Today, Ferrari uploaded their official video for the brand new 458 Speciale Aperta. This video shows off the finer details of the car and even shows the retractable hardtop in action. Check it out above to see more of the new 458 Speciale A.
The drop-top conversion for this new model was made possible through an aluminum retractable hardtop. Thanks to the top’s lightweight construction, Ferrari made the weight difference between the Speciale and Speciale coupe just 110 lbs. Drivers can deploy or retract this top in only 14 seconds.
