The latest chapter in Ferrari's ongoing history of open top V8s heralds a new generation of 8-cylinder supercars that are fitted with turbochargers. Following the success of the 488 GTB, a car equipped with a number of improvements on its predecessor the 458, including a smaller displacement engine of 3.9 litres furnished with twin turbos and mounted lower down in the car. The new engine boasts an impressive and eye watering by only yesterday's standards 661 bhp accelerating the car from 0-60mph in just 3 seconds, and ultimately reaching a top speed of 203 mph. The 488 also has a new generation of the Slide Slip Control, which will carefully firm up or soften the dampers. The brakes are derived from the LaFerrari and there is a dual-clutch 7-speed transmission regarded as one of the finest gearboxes on any car to date.
This RHD 488 Spider was first registered in January 2017 to its first and only owner in London. It is presented in the elegant combination of Grigio Titanio over Blu Sterling. Equipped with full electric Daytona sports seats in Blu Sterling with elegant contrasting stitching and embroidered Cavallino Rampante on the headrests in Grigio Scuro. This car benefits from the optional extended leather steering wheel and upper dashboard too and with the Carbon Fibre Driving Zone, Carbon Fibre Tunnel Bridge and Carbon Fibre dashboard inserts, the cockpit is a very nice place to be.
Additional options include the Front Axle Lifting System, 20’’ Diamond Cut Forged wheels, Front and Rear parking cameras and Adaptive Front Lighting System. Having covered just 900 miles from new, this example wants for nothing and will be covered by its 7 year warranty until 2023
