There was a time when even Ferrari Spiders were considered hairdressers cars, and if you wanted a serious Ferrari, it had to be the best for the track. Ferrari have proved that you can have your cake and eat it with a Spider, as 9/10th of us will not be able to push the GTB hard enough to be faster anyway.
We recently did a Podcast interview with a multi Ferrari owner, who among other cars owned a 488 GTB and a 488 Spider. On thing he mentioned as a huge advantage over the coupe, was that in the Spider you could lower the rear window to bring in that engine noise into the cabin. A huge advantage over the closed version.
It’s a great interview, and you can check it out here:
However, there is the elephant in the room, which must be mentioned. Whilst driving a 488 Spider might be great, it could be a huge disadvantage for pedestrians if you don’t look like Brad Pitt. After all the driver will be seen, and that may not always be a good thing!
