Ferrari 488 Spider Launched In London At VIP Event

Ferrari’s “affair” with open-top mid-engined cars started with the targa version of the 308 GTB, which ultimately resulted in the full convertible Spider architecture.

Its latest iteration, the 488 Spider, was launched in the UK at an exclusive event in a central London venue.

Ferrari says that this is the most powerful and innovative Spider it has ever built and it has the numbers to back it up. We’re talking 670 PS, a top speed of 325 km/h (203 mph), and 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3 seconds flat with the help of a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission.

The London event brought together lots of Ferrari clients as well as VIPs, with guests from the fashion, arts and creative communities. Those in attendance were able to experience first-hand the unique “Tailor-Made” service available to customers – an atelier of the highest standards of craftsmanship and personalization that allows for luxurious fabrics and color combinations.
