The richest of the rich is not just like any rich people you know, as these guys can multiply their money in a very short amount of period. You are probably wondering how they do this because you want to do it for yourself, but it isn’t that easy because you really have to be loaded. What they do is they invest their money in a super rare supercar, like the Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta. After some, they’re able to sell it for double or even triple its MSRP.
The Speciale, similar to the 360 Stradale and F430 Scuderia, was meant to become an even more hardcore version of Maranello’s mid-engine supercar. Surely, it’s an excellent piece of work with its naturally aspirated 4.5 liter V8 that carried out no less than 605 PS (597 horsepower) and 540 Nm (398 pound-feet) of torque, plus the number of modifications it has got.
With this engine, it is capable of accelerating from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in only 3 seconds flat, before continuing to its maximum speed of 325 kilometers per hour (202 miles per hour). The car is very easy to handle and has a really sexy roar.
If you aren’t into coupes and prefer an open-top version of the Speciale, there is also the SpecialeA, and that letter stands for Aperta. When comparing both variants, they are pretty much the same except for the roof that had been chopped off. There is also an additional 50kg increase in weight to compensate for the loss in structural rigidity.
Ferrari built a total of 400 examples of the 458 Speciale A, and that what makes it very unique. Though it may be difficult to get your hands on one, we can assure you that it isn’t impossible.
The example you are looking at in these photos is one of the rarest models. Making it even more desirable is the fact that it only has 57 miles (91 kilometers) on its odometer despite it being a 2015 model. In other words, it is good as new and has barely been used.
A couple of years ago, this model had a base price of £228,682, which is quite reasonable for a rare Italian exotic car. But currently, this model is listed online at AutoTrader, sold by Amari, with an asking price of £719,994. That is equivalent to around $1,019,280 at current exchange rates, and like I said earlier, it is triple the amount of what the original owner paid for it, making him a lot of money when this car gets sold.
This example is finished in Ferrari’s signature Rosso Corsa hue, and a tricolore stripe. Inside, the cabin is finished in Alcantara with red stitching.
