Ferrari 488 Spider V8
Ferrari has released some details of a new midengined convertible – the most powerful the company has ever made.
The low-slung supercar is the new Ferrari 488 Spider, an open-top V8 due to make its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month before hitting the streets next summer.
Its 3,902cc engine, the same unit featured in recently unveiled stablemate the 488 GTB, delivers a whopping 660bhp at 8,000rpm.
And its performance figures are stunning – 0-62 in exactly three seconds and on to 124mph in a fleeting 8.7 seconds.
The power is delivered via a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission and claimed fuel consumption is 24.7 miles per gallon.
The Spider experience comes courtesy of a folding hard top similar to that on its predecessor, the 458.
