Breaking-neck speed, handsomeness factor to the nth power, oozing exoticness… lame descriptive words that doesn’t even meet half-way the actual 2016 Ferrari 488 Spider. For the hard-core, free-spirited speedsters, this is the car of their dreams.
While Spiders overflow with dynamism, they were considered inferior to their roofed counterparts. They may be less in every aspect compared to the hard-topped models, but one thing has taken aback even the strictest of critics: their maximum evolution, moving past the stage of their hard-topped counterparts.
Ferrari declared 3.0 seconds of start-up from mere nothing to 60 miles per hour. Thanks to the twin-turbocharged V8 as the very core of this beast—that and the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with manual shifting mode. The carmaker is not also ashamed to flaunt its vehicle response time of six-hundredths of a second, the span between making a steering input and car’s beginning to react. As for the issue of noise when the top goes down, the 488 Spider practically quieter than its predecessor and can be found growling when the top up rather down.
