- Single ownership and just 145 km from new
- Virtually as-new throughout, ready to drive and enjoy
- Seldom-seen colour scheme of Giallo Modena over Rosso
Following in the footsteps of Ferrari’s brilliant 16M, the 458 Speciale A (short for Aperta), was introduced to the Ferrari lineup in 2014 as a limited-edition convertible sibling to the 458 Speciale Coupé, offering exhilarating performance and the thrill of open-air motoring coupled with the 458 Speciale’s glorious exhaust note.
Built for the 2015 model year and delivered new to Kuwait, this Ferrari 458 Speciale A is presented today in virtually as-new condition throughout and is certainly one of the lowest-mileage examples of its kind. Its bold colour combination of Giallo Modena with a Rosso Corsa and Nero stripe, Nero wheels, and Giallo-painted brake calipers certainly will attract attention wherever it goes. Inside, the theme continues: The car is trimmed in Rosso Alcantara with Giallo seat inserts, seat belts, tachometer, and contrasting Giallo stitching throughout, including the ‘Cavallino Rampante’ stitched on the headrests in Giallo.
Virtually identical to its closed sibling, the Speciale A only tips the scales at 110 lb heavier than the coupe. This is thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibre throughout the car. Furthermore, its aluminium retractable hardtop takes only 14 seconds to deploy or retract at the push of a button. Performance remains largely the same thanks to the car’s active aerodynamics, and it can sprint from 0–62 mph in three seconds and has a top speed of a tick below 200 mph.
Offered today from the collection of its first and only owner, it has been driven just 145 km from new. An exciting proposition for the individual who missed out on a 458 Speciale Aperta when new, these cars will surely go on to be coveted by collectors, as it is the last naturally aspirated ‘special-series’ mid-engined V-8 spider produced by Ferrari. With only 499 examples produced, it would certainly be difficult to find another with such low mileage in such a rare colour scheme.
