Ferrari 488 Spider
$272,700
The 488 Spider is the open-top version of the powerful Ferrari 488 GTB. Since the debut of the 308 GTB in the 1970s, Ferrari has offered a V8-powered mid-engine 2-seat sports car and an open-top version since the targa-top 308 GTS. The 488 GTB and 488 Spider continue that tradition, powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 engine that produces 660 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque, teamed with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The Spider’s power-retractable hardtop operates in 14 seconds, with two panels stowed behind the seats. The electric glass rear window can be placed in three different positions with the top up or down. Acceleration is extreme — 62 mph comes up in a mere 3 seconds, 124 mph in 8.7 seconds with a top speed exceeding 200 mph. Driving dynamics are enhanced by F1-Trac traction control, E-Diff 3 electronic differential, SSC2 side slip angle control and Magnetorheological suspension control.
