Ferrari 458 Spider: Technical Specifications

The new Ferrari 458 Spider is the Prancing Horse's first mid-engine retractable-hardtop convertible which provides the 458 Italia sport-car performances with the open-air driving experience. Docile and reliable enough to be driven daily, the new 458 Spider is powered by the 4.5-lietr V8 562 horsepower engine. The car's ride is reasonably smooth even on the most irregular roads.

With the top up, the Spider is essentially a hardtop, but after just 14 seconds of pushing a button it becomes a convertible. The new V8 convertible features a two-panel top that folds into two parts, goes from horizontal to vertical, and slips into a small space just behind the seats and in front of the engine. The time and attention to details is everywhere and, for example, the 458 Spider hardtop system weighs 55 pounds less than similar soft-tops. Another nice feature of the new Ferrari 458 Spider is the two-position motorized rear window that rises up as a draft-stop.

Ferrari cars are the all-time favorite for its look. Due to having the sporty look it stays in many hearts. I really like to read the technical specification of Ferrari 458 spider. It is the best due to its horse power but the user need to take care of its maintenance. Else it can prone to the vehicle breakdown. Visit ferrari maintenance arlington for more details on the servicing schedule.
