First Ferrari Speciale A Sells For INR 5.5 Crores

Written By:

Ferrari recently celebrated its 60th year in the US in Beverly Hills. During this big party, the Italian manufacturer unveiled the Ferrari F 60 America, an ultra exclusive convertible, of which only 10 units will be made.

Along with this, Ferrari also unveiled the first 458 Speciale A, which was auctioned out. The buyer, David Gooding, bought the car for a whopping USD 900,000!

The money will be donated to "Daybreak," the American branch of the Italian charity whose aim is to advance research towards a cure for rare genetic diseases.

The Ferrari Speciale A will be powered by what could be Ferrari's last ever naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 engine that produces a massive 597 hp and 540 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm.

The Speciale A convertible sprints to 62 mph from a standstill in three seconds flat, which is 0.4 seconds quicker than a stock 458 Spider on which it is based.

Introduced two weeks ago during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the limited-edition 458 Speciale Aperta is one of the most aerodynamic Ferraris ever built by the Italian car manufacturer.

Ferrari is to build only 499 units of the Speciale A, which makes it a limited edition car, though it certainly won't be priced as high as what it sold for during the auction.
