The Ferrari 488 Spider is the latest car designed by Maranello’s collection of the V8 sports car. The 488 Spider has a fully convertible version of the spider architecture.
The Spider has set the new technological benchmark for the entire automobile sector.
At the heart of the Spider is a 3902cc turbo charged V8 engine which has also set a technological benchmark for the V8 design. The power unit is the highest performing engine with zero turbo lag and an exhilarating sound. The maximum power of the 488 Spider is 670 CV, and it has a smooth progressive torque delivery. With high gears the spider has fantastic performance figures, it sprints 0-100km/h in just 3 seconds, and it goes 0-200km/h in a flat 8.7 seconds.
Exterior and Interior
The aerodynamics of the 488 brilliantly reflects the drop-top which gives the car a sporty look. A short, muscular front wing fixed in the bumper immediately draws the eye and gives the front of the car a powerful look and speed. Another eye catching feature of the car is the flanks that feature the new air intakes of the car for the intercoolers.
Inspired by the Formula 1 philosophy, the cockpit of the 488 Spider is designed to create a seamless relationship between the driver with the car. The commands of the car are wrap around the satellite pods, angled directly towards the driver. The dashboard is a lighter and curved one that features sporty air vents.
Fuel Consumption and Emissions and Electronic Controls
The 488 Spider has a fuel consumption of 11.4 l/100 km, whereas the CO2 emission is about 260g/km. The electronic controls include the E-Diff3 with a high-performance ABS with Ferrari pre-fill.
The 488 Coupe is the latest mid-engine supercar which precedes the 4.5-liter V8. It is turbocharged with 3.9-liters V8, producing 660bhp and it goes 0-62 mph in flat 3 seconds. The bodywork of the car is beautiful, incorporating a various number of dynamics all influenced by the Formula 1. It creates a downforce which sticks the car to the corners of the road with razor sharp steering power and impressive brakes. It is a complete package.
