If you thought Ferrari would be hardpressed to top the Ferrari 488 GTB, think again. The Italian luxury automobile brand has unveiled the Ferrari 488 Spider, a sleek ride that gives you the option to cruise top-down with a retractable hard-top. Heading to the upcoming 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show? You'll get a chance to view the model upclose.
Pictured here in the new Blu Corsa livery, the retractable hard-top has the ability to obliterate more wind and noise than a traditional soft-top. The only sound it doesn't blot out is the inviting purr of the engine – the unmistakable hallmark of the Italian supercar.
The Ferrari 488 Spider also comes with a mid-rear turbo-charged V8 that propels the car from 0 to 100km/h in three seconds flat. Most notably, the engine manages to transcend turbo lag by delivering increasing levels of power across the rev range.
A new spaceframe chassis fashioned from 11 different aluminium alloys ensures the same torsional rigidity and beam stiffness you'll find in the 488 GTB coupé. New aerodynamic solutions such as a blown spoiler and underbody vortex generator help to trim off unwanted drag from the Spider, making it Ferrari's most aerodynamically efficient spider to date.
