Since the launch of the Ferrari 458 in 2011, there has been an absolute onslaught of Ferrari 458’s coming from the Ferrari plant in Modena, Italy. This V8 beast has become the standard fare for exotic car owners, musicians and business executives worldwide. In 2016, Ferrari decided to produce 499, very special, limited production variations, which they rightfully deemed the “Aperta.” Based on the 458 Speciale, the Aperta is the spyder version, outputting 650 horsepower and 0-60 times of 3 seconds flat.
For SEMA 2015, Giovanna Wheels took delivery of the very first Aperta, which we fitted with our brand new GFG Forged FM-866 wheels. The split-spoke, 2-piece design, complemented the aggressive 458 Aperta styling perfectly. For fitment, we went with a staggered 21 inch front / 22 inch rear wheel setup wrapped in Pirelli P-zero tires. There are thousands of finish options available on our GFG Forged Wheels. We went with a new technique where the wheel is brushed and then powder-coated, giving a machined stainless look. We couldn’t decide on the color, so, one side of our Ferrari Aperta has brushed satin bronze wheels and the other has a brushed candy red finish.
