Overview

Ferrari is known to produce one of the finest, most powerful cars in the world. The Italian automaker introduced the Ferrari 488 as an update to its 458 range, with notable exterior changes and better performance. One of the most notable cars of the 488 series, the Ferrari Spider 488 made its debut in the Malaysian market in 2015. It’s the most powerful mid-rear-engine V8 car to feature the patented retractable hard top along with the highest level of technological innovation and cutting-edge design. Just like all the previous spider versions, the Ferrari 488 Spider aims at people who are looking for an open-air motoring pleasure in a high-performance sports car. Visually, the exterior is pretty much similar to its coupe sibling, however, there are some design differences like the exclusion of the roof. The car features an RHT (retractable hard top), which weighs 25kg less than an equivalent soft-top setup. This is also the most aerodynamically efficient Ferrari Spider ever built, owing to a series of complex aero solutions designed to guarantee optimal downforce. The interiors are plush and premium, with all the controls within a hand’s reach. There’s an endless scope to personalise the 488 Spider, of course at a handsome fee. It is available in 10 distinct colour schemes - Giallo Modena, Verde British, Blue Abu Dhabi, Grigio Silverstone, Rosso Corsa, Rosso Mugello, Grigio Alloy, Nero Daytona, Rosso Dino and Nero Ds 1250. The Ferrari 488 Spider retails at RM 1.2 million (excluding taxes and duties).

Interior & Features

The cockpit of the 488 Spider remains unchanged from the GTB. Previously, Ferrari interiors were mostly made of plastic, however, that’s not the case in the 488 Spider. The Spider features top quality materials and a vast range of customizations are on offer too. The steering wheel mounted controls may take a bit of time to get accustomed to, but in general, the ergonomics are excellent. The seats are supportive, maintains a good posture while driving and are super comfortable. The Spider does offer an electronically operated metal roof that gives the cabin a far more open feel. There’s not much space in the front trunk, but the Ferrari luggage set does make the most of the restricted cargo area.

Exterior

It is designed to be the most ergonomically efficient Ferrari ever to be designed. Several innovative devices, including a blown spoiler and an aerodynamic underbody incorporating vortex generators were incorporated to enhance the ergonomics of the 488 Spider. The car features Retractable Hard Top, which weighs 25 kg less than an equivalent soft-top setup. The folding unit puts away in two overlapping sections, with the entire assembly wedged between the mid-mounted engine and the seats. It occupies only 100 litres of space when folded. The retraction or deployment of the RHT only takes 14 seconds, and it can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 45 kmph. Also unique to the Spider is a small rear window that offers three stages of operation when the top is lowered to reduce wind buffering.

 

Ride & Handling

The handling of the 488 Spider is very impressive. Adaptive dampers and a well-honed SCM 3 magnetorheological suspension control system make the 488 Spider perform exceptionally, both on a race track and along the coastline. The steering has a very quick ratio and the engine is also very responsive. The drive and ride quality is not much affected even as you ride with an open top.

 

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Powering the 488 Spider is a 3,902cc, 3.9-litres, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 670PS at 8,000rpm and 760Nm of peak torque at 3,000 rpm. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 488 Spider sprints from 0 to 100kmph in just 3 seconds flat and from 0 to 200kmph in 8.7 seconds. This is also an exceptionally efficient engine as it is not only 100PS more powerful than the previous naturally-aspirated V8, but also has lower CO2 emissions. The turbo V8 engine delivers increasing levels of power across the rev range and eliminates the traditional turbo lag. The throttle response time is just 0.8 seconds.

Braking & Safety

Braking setup consists of dual-discs at both ends with ABS. Other safety features include stability control, front-impact airbags, side impact airbags, ability to anticipate and /or detecting unwanted vehicle intrusion, ignition disable device etc.

Verdict

The best features from the 488 GTB have been adopted in the 488 Spider, plus the open-topped driving option. The engine and chassis are still one of the sharpest combinations around and only a few rivals can come close to it. If you have this hefty amount of cash to spend, go for it.

    Charlie Nov 27, 2019 for Ferrari 488 Spider

    In my opinion, the Ferrari 488 Spider is easily the best looking convertible supercar that the Italian marque has ever crafted. There is a certain great sense of curvaceousness in the Ferrari 488 Spider which is highly likeable and makes it this desirable. The even better part of the Ferrari 488 Spider is the open top motoring experience, which gets Read More
