During the world-famous Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach in California Ferrari unveiled the new Special Series model, the Ferrari 488 Pista Spider, the 50th drop-top model from the Prancing Horse and a premiere in the US was a natural choice given that, ever since the 1950s, North American clients have always been keen connoisseurs of high-performance convertibles.
488 Pista Spider sets a new benchmark for Ferrari for spider performance with an unprecedented weight-power ratio of 1.92 kg/cv by the adoption of the most powerful Ferrari V8 engine ever, which was recently named Best Engine in the world for the third consecutive year at the 2018 International Engine of the Year Awards. The 3902cc twin-turbo V8 unleashes 720 cv and combines that power with increasing torque at all engine speeds for continuous and unending acceleration all the way to the red line. The unique engine sound is now even more riveting thanks to the open-top configuration.
