Breaking: Ferrari working on the 458 Speciale Spider

Article by Christian A., on June 22, 2014

It appears that Ferrari is preparing a big surprise for its fans, as the Italian carmaker will roll out the 458 Speciale Spider! That’s right folks, the open-top version of the Ferrari 458 Speciale is coming. Inside sources from Maranello confirmed the 458 Speciale Spider to 4WheelsNews, but no other details were offered.

In addition, we contacted our second source, who also confirmed the 458 Speciale Spider and said that some dealers are already taking orders for the new sports car. There are no details regarding the debut of the new vehicle or how Ferrari will actually name this new model. We might see it in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, but this is only our opinion.

What’s for sure is that Ferrari will use the same 4.5-liter V8 engine found on the coupe version that generates 605 hp @ 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm.

The 458 Speciale coupe hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.1 seconds and laps the Fiorano racetrack in 1’23’’5. Moreover, the Ferrari 458 Speciale does the quarter mile in 10.7 seconds.

The 458 Speciale Spider is expected to use the same aluminum hard-top found on the 458 Spider that can be deployed in just 14 seconds. We also expect it to be a little bit slower than the 458 Speciale coupe.

The design will be identical to the coupe version, although we expect some beautiful colour combinations from the Prancing Horse. More details to be revealed!
