HRE Wheels’ portfolio is chockfull of sports and super cars, as you would expect from a high-end wheel maker. But if you count the number of really special cars they have worked on, no other brand can even come close. This one-of-a-kind Ferrari 458 Aperta is a classic case in point.
These days, and thanks to Ferrari’s Tailor Made program, it really isn’t surprising to see custom, one-off models roaming around because, well, every single Ferrari that comes out is a one-off model. But you can still be surprised by the way the owner has personalized his or her car. It’s a matter of personal taste and preference, but some people just get it so right.
This silver Ferrari 458 Aperta certainly fits the bill as one that has been gotten very, very right. For starters, you don’t see that many 458s in this elegant and prestigious color. Then there is the black and red stripe which is what really makes this car unique. And of course we have the matte black wheels and all the exposed carbon fiber garnish, each playing a major role.
Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta is such a rare and interesting car, it would have been a great sight covered in dog dirt. They’ve only made 499 units and they are commanding mahoosive price tags these days. Mechanically, the car is identical to the hardtop Speciale with a 605 horsepower V8 engine.
