The 458 Spider is the first car ever to combine a mid-rear engine with a retractable folding hard top that delivers both unprecedented in-cabin comfort when closed and unparalleled Spider performance.
A story that changes with the times but which also continues a glorious tradition founded in great part on fabulous open-top cars designed for hot sunny days: Spiders, Cabriolets and Barchettas.
All cars that are spectacularly wonderful to drive because having just the open sky above you as you grip the wheel has a unique and truly unforgettable emotional impact: hearing the engine’s soundtrack, feeling the car’s speed, having the perfumes of the world swirl around you.
The Ferrari 458 Spider offers a whole new set of emotions and adds a genuine sense of sportiness and power to weekend trips a deluxe.
A clever mix of sounds supplied by the car’s 570 horse power incorporates just the right notes, turning it into music to your ears: music that acts as a brilliant soundtrack not only to the pleasure of driving a Prancing Horse car but in-car chat.
