Not to be undone, Ferrari unveils 488 Pista Spider in Pebble Beach

The Monterey Car Week is all about fast cars that cost a lot of money. The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider certainly fits that bill. Based on the coupe version unveiled earlier this year, the 488 Pista is still a lighter, track-focused version of the traditional 488, only this time you get to enjoy the sun on your face with the Spider version.

It’s also the 50th convertible model produced by Ferrari over its illustrious history. It gets its power from a 3.9-liter V8 engine that delivers 720 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, and it can reach 100 km/h in just 2.85 seconds. In case you were worried, the Spider version is as fast at the Coupe to 100 km/h even if it weighs 200 pounds more. Ferrari engineers are magicians.

It will be a bit slower to get to 200 km/h, however. Indeed, it will need just over 8,0 seconds while the Coupe does it in 7.6 seconds. Top speed is over 320 km/h.

Pricing hasn’t been announced but expect a significant bump over the Coupe’s $350,000 MSRP. Given that this is the 50th convertible built by Ferrari, however, we’re sure there’s good money to be made here over time.
