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.

We hired the lambo for my son’s graduation. Let’s just say he loved the attention he got by the fairer ones! We took a trip around some back roads afterwards, and he was beaming from ear to ear the whole time! In a way years he’ll be able to have a go !
We hired the Rover for a few days in July – car arrived immaculate & very impressed with it’s performance
We took advantage of the weekend hire offer for our wedding anniversary. Fantastic vehicle, had great fun driving around the roads of South Wales. Andrew & the team were second to none. We’ve booked in already for next year for a trip to France in a Ferrari!
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!
WOW. What a machine. The Aventador is just insane, such a fantastic car. We hired one for the weekend off Classic Parade to celebrate our anniversary, and it really made the wife feel like a rockstar wife.
Believe the Hype! this is the greatest car ever made. Porsche got this one right. Amazing handling speed, cornering. Porsche 911 sets the standard of the classic sports car. There really is no substitute! Thank you to Classic Parade for a fantastic weekend hire.
This car is so well behaved in and around town it drives quiet and relaxed in comfort and efficient mode, but set those M buttons up and let the devil entertain you and enjoy the ride….
The Aventadors have been on my bucket list since 2011 it’ll be a dream come true
The Ferrari 488 GTB is, unsurprisingly, exceptionally fast. Ferrari claims 0-62mph in 3.0 sec, and we’re not inclined to doubt it. The clever bit, though, is the manner of the V8’s delivery. In order to avoid feeling overtly turbocharged, it slowly and progressively builds the torque output, meaning there’s actually more amenable, low-down pulling power available in the higher gears than there is in the first few.
This helps to retain the character of a proper hard-driving and high-revving Ferrari engine, as well as making the 488 surprisingly easy to drive. It will, for example, accelerate (very briskly) from 30mph in sixth gear, and doesn’t require the dual-clutch transmission to downshift from seventh on the motorway to execute very prompt outside-lane overtaking. Okay, the 488 doesn’t sound quite as glorious as Ferraris of yesteryear, but that 3.9-litre V8 engine still makes a hell of a noise.
It’s the added usability that really marks the 488 apart from its predecessor, the stellar 458. Yet, to drive, both cars have a familiar identity to the 488. The new model’s steering remains amazingly quick and responsive, and is connected to a chassis that performs a similarly remarkable change of direction. Crucially, this doesn’t happen with the slightly unfeeling, stability-biased four-wheel-drive Lamborghini Huracán, but with a finesse that gauges body roll, weight transfer and rate of response to the point of near perfection.
Much of the car’s cutting-edge tech – including the latest E-Diff and F1-Trac traction control system – is dedicated to the business of making the 488 manageable without strangling the involving and very lively handling one would expect of a Ferrari. In this respect, the Italian manufacturer is second to none. It even rides remarkably comfortably for a supercar – especially if you press the aptly named ‘bumpy road’ button on the steering wheel.
