Who doesn’t love cruising the along the highway with the top open and the wind and sun in your face? Well, we do, and apparently, a certain Italian manufacturer is on the same boat as well. Over the weekend, an Italian luxury marque took the covers off of its latest concept convertible—the Ferrari 488 Pista Spider. It flaunts a luxurious white coat with a bold blue racing stripe right down the middle.
Auto junkies quickly pointed out that the recently unveiled supercar is recognized as the prancing pony’s 50th high-performance luxury drop-top model. The roadster’s streamlined chassis and carbon fiber body result in a manageable weight of 3,036 lbs. Its frame tempts us with flowing curves that sit above four 20-inch diamond-finished alloy wheels. Additionally, you also have that option to swap them out for a lightweight carbon fiber selection.
The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider’s mid-mounted 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 unleashes 711 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. With a top speed of 211 mph, the roadster accomplishes 0-62 mph sprint within 2.85 seconds. The plush interior flows with style thanks to the generous amounts of carbon fiber and Alcantara, while the floor mats use aluminum plates. We are crossing our fingers that it finds its way into production lines soon.Ferrari 488 Pista Spider
