The Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta is not exactly the kind of supercar you'd like to subject to a modification treatment. Still, nobody said we can't have some prancing fun in the virtual world, so we've brought you a rendering that takes this Maranello creation to an entirely different appearance level.
The spider incarnation of the 458's track-friendly version has been given an extra-wide look. The rendering comes from digital artist Jon Sibal, who has decided to gift the car with a Liberty Walk body kit.

The wheels, which show some of the most generous lips we've seen in a while, were introduced to take this look even deeper, so we can say the stance of this Ferrari has been dramatically changed.

In fact, especially if we looked at the arch sides of the Fezza, the image reminds us of the Pagani Zonda's posture. Not the contemporary Huayra, not a Lamborghini (Horacio Pagani used to work for the Raging Bull), but that violently romantic Zonda.

Why so special?

Before we let you dig deeper into the image, we want to remind you why a 458 Speciale Aperta is best left untouched. For one thing, this is the last Montezemolo Ferrari.

Ferrari's top man has now left the company after an internal dispute with FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne and we see the Prancing Horse entering a new era.

This is a time when Ferrari is going public, with the carmakers also returning to forced induction in order to comply with future emission regulations. This is where the 488 GTB and the recently-launched 488 Spider enter the arena, but this is another story for another time.

And besides, Ferrari is only building 499 units of the car, just as it's doing with the LaFerrari.

The 488 SA, which, together with the 458 Speciale, owe a lot to their naturally aspirated V8. Delivering 605 hp, the 4.5-liter engine offers the greatest specific power (naturally aspirated) in the production car world.

The Speciale will rewrite the rules of throttle steering in your book, but remember, you have to be up for the job.
