The Ferrari F8 Spider Is Here And It’s Beautiful

Based on the Ferrari F8 Tributo, the F8 Spider is mid-rear-engined drop-top featuring the twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine.

Back in March, Ferrari unveiled the replacement for their 488 GTB, the F8 Tributo. Now, just before its premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Italian carmaker presents the 488 Spider replacement, the Ferrari F8 Spider.

The all-new drop-top, which was designed in parallel with the F8 Tributo, is improving the open-top V8 lineage quite a lot. Indeed, the F8 Spider drops a few kilos compared to the previous 488 Spider, 20 to be precise. Not only is it lighter, it also has 50 more horses.

The Ferrari F8 Spider is powered by the same 3.9-liter V8 engine found in the Berlinetta version. With an output of 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, it propels the F8 Spider to 100 km/h in just 2.90 seconds on its way to a top speed of 340 km/h.

Ferrari’s RHT (or Retractable Hard Top) is what’s featured on this new Prancing Horse. Capable of being opened and closed while driving at speeds of up to 45 km/h, the RHT takes only 14 seconds to deploy or retract.

Like previously stated, this new Ferrari F8 Spider is better in every way to the model it supersedes, and this also includes being more aerodynamically efficient. The new Spider learned a few aerodynamic tricks from Ferrari’s Ferrari’s GT and Challenge racing experience.

We’re talking about the position of the front radiators, among other things, which are rearward-angled. This gives the F8 Spider “a 10% improvement in the car’s overall efficiency compared to the 488 Spider.”
