The 488 Spider was first introduced to the American market as a 2017 model (only one year after the 488 GTB coupe was introduced). The spider comes equipped with a 3.9 liter twin turbo engine that produces 661 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque. This is 99 more hp and 163 lb-ft of torque than the previous generation 458 Italia which used a normally aspirated 4.5 liter V8 engine. What the added power does is make the 488 Spider one of the fastest production cars on the planet. 0 to 62 mph only takes 3 seconds. 0 to 124 mph only takes 8.7 seconds. The top speed is 203 mph. The 488 Spider is more rigid than the 458 Spider, approximately 20% more to be exact. Due to this the 488 Spider has no jarring or shaking and ride quality is nearly identical to that of the 488 GTB coupe. This was not the case with the 458 Spider which used a slightly softer suspension setup compared to the 458 Italia and suffered from some cowl shake over rougher roads. The 488 Spider uses the same aluminum roof mechanism to go from Coupe to Spider in 14 seconds as the previous generation 458. It works flawlessly and can be lowered and closed while driving. The 488 Spider also uses
When you really wind the Spider up, it handles just as sweetly as the coupe. The more rigid body allowed Ferrari to tune the suspension identically to the coupe, where previously the adaptive dampers were a little softer in Wet mode. Super-quick steeringmeatier on both 488s thanks to 458 Speciale-width tires and calibration changespivots the nose into curves with an almost unnatural deftness. The magnetorheological dampers balance bump absorption with rock-solid control, and all the while you've got that same playful balance that defined every 458. Tip the steering into a hairpin, squeeze the throttle, feel the e-diff tighten, and you rocket up the road either with tires on fire or Side-Slip Angle Control electronics managing grip and slip like you're a pro-racer.
So, the 488 GTB's transformation into a Spider involved more work this time around: there's an additional vertical aluminum panel by the front axle, and a horizontal one at the rear of the car. Ferrari is a little cagey on actual figures, but we're told 488 Spider is 20 percent more torsionally rigid than its predecessor. That feels like a big improvement. The Spider smothers bumps like Don Corleone with a pillow and a score to settle. There's no jarring, no shaking, and it's a struggle to differentiate the Spider driving experience from the fixed-roof GTB. Due to the increase rigidity on the 488 Spider Ferrari was able to keep suspension identical to the 488 GTB Coupe. This was not the case with the 458 Spider which used a slightly softer suspension set up compared to the 458 Italia. The 488 Spider uses the aluminum roof mechanism to go from Coupe to Spider in 14 seconds as the previous generation 458.
