The 458 Spider was premiered at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and is the convertible variant of the 458 Italia. It features an aluminium retractable hardtop which, according to Ferrari, weighs 25 kilograms less than a soft roof such as the one found on the Ferrari F430 Spider. This was the first Ferrari to feature a solid roof such as this and it can be opened in just 14 seconds giving the best of both worlds.
The engine cover was redesigned to accommodate the retractable roof system which was designed to be as light as physically possible. Remarkably the Spider has the same 0 – 60 mph time as the hard-top and a top speed of 199 mph.
This UK RHD example was supplied new to Mr Edward Fairclough located in Lancashire, on the 9th of March, 2013, via Ferrari dealer H R Owen. Specified in an unusually high specification and in the stunning combination of Nero Daytona over a Nero Hide Racing Seats with Giallo contrast stitching throughout. The high specification benefits outside from 20" 5 Spoke lightweight wheels in Grigio situated in front of Giallo Brake Calipers, front and rear parking sensors, rear parking camera, Carbon Fibre rear panel, and Scuderia Wingshields.
The interior is appointed with the highly desirable Carbon Fibre Racing Seats with Giallo stitched Cavallinos in each headrest, Carbon Steering wheel with LED shift, Carbon driver's zone, centre console and dash insert, iPod connection, Radio Navigation system and Giallo Gauges.

Today this example has covered just 13,800 Miles from new and has covered under 850 Miles since its last service. Accompanied by its original and complete bookpack, spare key, tools and tyre pump. This Spider is ready to be used and enjoyed immediately with viewings available at our showrooms just outside London.
