Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) 488 Spider Review
Spend $250,000 on a Supercar and it better rock your world, this Ferrari does just that.
Ferrari’s new twin-turbocharged convertible is charged with broadening the appeal of its mid-engined V8 range. Its GTB coupé sister has been criticized for the sound it makes, despite being very fast, removing the roof add to its appeal.
The Ferrari 488 Spider starts with its alluring and functional exterior. Designed for maximum downforce at high speeds the 488’s shape makes a racy promise fulfilled by its dynamic abilities.
Fast describes full-throttle acceleration in the GTS as inadequately as sporty conveys its world-class handling.
A standard adaptive suspension facilitates extraordinary handling and a surprisingly great ride while reality-bending forward motion comes courtesy of a monstrously powerful twin-turbocharged V8 teamed with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Depending on your tastes a Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 or McLaren 650S might better fulfill your automotive fantasies, but if your a childhood dream is a Ferrari, there is no substitute for a 488 GTS.
At 155 mph the GTS’s meticulously engineered bodywork, scoops, vents and underbody panels conspire to generate more than 700 pounds of road-holding aerodynamic downforce; a reassuring fact when traveling Fast.
While the GTB’s seductive charms are undeniable I prefer access to the wind, sun and adoring onlookers. For me the 488 Spider is the 1st choice.
