458 Spider is Ferrari's Way of Open-top Enjoyment

The 2014 458 Spider costs $257,412, which is about $25,000 more than the coupe.

The 458 Spider continues the long tradition of Ferrari mid-engined V8 convertibles and is the first mid-engined model to feature a folding hard-top combining performance and style perfectly.

The Ferrari 458 Spider's innovative new hard-top is not only 55 lb (25 kg) lighter than a traditional folding soft-top, but is also quieter and thermally more efficient when raised. Aside from taking just 14 seconds to open or close, the hard-top was engineered to occupy a very small space when stored so that the designers were able to include a generous rear bench for luggage behind the two seats.

The rear windscreen doubles as an effective wind-stop which is electrically adjustable. When the hard-top is folded away the wind-stop opens to the height that guarantees the most efficient aerodynamics, reducing buffeting in the cockpit.

The 2014 458 Spider is powered by Ferrari's 570-horsepower 4.5L V8 engine which was named International Engine of the Year in 2011 and 2012. This is coupled with Ferrari's class-leading dual-clutch F1 paddle-shift transmission which delivers 0 to 60 mph acceleration in under 3.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).

The all-aluminum chassis incorporates new alloys and castings, also adopted on the coupé, which ensure the 458 Spider already conforms to 2020 safety legislation.

The 458 Spider's leading alternative is the McLaren MP4-12C Spider.
