Several low-res images have surfaced the web showing what appears to be the Ferrari 458 Speciale Spider.

The model will likely go official in less than two weeks at the Paris Motor Show but it seems we are getting a sneak preview courtesy of a few screenshots from the configurator. Chances are a prospective buyer was fiddling around with the private configurator only shown to customers at a Ferrari dealership and someone decided to grab a few pics.

Production is believed to be capped at 458 units and all will feature a 4.5-liter V8 engine outputting 605 HP (445 kW) and 398 lb-ft (540 Nm) of torque. It should be enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in less than 3.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of more than 199 mph (320 km/h).

As you would expect, the Ferrari 458 Speciale Spider will command a premium over the fixed roof version which kicks off at $298,000.
