Video: Ferrari 458 Italia Spider Appears in Italy

The Ferrari 458 Italia Spider made its debut this week in Maranello.

In one week we will get to see the Ferrari 458 Italia Spider in person when it debuts at the Frankfurt Auto Show. We here at CarBuzz are very excited to see several models and the one some of us are most looking forward to seeing is the new Ferrari 458 Italia Spider. The Italian supercar made its debut this week in Italy prior to Germany's premier event. Held in Maranello, the Ferrari showed off its new aluminum retractable hardtop which takes seconds to deploy and retract.

Opening and closing in under 15 seconds, the hardtop weighs a scant 55lbs less than the hardtops of yore. The Spider sports a naturally-aspirated direct-injection 4.5-liter V8. The fellas at Teamspeed went to Italy and caught this video, thumbs up to those guys and be sure to catch our coverage of the 2011 Frankfurt International Auto Show.
