Finally! The Ferrari 458 Spider has crawled into the limelight at the Frankfurt International Auto Show! Its coupe cousin has literally blazed its way through headlines and amassed accolades along the way, but we have all secretly been clamoring for it to take its top off! Not that we have lost any love for our Ferrari 458 coupe rental…it remains fabulous, but once you have seen one car with its top off, you wanna see the rest!
Ferrari 458 Spider
The Ferrari 458 convertible is a mid-rear engine 2-seater with a fully retractable aluminum hard-top, making it a world first to feature this layout. It packs Ferrari’s 570 CV 4,499 cc V8 that won ‘International Engine of the Year’ for 2011 despite some initial fiery episodes (pun intended). If you somehow missed those, follow link to catch up on the Ferrari 458 explosions.
The 458 convertible dazzles in classic Ferrari red
The innovative hard-top on the Ferrari 458 spider is 25kg lighter than a traditional soft top, quitter and thermally superior. The best part is that it takes just 14 seconds to raise or drop and takes up a very small space when lowered.
The backside of this topless beauty is just as impressive, with a rear windscreen that doubles as an electrically adjustable wind-stop.
The 458 convertible also pops in bright yellow
The 458 convertible will arrive in Australia and New Zealand in mid 2012, and hopefully to our fleet of exotic convertible rentals asap, we cannot wait to drive and share this car!
