The pinnacle of drop-top driving pleasure, the 488 Spider continues the legend of the mid-engined, open-top V8 Ferrari.
Every surface is precisely sculpted to maximise performance and road-holding. This, coupled with Ferrari’s experience on the racing track, means the 488 Spider is blessed with supreme downforce for stunning handling.
Its dynamic behaviour is exceptional, with a surprisingly supple and comfortable ride married with sharp turn-in. Electronic innovations work in tandem with the mechanical set-up, including the latest version of Ferrari’s Side Slip Control system.
The 488 Spider is the most powerful Ferrari Spider ever built. A ferocious, 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine sits behind you and produces a phenomenal 661bhp. This brilliant piece of engineering has zero turbo lag for instantaneous power delivery, accelerating to 60mph in three seconds flat.
The innovative Variable Torque Management system ensures smooth and progressive torque delivery in the higher gears.Power is transmitted to the road with the help of a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox, with Formula 1-style paddles. That leaves your hands free to grip the race-inspired steering wheel, feeling every inch of the road as the forgiving chassis encourages you to press on.
The 488 Spider was developed around its Retractable Hard Top, which stows invisibly behind the cabin to flood your driving experience with the sights and aromas of nature – and the intoxicating soundtrack of its engine.
The 488 Spider’s simple and elegant cabin is an intimate affair, lovingly crafted by experts. Its seats are beyond compare, with a cosseting, low-slung position. Forward visibility is second-to-none, and every detail of the cabin can be tailored to your personal tastes.
Safety through technology
The 488 Spider shares the hard-top 488 GTB’s technology, engineered to make driving on the limit as easy as possible. It is fitted with Ferrari’s latest E-Diff and F1-Trac traction control systems, which ensure your enjoyment is not blunted while making things manageable.
Befitting a luxurious, premium sports car, the 488 Spider’s infotainment system is designed to ensure you can focus on the business of driving. Satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth technology are all housed around a screen set in the instrument binnacle, keeping your eyes closer to the road.
