2014 Ferrari 458 Spider
A true supercar
This highly specified example of Ferrari’s 458 Spider is proof of the concept that a true supercar can also be a convertible. Actually, the aluminium folding roof that Ferrari developed for the 458, while offering much greater security and comfort than a traditional cloth roof, actually weighs significantly less than that same soft-top.
Open top pleasure
Acceleration of the Spider was not blunted by the addition of the folding roof, and even though top-speed was down slightly on the Italia coupe variant, the Spider was still capable of a heady 320km/h in the right conditions.
Carbon fibre package
This car was originally specified with the complete Ferrari carbon-fibre package including the steering wheel and display centre, shift paddles, tachometer background and even the transmission tunnel. Other interior appointments include silver stitching and hand-stitched Cavallino logos in the headrests.
Luxury and convenience
Further luxury and convenience touches include red brake calipers, a reversing camera, parking sensors front and rear, diamond forged alloy wheels, a factory sports exhaust and a suspension lifter to help the car’s nose clear driveways and speed humps.
Bluetooth connectivity, front and side air-bags, stability-control, electronic brake-force distribution, remote central-locking, climate-control, bi-Xenon headlights, powered seats, navigation, active differential, 20-inch alloy wheels.
