The Ferrari 488 Spider hardtop V8 sports car offers true driving pleasure, delivering 660 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 561 pd ft of torque at 6,750 rpm. Reaching a top speed of 203 miles per hour, this prancing horse roars with a unique and glorious soundtrack. Being the most aerodynamic spider, featuring the F1 inspired double spoiler and innovative vortex generating underbody, this classic mid rear engine Ferrari effortlessly combines innovation with tradition. The fierce design and blistering performance of the 488 GTB (Gran Turismo Berlinetta) transforms into a convertible in a record 14 seconds.

The 488 Spider replaces the 458 Spider in the Ferrari lineup. The renowned Ferrari 3.9 liter V8 twin turbo engine is part of the engine family that was awarded International Engine of the Year in both 2016 and 2017. This power unit is the most high performance engine ever with zero turbo lag. Constructed to offer blistering performance combined with high revs, razor-sharp responsiveness, and powerful acceleration at all speeds. The Variable Torque Management system provides a progressive torque delivery in higher gears. The steering response times are 9% faster than the previous spider thanks to the evolution of the Side Slip Angle Control System.

The Ferrari Styling Center started with a Retractable Hard Top (RHT) and set new technological benchmarks. The muscular creases along the body form resemble the 308GTB by taking the scallops on the door leading to the new side air intakes. The front of the car creates a sense of power and speed and is characterized by a single grille opening. Enhancing the open air driving experience, the 488 Spider debuted a new color called Blu Corsa to blend with the sky. Constructed from 11 different aluminum alloys, the 488 Spider’s chassis is 20 percent more rigid than the 458 Spider’s.

The interior cockpit is inspired by Ferrari’s Formula 1 cars, creating a seamless relationship between car and driver. The 488 Spider features a keyless start by pressing the Start/Stop Engine button on the steering wheel. The sporty and luxurious leather seats have a fixed headrest. Typical Ferrari traits of multifunctional steering wheel, control bridge tunnel and separation of dashboard are all seen on the 488 Spider. Drivers can appreciate the numerous impressive features and technology, starting with the 10.2” infotainment touchscreen display system, integrated Apple CarPlay and various other functionalities.

The Ferrari 488 Spider improvements are seen in mechanical efficiency, internal dynamics and aerodynamics. The result is an aerodynamic efficiency figure of 1.53, setting a new record for a Ferrari production Spider. The aerodynamic underbody with vortex generators accelerate air, reduce pressure, and generate downforce. The latest evolution of the ESP (Electronic Stability Program) guarantees even more efficient ABS intervention in low-grip situations. The patented blown rear spoiler allows air to enter from the base of the rear window through a slot that exits above the license plate to deliver downforce. The rear diffuser on the 488 Spider features variable flap geometry controlled by a CPU, integrated with other vehicle control systems which optimize the expansion of air channeled under the car. Everything works together to minimize drag and maximize downforce. The 488 Spider also incorporates the Brembo Extreme Design brakes which are the most efficient ever developed by Ferrari and also found on the LaFerrari.
