Only six months ago Ferrari introduced F8 Tributo coupe at 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Now its droptop counterpart the company is planning to make an online debut. It is a replacement of 488 Spider. This is a new convertible from the Maranello which remains faithful to a fixed-roof cousin with the apparent exception of an electrically coverable hardtop. It is a modernized rear deck to accommodate new roof arrangement. This is how many seconds that the RHT needs to be fully deployed or retracted while car is traveling at speeds which don’t exceed 28 mph (45 kph). As compared to model it replaces in the Ferrari’s lineup. The new F8 Spider is 44 pounds (20 kilograms) lighter while being 44 lbs (20 kg) heavier than hardcore 488 Pista Spider. Moreover, those good looks carry an additional benefit into account revised bodywork has upgraded aero by 10%.
The rival for McLaren 720S Spider, new Ferrari convertible, uses same 3.9-liter V8 twin-turbo engine as the coupe. And it complete with 568 pound-feet and 711 horsepower of torque in order to match 488 Pista. In addition, with seven lb-ft (10 Nm) and 50 hp more than model it replaces, new F8 Spider does 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) run in only 2.9 seconds, i.e. a tenth of second quicker than the predecessor. In addition, 0-124 mph (0-200 kph) in 8.2 seconds or, while top speed of (340 kph) 211 mph is considerable improvement over 488 Spider’s 325 kph (203 mph).
The power gains will be more by adapting intake line from 488 Challenge race car. Moreover, while Inconel exhaust manifolds modified from the same vehicle have reduced 9.7 kg from the total engine weight. Furthermore, engine upgrades inherited from Pista have major contribution towards weight loss. As well as there is now particulate gasoline filter in order to make F8 Spider comply with European emissions laws.
