60-0 MPH.
In keeping with Ferrari tradition the body was designed by Pininfarina and the exterior styling and features were designed for aerodynamic efficiency, producing a downforce of 309 lbs at 120 mph. The front grille features deformable winglets that lower at high speeds, in order to offer reduced drag.
The Spider version offered a Ferrari first in an Aluminum Power Retractable Hardtop that weighs less than the soft top used on the outgoing F430 Spider. This innovative design allows the 458 Spider to meet the performance specs of its coupe counterpart.
The car's interior was designed using input from former Ferrari Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher; in a layout common to racing cars, the new steering wheel incorporates many controls normally located on the dashboard or on stalks, such as turning signals or high beams.
According to British car magazine Autocar, the 458 Italia's design has drawn inspiration from the Enzo Ferrari and its Millechili concept car and was designed to be Ferrari's sportiest V8-engine car.
The 458 Speciale was unveiled in 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show as the high performance variant of the 458 Italia. Distinctions of the Speciale over the standard 458 Italia are the forged wheels, vented bonnet, finned side sills, a taller rear spoiler and redesigned bumpers, which include active aerodynamics designed by Ferrari Styling Centre in cooperation with Pininfarina; front and rear movable flaps balance downforce and cut drag at speed.
The engine was revised, with power increased to 597 HP at 9,000 rpm and 398 pounds of torque at 6,000 rpm. Electronic systems were updated too and side slip angle control (SSC) was introduced to improve car control on the limit. SSC performs instant-to-instant analysis of the car's side-slip, comparing it with the target value and then optimizing both torque management (via integration with F1-Trac traction control) and torque distribution between the two wheels (via integration with the E-Diff electronic differential]). The Speciale accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.0 seconds 0 to 120 mph in 9.1 seconds).
Ferrari declared a Fiorano test track lap time of 1:23.5, only 0.5 seconds slower than the F12 Berlinetta. Lateral acceleration now reaches 1.33 g.
The 458 Speciale A is the convertible variant of the 458 Speciale which was unveiled at the 2014 Frankfurt Motor Show. The 'A' stands for 'Aperta', which is Italian for 'open' – and the model was limited to only 499 examples (49 RHD examples). It was the most powerful, street-legal, naturally aspirated Ferrari automobile the company had ever launched in a convertible variant, until it was surpassed by the LaFerrari Aperta in 2017.
This Aperta is stunning and well equipped. Ferrari's last naturally aspirated race inspired version is slated to be a highly sought after collectible and is ready for it's new home.
