Ferrari has carved the roof of its 488 Pista supercar, which gives the new model the Spider suffix in the process. 488 Pista Spider is the 50th convertible Ferrari ever introduced.
Visually, Spider looks much likeintroduced earlier this year. A wide, targeted body hugs the ground, with massive air inlet at the front, more inlets on the rear fender and bumper behind each seat. A central color block that goes down the length of the car is said to symbolize the movement of air over the convertible body. In order to keep the weight low, Ferrari installed aluminum plates instead of carpets and replaced internal door handles with the driver's side with a strap.
The interior of the car is as targeted as the coupe, with a minimalist centerpiece with just a few controls. The driver is a giant gulf-frequenced turteller posted by the color display. The car's steering wheel always has the engine stop switch, driving mode control and even the turn signal switch.
The power comes from a 3.9-liter V8 turbo, and as in the regular 488 it is rated for 71
Brake and handling elements transfer all of the coupé, and Ferrari 488 Pista Spider also benefits from the "Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer" software that uses brake intervention to help promote more smooth handling at the border. Among many alternatives, buyers can choose new carbon fiber wheels that are 20 percent lighter than corresponding alloy units.
