The Ferrari 458 Spider - It's just a Prancing horse

Besides shaving the 458’s head, Ferrari changed it's throttle mapping, suspension tuning, and “engine soundtrack”. The Spider’s soundtrack should be very pleasing, produced as it's by the same 562- bhp engine as is used in the Ferrari 458 Italia. That power is routed through exactly the same seven-speed dual-clutch automatic as is used in the coupe to the same torque-vectoring differential. Ferrari claims the Spider will run to 62 mph from a standstill in less than 3.5 seconds before gaining a top speed in excess of 198 mph. In a recent comparison test, we kicked a 458 Italia to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds, so the Spider’s figure is probably a bit conservative.
