Did you like the 458 Speciale? Then you'll love the A version – A for aperta, Italian for 'open'. Apart from losing the hard top, the A retains everything that made its predecessor so successful – 605hp, 4.5-litre, V8 engine, breath-taking looks etc. – and Ferrari is manufacturing 499 instead of only 458!
