Latest Ferrari 488 Spider By Carlex Is All Yellow Leather And Alcantara

When it comes to supercars, the word exotic really should coincide with exclusive, which is what this yellow-themed Ferrari 488 Spider is.

Its custom-built cabin represents just 1 of 5 bespoke interior sets created by tuning company Carlex Design for the 488 Spider, and as you can see, it’s a high contrast blend of bright yellow leather and Alcantara. Pretty much every single surface has been adorned in one of the two high quality materials, and unless you hate the color combo, the end result really should entice.

The overall aesthetic seems identical with what we saw inside this blue 488 Spider last month, featuring the same leather and Alcantara patterns, except everything was blue, including the Alcantara. That one also had a few yellow inserts, within the seats, across the lower dashboard and across the door panels.

Like the blue 488, this yellow one appears stock on the outside (aside from the body-colored side sills), and since there’s no mention of any modification to its 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8, we’ll assume that it should keep pumping out 670 PS (661 HP) and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque, with the help of a 7-speed automatic.

In a straight line, the 488 Spider can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3 seconds flat, before maxing out at 325 km/h (203 mph). Compared to the Coupe model, the Spider is heavier by just 50 kg (110 lbs).

    Is it nowadays compulsory that any modding of luxury cars must make them uglier? Or has the last wealthy customer run out of taste?

      Probably the second part is right.
