Ferrari Reveals Its 458 Speciale A.


ferrari-458-speciale-a-front

The convertible version of Ferrari’s hardcore 458 Speciale has been revealed, and it’s called the 458 Speciale A (A as in Aperta).  The car will be the most powerful road-going Spider in its illustrious history and will be getting the same engine as the hardtop Speciale.  So that means a naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 with 597bhp spinning the rear wheels via a seven-speed twin-clutch semi-automatic gearbox.  That means a 0-100km/h time of 3 seconds, a 0-200km/h time of 9.5 seconds and a top speed that will be north of 200mph (321km/h). And all without a turbo or supercharger helping out.

Its folding metal roof can be dropped almost as quickly (14 sec) and is unique to this model. The standard 458 Italia Spider has a fabric soft top.  However one thing the standard convertible boasts that this doesn’t is an exposed engine bay. This car’s rear has been redesigned to accommodate the folding aluminum mechanism but it still looks just as dramatic.  Inside the cabin will get exclusive carbon fiber trim and other details to mark it out from other 458 cars, and there will also be a prominently placed plaque that lists the number of awards that the 458′s engine has scooped during its lifetime.  Just 499 examples of the limited-edition Ferrari will be produced.  The Speciale A will be in France to kick off the Paris Motor Show, which commences October 4th.

E.A.S.Y. is the new collaboration between DC Area’s Enferno and NYC’s Shiftee. Both former DMC Champions and artists in their own right, Enferno and Shiftee have come together as E.A.S.Y. to start a paradigm shift in the way we think about DJs and live performance.  In their #LiveRemix parody of Andy Samberg’s SNL skit “WHEN WILL THE BASS DROP,” E.A.S.Y. pokes fun at the current “press play” DJ culture before busting out a new original track “Fly Away.” The video showcases their next level turntablism skills and musicianship, but also highlights their stylistic direction and future bass wig wearing ability.

You probably don’t realize it, but you’ve been cooking inefficiently. We’re not talking the funky way you cut an onion or the lack of prep before starting a recipe, we’re talking about the pots and pans on your stove top. Flare Pans were designed with the help of Dr. Tom Povey, a rocket scientist from Oxford, in an effort to help you cook faster and better. Each pan allows the heat from the burner to be distributed evenly across the base and sides which will cook your food faster (44% faster) while using less energy and without burning or scorching the food around the edge. They belong on wedding registries everywhere.

The annual gathering of yacht connoisseurs came to a close in Monaco over the weekend, with the prestigious Rina Green Plus prize going to a new mega-yacht from Italian manufacturer Benetti.  The 55-meter boat, presented in a world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show, was recognized as the year’s leading example of yacht constructors’ efforts to reduce the carbon footprints of their vessels. The prize is awarded based on the criteria set out by Rina, a marine services company, in its Green Plus certification label, which encourages all manufacturers to produce more eco-friendly boats.  Among the innovative and green technologies aboard the Ocean Paradise is a system that reabsorbs greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit their dispersion in the marine environment. Benetti used a brand new coating on the hull of the yacht, reducing resistance in the water and thus enhancing fuel efficiency. The boat is lit with next-generation LED lights, also an optimal choice for energy efficiency.
