Ferrari 488 Spider

Overview

The Ferrari 488 Spider is the latest chapter in Maranello’s ongoing history of opentop V8 sports cars, a story that started with the targa - top version of the 308 GTB – the immortal 308 GTS- and which ultimately resulted in the full convertible Spider architecture.

Starting with the RHT (Retractable Hard Top) around which the entire car was developed, every area of the 488 Spider has been designed to set new technological benchmarks for the sector. The result is the most powerful and innovative Ferrari Spider ever built, a car that combines the extraordinary power of the 488 GTB coupe’s mid-rear V8 with the joy of tackling even the most challenging roads surrounded by nature’s aromas and colors and accompanied by an inimitable Ferrari engine soundtrack.

The 488 Spider’s dynamic behavior is exceptional with the accent very much on the ease with which it can be driven on the limit. To achieve this engaging handling balance the mechanical set-up was honed in tandem with the electronic systems which now include the evolved version of Ferrari’s side slip angle control system (Side Slip Control 2-SSC2). Overall, in fact response times are 9% more rapid than the previous Spider.
