Ferrari 458 Spider: For Affluent Driving Enthusiasts

Ferrari 458 Spider

Designed as convertible version of the Ferrari 458 Italia, the Spider was revealed ahead of the 2011 Frankfurt International Motor Show, and we have to admit that it is too mouth-watering. The Italian sports car manufacturer says that the lightweight roof, which folds back in 14 seconds, leaves enough space for a rear luggage bench behind the two seats.

The 458 Spider is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine that puts out 570 horsepower and uses a seven-speed transmission to send power to the rear wheels. No word as yet on availability or pricing, but we’d expect the cost of entry to be close to $300,000. For full details on the Ferrari 458 Spider, click here.
