The Ferrari 488 Spider is the latest chapter in Maranello’s ongoing history of open-top V8 sports cars, a story that started with the targa-top version of the 308 GTB – the immortal 308 GTS – and which ultimately resulted in the full convertible Spider architecture.
Starting with the RHT (Retractable Hard Top) around which the entire car was developed, every area of the 488 Spider has been designed to set new technological benchmarks for the sector.
The result is the most powerful and innovative Ferrari Spider ever built, a car that marries the extraordinary prowess of the 488 GTB coupé’s mid-rear V8 with the joy of tackling even the most challenging roads surrounded by nature’s heady aromas and colours and accompanied by an inimitable Ferrari engine soundtrack. At the very heart of the car is, of course, the 3902cc turbo-charged V8 which set a new benchmark for this type of architecture. Thanks to a maximum power output of 670 CV and smooth, progressive torque delivery in the higher gears by the Variable Torque Management system, the 488 Spider sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds flat and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.7 seconds.

The twin of the Toyota GT86, but they can’t have it in Subaru blue (aka the best colour!). Amazing little thing, so drift-able it’s untrue. Wish it had a little bit more power, although I think you might end up backwards more often than not!
MORE POWER! Absolutely loved having the RS at the weekend, such a great car. Thanks to Andrew and the team at Classic Parade, top professionals from start to finish.
Driving the LFA well takes some getting used to, and more time than I had. You have to learn its quirks before you can really master what it’s capable of. I didn’t even come close to scratching the surface of what it can do on the street, nor would I want to. Track time in one is now at the top of my bucket list.
The LFA is an amazing, fascinating machine. Rare as it is, misunderstood as it is, in spite of whatever flaws it may have, it will easily stand the test of time as one of the greatest supercars ever built by anyone — badging be damned.
Love all aspects of the car from styling to engine sound and comfort. Space is excellent in the cabin ( boot tight though) & the seats are very comfortable even over long distances. Sat nav is very fiddly to use but very accurate in operation.
Never driven an electric car before, it’s a very strange sensation not hearing an engine and driving silently off. But boy does this thing go. The one he rented had ludicrous mode, which can only be described as like taking off in a Jet plane. As much as I love the internal combustion engine, I think it’s days are numbered with cars like this.
Having previously had an E90 M3 coupe, I was expecting good things from the new M4 (aka M3 coupe!). And it does not disappoint. The handling is a lot sharper, and you don’t miss the 2 cyclinders in terms of power as the new 6 pot performs very well (can’t quite say the same for the exhaust tone but if you’re down 2 cylinders, not much you can do).
Get behind the wheel of a Mercedes C63 AMG coupe and it takes only 10 minutes on the road to come to some inevitable conclusions, the first and foremost being that this car is one very special piece of machinery. As soon as you fire up the 6.3 liter V8, you are met with a sonorous and distinctly AMG crack and burble not dissimilar to something you would expect from a NASCAR racer…
The spider is a great car, we rented one in July for a long weekend – definitely recommend Classic Parade for their outstanding service.
One of the best cars driven with the most practicality for a coupe, best performance, reliability and handling that makes every drive a great experience. Drove 6hrs in an A3 and the TT RS and he latter made it feel like a pleasure!
Not the kind of car I normally rent from Classic Parade but needs must! They really do have a car for every occasion. Though I’ll take the Aston again next time guys!
