This hardtop convertible leverages serious Formula One technologies.
One sure way to be noticed and enjoy your time on the road is to invest in this 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider. It looks wild without trying too hard, comes with performance to spare, and still treats you to all kinds of luxuries. This is the kind of car that puts a swagger in your step, whether you just pulled up somewhere or you’re thinking about getting behind the wheel again.
One of the most notable things about the Ferrari 458 Spider is it was the first retractable hardtop for a mid-rear engine layout on a car. To create such a design was a thing of technological might and pure beauty. With just the push of a button the top retracts into the rear portion of the car, or it emerges suddenly to provide shelter from the elements.
You get plenty of power and a distinct revving sound with the 4.5-liter V8 engine. It puts at your command 562-horsepower, which pulses through the rear wheels for explosive speed. To balance out that power, this 458 Spider also comes with carbon-ceramic brake pads. Perfectly capturing that performance is a E-Diff 3 electronic differential, plus the F1-Trac traction control system. By placing these in the same ECU, the response is immediate and crisp.
Speaking of aesthetic beauty, the aggressive yet sophisticated lines of this Ferrari are perfectly accentuated by the Bianco Avus paint, Yellow brake calipers, and factory wheels. That same level of exciting design flows to the interior, where a Nero scheme with White contrast stitching makes a strong statement. So does the motorsports-inspired steering wheel, which contains items like the ignition button and paddle shifters.
Introduced in 2011, the 458 Spider was yet another solid hit for Ferrari. Production lasted until 2015. According to Reds Enterprises, which is selling this Ferrari, quite a few factory options are included. A history report is on file, so you can be assured all maintenance has been performed correctly.
