Ferrari 458 Spider

Ferrari’s exclusive new 8-cylinder 458 Spider is the first and unique mid-rear engine with a retractable hard top. 

Powered by Ferrari’s 562 hp 4499 cc V8, which was named International Engine of the Year 2011, the 458 Spider is coupled with Ferrari’s class-leading dual-clutch F1 paddle-shift transmission, delivers 0-62 mph acceleration in less than 3.4 seconds and has a maximum speed of 199 mph.

Description

The latest addition to the Ferrari range is a mid-rear-engine two-seater featuring a fully retractable aluminum hard-top, a world first for a sports car with this layout. The 458 Spider’s innovative new hard-top is 25 kg lighter than a traditional folding soft-top and quieter; it takes only 14 seconds to open or close and has been engineered to increase aerodynamic efficiency. A rear bench allows hosting luggage behind the seats thanks to the reduced space needed to house the roof.

New chassis technical innovations guarantee identical levels of structural rigidity with the roof up or down. The result is a car that is truly exciting to drive, blending extreme performance with the responsiveness that has always characterized Ferrari’s open-top berlinettas.

Class-leading fuel consumption and emissions levels are guaranteed thanks to the optional HELE (High Emotion Low Emission) system.
