File this one under car you will probably never see in person. More than simply a convertible version of the Speciale, it is actually 110 lbs lighter than the coupe. Production was limited to 499 cars, and they are the swan song for Ferrari’s naturally aspirated 4.5L V8. Stretching the limits of what a V8 can produce without the help of turbos or a supercharger, the engine masters at Maranello used technology from the Formula1 team to extract every last ounce of power. It revs to 9,000 to unlock 597 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. A compression ratio of 14:1 requires only the best fuel, but your reward is an amazing soundtrack from the exhaust.
Evidently someone couldn’t handle the power, because this Ferrari Certified example at Foreign Cars Italia of Greensboro, NC was brought in with only 392 miles clocked on its odometer. As usual with collector cars of this nature, it was ordered with a plethora of options. White with a black interior, it has AFS headlights, carbon fiber rocker panels, center caps, titanium exhaust and embroidered headrests.
