The new 458 Spider offers an open-air experience for those who prefer the warm California breeze in their hair and love the sound of the smooth Ferrari exhaust. Similar to the Ferrari 458 Italia coupe, the Spider has a 4.5 liter mid-mounted V8 engine that shifts through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission – a technological tour de force that drives like an automatic but is faster than a manual. The Spider can skyrocket to 62 mph in less than 3.4 seconds thanks to the V8 cranking out 562 horsepower at 9,000 RPM.
The Spider’s exterior features were designed for aerodynamic efficiency while the interior was designed with input from Michael Schumacher, the world-renowned, seven-time world champion Ferrari Formula 1 driver. It was designed to be Ferrari’s sportiest V8-engined car, drawing inspiration from the Ferrari Enzo and the Millechili concept car.
In addition to its luxurious look, sleek design and impressive engine, the 2014 458 Spider comes equipped with an array of convenience, safety and entertainment features, some of which include:
● Automatic climate control
● Power seats with memory function
● Tilt steering wheel
● Brembo carbon-ceramic antilock brakes
● F1-Trac Control traction control system
● Dual front impact airbags
● Engine immobilizer
● Electronic stability
● Traction control
● AM/FM radio, CD player and iPod connection
