Ferrari replaced the 458 Italia with the 488 GTB, the decision to switch from a naturally aspirated engine to a turbocharged unit to improve both performance and fuel.
Like the GTB, it has a 3.9-liter twin-turbo engine that’s connected to a seven-speed paddle-shift gearbox and sends 660bhp to the rear wheels. And while the Spider is slightly heavier because Ferrari has had to add some structural stiffening to make up for the loss of the fixed roof, this is still a car that can blast from 0-62mph in 3.0sec.
It’s partly down to the fact you can drop the roof or lower the rear screen so there’s less of a barrier between you and the engine. The engine fires into life with a suitably dramatic bark, and it howls addictively when you put your foot down.
