A new report indicates Ferrari will introduce the 458 Speciale Spider later this month at Pebble Beach.

4WheelsNews has apparently been contacted by a source from Maranello who said Ferrari will unveil an open-top Spider derivative of the 458 Speciale during this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It is believed Ferrari has already opened the order books for the model which could end up being a limited edition, just like they did with the 430 16M Scuderia Spider which was built in only 499 examples.

Power will come from the same 4.5-liter V8 engine delivering 605 PS (445 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft). Performance levels will be basically the same as in the 458 Speciale so expect the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) task to take 3 seconds while the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) run will be done in 9.1 seconds, en route to a top speed of around 202 mph (325 km/h).

The Ferrari 458 Speciale Spider will probably be revealed on August 17 so "leaks" could occur several days from now.
