Ferrari current flagship supercar, the 458 Italia, has been a major success to the Italian marque. With universal acclaim and praises from all motoring journalists around the world, this is perhaps one of Ferrari’s most beautiful and best cars ever created. There’s always something special with convertible supercars, and now Ferrari has unleashed the 458 Italia Spider, set to be revealed at Frankrut Motorshow in Germany in few weeks time.
The Ferrari Italia 458 Spider
First impression, the word “beautiful” is perhaps an understatement, and I felt this looks much better than the already stunning coupe. The mid engined supercar will share the similar 4.5cc V8 direct injection engine with 560 BHP with double clutch gearbox with the coupe version. Maybe expect some slight increase on the weight department which is typical with most convertibles. But I guess you will forgive the extra weight and be mesmerized by how the retractable hardtop works like a beauty.
3 mighty Tremors, ops i mean exhausts of Italian Passion and Performance!
The engineers from Maranello has crafted an amazing mechanism on the hardtop which works almost similarly with Ferrari California, hence you might feel the Spider will look similar with the coupe when the hardtop is on. No word on how the car will perform but seeing how Maranello has almost perfected the supercar genre with the 458 Italia, expect they do the same too on the Spider.
Here’s the video and be sure to check how the retractable hardtop works on this car. I bet by the time the video ends, you will feel like you just had a “crisis“. I just did.
