HARMONY AND LIGHTNESS WITH A RACING HEART
The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider sports the most powerful V8 engine in Maranello history which was also named Best Engine for the third consecutive year at the 2018 International Engine of the Year Awards. Aerodynamic demands guided the work of the Ferrari Design Centre team. The 488 Pista Spider’s forms have been meticulously sculpted to ensure they are more performance-oriented than ever, with huge attention lavished on ensuring that while aerodynamic demands were met.
It combines the finest race developed technological solutions with the joy of en plein air driving to deliver an exhilarating experience behind the wheel.
The model’s engine, dynamics and aerodynamics are derived from two track cars: the 488 Challenge and the 488 GTE. The latter won the GT class of the FIA World Endurance.
The driver zone has been enhanced by two newly-developed all-carbon-fibre instrument clusters around the main instrument panel. The glove compartment has been removed and replaced by handy storage pockets on the rear bench and the doors. The effect is to significantly visually slim down the volume of the under-dash area.
The concept of the front is echoed in the dolphin-tail rear spoiler which appears suspended to provide an impression lightness, and efficiency, while the rear volumes add a sense of power to the tail.
