The @Ferrari #488Spider #convertible has been revealed!! WATCH THE VIDEO
Ferrari just took the wraps off of the Ferrari 488 Spider , the latest masterpiece by the legendary Italian marque. Touted as the most powerful mid-rear-engine-mounted car to sport a retractable hard top (Ferrari was the first manufacturer to introduce the feature on a spider with the Ferrari California ), the new Ferrari 488 Spider convertible crushes any performance concerns as it travels zero to 62 mph in a sizzling 3 seconds and can reach 124 mph in 8.7 seconds. The monster powering this machine is the same roaring 3.9-liter, turbocharged V-8 found in the Ferrari 488 GTB , which was released a few months ago. Producing a maximum torque of 760 Nm at 3,000 rpm, the engine is not only more powerful than its predecessor but also produces lower emissions and has a reduced throttle response time of only 0.8 seconds. Taming the titan is a 7-speed, F/1 dual-clutch transmission.
