2015 Ferrari 458 VS Spider leaks again ahead of its official debut

Article by Christian A., on September 22, 2014

This weekend, the first images with the 458 Speciale Spider emerged on the Web but today, the first photos with the real car were released by Cars and Business on its Facebook page. As you may know already, the vehicle will be called Ferrari VS Spider and the vehicle you see in the photos was actually the one unveiled at the private event, which took place back in August at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Last week, our Maranello-based source confirmed the official debut of the brand new VS Spider at the 2104 Paris Motor Show, which means that sooner or later Ferrari will reveal the official details and specs of its new car. What we know so far is that the 458 VS Spider will be powered by the same 4.5-liter V8 engine found on the 458 Speciale and capable to deliver 605 hp at 9,000 rpm and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm.

The coupe version accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.1 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 200 mph or 320 km/h. According to our sources, the 458 VS Spider will be priced at 216,000 before taxes, which makes it a little more expensive than the 458 Speciale.

As you can see from the photos, the vehicle is actually identical with the 458 Speciale, but the 458 VS Spider will offer a new stripe design and two new wheels design. Inside, there are newly design seats, carbon floor mats and two numbered plaques that underline the limited edition of the car.

And speaking of limited edition, Ferrari was supposed to offer only 458 units of the VS Spider but taking in consideration that Ferrari Chaiman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo will step down, things might change.

He will be replaced by Sergio Marchionne and he will gradually increase production at Ferrari, despite the fact that Montezemolo wanted to build only 7,000 units per year in order to preserve the brand’s uniqueness.

Just like the 458 Spider, the new VS Spider will offer the removable hard top, which is capable to retract in just 14 seconds. Due to the addition of the new hard top, the see-through engine bonnet will not be seen on the spider version.
