Used Ferrari 488 Spider For Sale
If you were to dissect what determines the cost of this amazing car, it is a bargain for the performance delivered. A mid-engine car with twin turbos has not crossed the assembly line since 1996 so the new car has large shoes to fill. The dual-scroll turbos are fed by equal length exhaust primaries and have lightweight aluminum compressor blades for a quick response. For the ultimate in high rpm breathing, both intake and exhaust camshafts utilize solid roller lifters. The intake is a tunnel ram design with tall runners for low-end torque, which makes this Ferrari 488 Spider for sale an open top dream come true. Other tricks learned through years of development led to 660 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque.
This car the latest in open air exotics. With a list of credentials unmatched in the automotive world, it makes use of a 3.9L V8 engine and two turbochargers along with a retractable hardtop. The Italian exotic car builder knows a thing or two about convertibles, as this production vehicle is their 24th production drop-top model. Usually, convertible versions are launched a year or two after the coupe, but both coupe and convertible were released almost concurrently. We first saw them at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September of 2015.
Hardtop convertibles offer the best of both worlds: The insulation and looks of a conventional roof with the ability to disappear in seconds. The price is competitive with other cars in its class. The list price is $275,000 without any optional content. Car customization is an option, and our dealers have a direct line to the factory in Maranello for the latest in bespoke options.
Another option is buying pre-owned as the market for used Ferrari convertibles is as strong as ever. Strength is derived not only from the included maintenance programs but also literally from the aluminum space frame of the open air car. Developed as a collaboration with Alcoa, it allows the 488 to be one of the stiffest convertibles on the market.
The latest stability management system is known as Side Slip Control, and it uses the turbos, ignition timing and the ABS system to keep you safe. Performance, as a result, is truly groundbreaking. The vehicles 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds on the way to 203 mph. If you demand the most performance for your dollar, please contact one of our dealers for more information.
This car is the most powerful mid-rear-engined V8 automobile to feature the patented retractable hardtop. Powering the car is the same turbocharged V8 engine that debuted in the 488 GTB months ago. This new engine gives the convertible 660 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque to play with. When pushed, the new model will sprint from 0-62 mph in 3 seconds flat and 0-124 mph in 8.7 seconds.
This is the “most aerodynamically efficient open-air car ever built by Italian engineers.” This was made possible through several new devices, including a blown spoiler and an underbody featuring vortex generators.
For the makeup of the car’s chassis, 11 different aluminum alloys were used, as well as other metals, such as magnesium. This allows the supercar to have the same torsional rigidity and beam stiffness figures as its coupe counterpart. In fact, the chassis’ performance is increased by 23 percent over its predecessor, the 458.
Helping the car’s driving capabilities is the fully integrated SSC2 Side Slip Angle Control System, which ups the acceleration out of corners by 12 percent when compared to the 458. In fact, response times, in general, are 9 percent faster than its predecessor, making the 488 a suitable successor.
Upon first glimpsing at the 2019 Ferrari 488 Spider, one cannot help but feel that this piece of machinery is the result of a glorious partnership between a masterful engineer and an artistic genius. A 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine is largely responsible for the staggering power that lies beneath the beautifully designed Spider’s exterior. With 661 horsepower, 561 lb-ft of torque and the ability to go from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds, it is difficult to determine whether the overall design or the power is the greatest feature of the 488 Spider. A 7-speed automatic transmission and a top speed of 202 MPH, however, seem to work in favor of this mighty beast’s performance, while the aerodynamic curves, sloped windshield, and long hood all play in favor of the aesthetic design. In either scenario, the Ferrari 488 Spider is a show-stopping supercar that is equally focused on high-performance, design, and luxury. Taking a glimpse inside of the cabin, Ferrari does not disappoint with signature leather seating, contrasting stitching and an uncluttered cockpit. For convertible enthusiasts, one of the most prominent features of the 488 Spider is the hard top design which has the ability to transform from open to closed, or vice versa, in as little as 14 seconds. Although the top speed is slightly behind that of the Ferrari 488 GTB model, many will argue that a 3 MPH difference is well worth the sacrifice for the sleeker, open top style Ferrari.
