We are guessing that everybody has a secret love affair with one of Ferrari’s models. For those that are wowed by the Ferrari 458 Italia Spider, let us tell you a few things about this spectacular model.
The 458 Italia was first presented at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The model was inspired by the 575 Superamerica engineering-wise and according to Ferrari it is the first mid-engined convertible with a metal roof that folds. The roof (which is 25 kg lighter than the one on the F430 Spider) is easy to operate, it folds in 14 seconds and it packed really efficiently, not spoiling the car’s aerodynamics. It’s an exciting car to drive, especially when the roof is down because this way you can feel the engine and this makes the experience worthwhile.
The car is powered by a 4.5-litre V8 engine (562hp) that features a direct fuel injection. Te 458 Italia Spider goes from 0 to 62mph in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 198mph. The transmission has no manual option making it the first mainstream model that’s not offered with a manual transmission. What it does come with though is a dual-clutch 7-gear GETRAG gearbox.
The steering is quick and the car responds very well to direction changes. The cornering and acceleration are improved in comparison to its predecessors, thanks to the F1-Trac traction control systems.
Just like all the Ferrari models, the 458’s body was designed by Pininfarina and it has abit of an Enzo feel to it.
The interior has a modern feel to it and is very welcoming for the driver. You can sense the craftsmanship and the quality that has a big role to play in the interior cabin design. The windscreen wipers and headlight controls are placed on the steering wheel. The sat-nav is standard for this model but the carbonfibre seats only come as an option.
