The Ferrari 488 Spider is the latest open-top V8 sports cars in Maranello's history, a history started with the targa-top version of the 308 GTB - the 308 GTS - and which culminated in the full convertible Spider architecture.
This is the most powerful and innovative Ferrari Spider built to date, a car that combines the extraordinary prowess of the 488 GTB coupe's mid-rear V8 with the joy of tackling even the most challenging roads surrounded by the aromas and colors of the environment and accompanied by the inimitable Ferrari engine soundtrack. 
The entire car was developed around the RHT (Retractable Hard Top) and every area of the Ferrari 488 Spider was designed to set new technological benchmarks. At the very heart of the car is the 3902cc turbo-charged V8 awarded as 2016 International Engine Of The Year. Thanks to a maximum power output of 670 CV and smooth, progressive torque delivery in higher gears by the Variable Torque Management system, the 488 Spider sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds flat and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.7 seconds.

The choice of a rigid hard top was essential to the character of the new Ferrari, guaranteeing a significant improvement in in-car comfort. The RHT was a world first for a mid-rear-engined car when introduced on the 458 Spider, providing superb drop-top driving pleasure.

Powertrain:

The 3902 cc power unit is Ferrari's most powerful performance engine ever made with zero turbo lag and a unique, seductive soundtrack. It delivers 670 cv at 8,000 rpm with a specific power output of 172 cv/l. The maximum torque of 760 Nm in seventh gear and a throttle response time of just 0.8 seconds at 2000 rpm in third gear. The 488 GTB sprints from 0-62 mph in 3 seconds flat and from 0-124 mph in 8.3 seconds with cylinder heads and roller finger followers to reduce the power absorbed by the valve train at 10 percent lower revs thanks to reduced friction. The use of flat-plane crankshaft architecture guarantees maximum compactness, lower mass and helps improve the engine's internal fluid-dynamics.

Aerodynamics:


With an aerodynamic efficiency figure of 1.53 the Ferrari 488 Spider sets a new record for a Ferrari production Spider.
The front of the car is dominated by the central Aero Pillar and an F1-inspired double spoiler. The Aero Pillar manages the air flows striking the front of the car and distributing them along both the longitudinal and transverse plane.
The innovative aerodynamic under-body incorporates vortex generators, special curved aerodynamic appendages which accelerate the air thereby reducing pressure. The result is that the under-body is "sucked" down to the ground and down-force is higher but drag is not. The front section of the under-body is flat, generating down-force and pushing the car lower to the ground whilst minimizing the impact on the flow arriving at the front strakes.
The large rear diffuser has curved fences, optimizing the expansion of the air channeled under the car. It features also variable flap geometry controlled by a CPU, integrated with other vehicle control systems.
The blown spoiler is a new Ferrari-patented solution: air enters the intake at the base of the rear screen and exits via the bumper. This geometry is boosting down-force while avoiding having to extend the height of the rear spoiler, thus keeping drag low.
The base bleed air intakes on the sides of the car are divided by a central flap: the flow over the upper part of the flap is used for the engine air intake and it exits from the tail area, further reducing drag.


Style:

The Ferrari 488 Spider has been designed by the Ferrari Design Center, featuring new styling honed around its aerodynamic requirements, reflecting drop-top driving pleasure, sportiness and performance. Proportions are typical of a Ferrari mid-rear-engine sports car: a short muscular front wing into which the bumper is wedged, lending the whole front of the car a sense of power and speed, drawing the eye to to flanks featuring new side air intakes for the intercooler. The motif of the crease line that forms the scallops on the door leading to the intakes is a nod to the 308 GTB.
At the front a characteristic single grille opening and the bonnet has a pronounced, raised central section with two side channels that channel air from the two vents in the bumper. 
The engine cover features longitudinal ribs, generating a three-dimensional, dynamic effect.
The 488 Spider also debuts a new color, Blu Corsa, designed to enhance its sleek yet muscular forms.
