Ferrari F8 Spider: Adventure Untamed

The F8 Spider is a convertible super-sports car derived from the F8 Tributo, a tribute to the rich history of the Prancing Horse in motorsports. This mid-engine two-seater with Retractable Hard Top hugs the road thanks to SSC 6.1 and improved aerodynamics.

The unmistakable deep roar of the turbo V8 engine resonating from F8 Spider and open air filling the cabin as it speeds to Roosevelt National Forest is palpable. The performance maxed at 710hp with no turbo lag, top speed of 211mph, and 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds are exciting enhancements to the predecessor. Designed with the driver in mind, the cockpit style dashboard optimizes driver’s controls. Free your soul as you lower the hardtop and see the Mile High City skyline fade into the horizon.

The marvelous power and speed of the F8 Spider is a result of enhanced aerodynamics. The front S-Duct increases downforce and front air intakes improve air flow and cooling of the brakes. The radiator packs are tilted towards the rear and side air intakes allow for further reductions in temperature. The rear, that conceals the Retractable Heard Top, of the F8 Spider is the best view. The manta-like engine cover has distinctive spines that disappear under the under the rear blown spoiler that spans the width of the car. And two wings encompass the twin tail lights to harmoniously create downforce and reduce drag.

The F8 Spider is not only exhilarating to drive; it is enjoyable and comfortable at any speed. Advancements in performance were intended to benefit the person behind the wheel. The engine is highly responsive and suffers Zero Turbo Lag throughout the 8,000 rpm range. Additionally, the F8 Spider is 44 pounds lighter than the 488 Spider. Side Slip Angle Control (SSC) 6.1 allows drivers to safely enjoy the F8 Spider’s impressive performance. Switching the manettino to RACE mode now allows the driver to access Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer (FDE). The cabin opens up as the Retractable Hard Top can be taken down in a mere 14 seconds at speeds below 45mph.

This Ferrari two-seater convertible provides open air comfort and luxury during high-powered driving adventures. Sophisticated innovations in and outside the F8 Spider were designed with the driver in mind. Inside the cabin, most notably, the new, more-compact steering wheel with mounted controls, allows for increased steering agility. The classic instrument cluster includes the rev-counter and infotainment center. Additionally, the separate tunnel enhances the lightness of the interior. The leather, aluminum, and carbon fiber dashboard is highly sophisticated yet streamlined. There is an optional 7” touchscreen that can be included as the passenger-side display. The adrenaline inducing sound of the V8 engine is both spectacular with the top up and enhanced by open air with the top down.
