Being a Ferrari, the 458 Spider offers one of the best in class exteriors. Its aerodynamic stability and aesthetically pleasing exteriors makes Ferrari a priced possession only for the privileged to possess. Its key update is the retractable hardtop, which opens up and fits in the space behind the front seats. The distinctive headlamps blend in the bonnet seamlessly.

The Ferrari is known for its sports car features in terms of interiors which instill the spirit of racing and responsibility in its drivers. The interiors feature a traditional sport steering with driving controls such as engine start, wireless controls, etc. The sports steering is complemented with paddle shifters, which give a perfect setup for racing experience.

The Engine of the 458 Spider is a 570-CV, naturally aspirated 4.5-litre V8 petrol engine that follows a direct injection method increasing the engine performance, while partly fiddling with its mileage. The engine offers a displacement of 4499 cc. When an engine of such high capacity is placed to deliver at speeds exceeding 300 Kmph, the performance in terms of side effects such as vibrations, sound caused, etc., remain a concern.

In comparison to the Bugatti Veyron and the Lamborghini Aventador, the Ferrari 458 Spider offers its passengers a smoother ride and excellently carved dynamics.

Our Verdict

The Ferrari 458 Spider is a convertible coupe that was a combination of many masterful elements placed in it. It is definitely even more expensive than most other Ferrari siblings. It offered one of the greatest driving experiences in a Ferrari. Though a convertible, it was breaking away from typical Ferrari tradition that is the roof wasn’t a soft one, but a folding metal roof. Interestingly, the roof folded into two parts and stayed in place neatly settling below the engine cover. And the car’s mechanism was so uniquely packaged that luggage could be placed on the shelf to add to the front boot spacing.
