A Ferrari is one of those cars that everyone dreams of having but a Ferrari is definitely not for everyone. Its exclusivity justifies its high price tag and you have to spend millions of dollars just to get one of these cars to your doorsteps. Like every other car, it comes up with a new model from time to time. This year’s new model is the Ferrari 488 and it is going to knock your socks off. In this article we will be talking about 7 things that you never knew about this new model:
1. It has V-8 Spiders-
Ferrari is known for its world-class design and performance. The new Ferrari 488 comes with eight V-8 spiders. It is really unusual for a car to have as many as 8 spiders.
2. The 488 spider is way quicker-
As compared to their previous version that had the GTS of 308, the new Ferrari is leaps and bounds better. It is way faster than any other spider that they have already launched. The Spider goes from 0 to 62 kmph in 3 seconds.
The spider has a twin galore turbocharged engine of 3.9 litres each. It has a horsepower of 661 and it kicks in max torque at 3,000 rpm. It has a seven speed dual clutch transmission gear which is faster than the blink of an eye. It is faster than you could have ever imagined!
4. Coupe drivers-
The previous models of Ferrari have seen a single driver seat with no passenger seats. But this new spider model is a lot different than its ancestors; it has a passenger seat and according to Ferrari their customers are loving this new and improved version. Spider owners spend more time with passengers riding along.
It is not unusual for Ferrari owners to drive with the sunroof down. Keeping the preference of their customers in mind Ferrari has made the task much easier. The top comes down in 14 seconds while the car is moving slower than 28 mph. The top also tucks away from your side quite neatly taking only 3.5 cubic feet of space.
6. For passengers-
Ferrari has not forgotten about their comfort and luxury of the passengers who are towing along. It adds a small display screen for the passenger to watch, the leather-clad seats are a heaven to be in!
The new spider will hit the market around next summer and will have a price tag of $275,000 attached to it. Initially, the car will be blue in colour but as the model gains its popularity, other colours like yellow, white and red will be added.
Until now Ferrari had its signature style but now it is breaking all its previous records to come up with something absolutely new!
