But you may want one anyhow.

When buying an import car, especially an Italian one, some of us may not know what all the terms actually mean. One thing that we do know is cars like the Ferrari 458 are breathtakingly beautiful and very powerful. The 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta you see here has just under 3,000 miles to the dash and is up for sale through Ferrari of San Francisco, CA.

Giallo 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta Needs No Translation

Let’s start at the very beginning. This is a drop-top version of the 458 Speciale, with “Aperta” meaning “open”. It’s finished in the stunning Giallo Triplo Strato paint which translates to “triple-layer yellow”. In other words, it’s a stunning pearlescent yellow paint that is hard to duplicate. It is further complemented by a Ferrari Blu Nart racing stripe.

The interior sports yellow accents with Blue Scuro (dark blue) carpets and options like the AFS system Alcantara headliner and Alcantara wheel arches. The headrests have the famous horse stitched on them in Giallo for a renowned appeal. Features include Homelink, an inn/out electric mirror, Radio-navigation system, heat-insulating windshield, parking camera, and front and rear parking sensors.  

On the exterior, this yellow beauty has matching dark blue brake calipers. There are plenty of carbon fiber goodies as well, like the engine covers, B-post, side nolders, and inner door sills. Large 20-inch forged diamond rims adorn this exotic with yellow Ferrari center caps.
