Evo Magazine’s Jethro Bovingdon is a resilient dude and doesn’t give in and go home just because the weather is not perfect for a road test. He was in Italy recently, expecting to test the new Ferrari 458 Speciale A (Aperta) in a lovely sunny day, only to be greeted by a monsoon.

It didn’t matter on bit to Jethro, though. Not only he continued with the test, he did with the roof open. Why? Because cars like this are all about fun and games, even if it means ruining that gorgeous interior!

So the purpose of Ferrari 458 Speciale A is to provide the same level of sharpness in performance that a hardtop Special delivers, but in a more dramatic alfresco style. In this video Evo answers if it is really worth considering the Aperta over a normal Special.
