The 488 Pista Spider has a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine producing 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It bears the distinction of being the first convertible Ferrari to be lighter than its coupe counterpart and equals its 0-62 mph time of 2.85-seconds as well as its Fiorano lap time of 1:21.5.
The Pista Spider comes with all of the technical innovations that make the Pista Coupe such a stunning performer and opting for the open-topped version here comes with none of the usual dynamic compromises. The roof can be lowered in 14 seconds and the active aerodynamics and advanced Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (a complex electronic chassis control system) are claimed to provide the driver with a level of dynamic assistance never before offered on a road-going Ferrari. Prices are expected to be around the $350,000 mark before any options.
