The 458 Spider is the first car in the world to combine a mid-engine layout with a retractable hard-top roof. Previously, manufacturers were deterred by the lack of space to stow the roof with such a mechanical layout. Ferrari’s fresh-air supercar solves that design dilemma by automatically slotting the collapsing parts of the aluminium roof between the engine and the back of the two seats in the cockpit. Press the button and the whole mechanized roof-disappearing process takes just 14 seconds.
But if you hire a Ferrari 458 Spider don’t let the ingenious roof system distract you from the rest of the car – for it’s one of the prettiest Ferraris ever made. The body has subtle scoops and curves that look good from any angle.
Of course, the Ferrari 458 Spider also has spine-tingling performance: its 4.5-liter V8 engine helps the 458 top 200mph and sprint to 60mph in just three seconds. The Spider is Ferrari’s fastest ever convertible. The standard gearbox is a seven-speed semi-automatic with smooth and almost instant changes, while the sophisticated suspension provides extremely agile and precise handling.
