Ferrari has revealed a sexier version of the F8 Tributo Berlinetta – meet the new Ferrari F8 Spider, a new generation drop-top sports car equipped with the most successful mid-rear-mounted V8 in history.
The design language of the iconic F8 Tributo’s high performance and extremely aerodynamic nature has been granted with a dose of open-air treatment. This has resulted in a weight loss of 20kg when compared to the Tributo and 20kg more than the more extreme 488 Pista Spider.
Propelling the F8 Spider is a 530kW/770Nm 3.9litre twin-turbo V8 engine that allows for a 0-100km/h sprint to be completed in 2.9sec before clocking a top speed of 340km/h. power is sent to the rear wheels via a standard F1 7-speed dual clutch transmission. These figures remain unchanged from the coupe model, with the only difference being the 0-200km/h sprint which come up four-tenths slower (8.2sec) than the coupe.
Mzansi availability details are yet to be confirmed.
