Ferrari is one of the most respected and recognized brands across the globe. Originating in 1939, the prancing horse logo has dominated both the racing and luxury scene. It’s safe to say that anyone with even a passing interest in cars has hung up a Ferrari poster. For those looking to make their dreams become a reality, this 2016 Ferrari 488 Spider for sale could be calling your name.
Using the Ferrari 488 coupe as its foundation, the 488 GTS brings a top-down option without much compromise. This 2016 Ferrari 488 Spider for sale uses the same turbocharged 3.9L V8 found in the coupe. A departure from the previous 458 model’s naturally aspirated engine, Ferrari engineers were keen to deliver a turbocharged engine without any turbo lag. Thankfully, they succeeded, and the 488 opens up like any Ferrari before it. The V8 engine outputs an eye-watering 661 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque.
Not only does the engine deliver raw power, but it sounds great too. Ferrari has spent much time studying harmonics and tonality to bring an engine sound that nay auto enthusiast would love. This, of course, is even more appreciated with the top is down. Connected to the engine is a 7-speed automatic transmission with F1-inspired paddle shifters.
The 488 Convertible for sale can match its coupe sibling with a 0-60 speed time of 3.0 seconds. With a top speed of over 200 mph, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything faster in a convertible. Taking a convertible around the corners of a track is usually a poor choice. However, a spaceframe chassis mitigates that issue. With 11 different aluminum alloys, the 488 Convertible for sale can provide the same torsional rigidity as the coupe, an incredible feat.
