This reveal of the Ferrari F8 Spider was the second in a series of reveals held in South Africa
After a warm welcome from Scuderia South Africa CEO, Mervyn Eagles, the vehicle was revealed to rooms of enthused owners, prospects and their guests by Sales Manager, Arno Cloete and Cape Town General Manager, Athna De Jager – Gaven removing the red silk cover from the vehicle. The reveal was met with delight from the room full of guests.
Seductively stunning from every angle, brutal power with zero turbo lag, and a spine tingling soundtrack, the F8 spider improves on all aspects of the 488. With 50 CV more, 20kgs lighter and a host of Maranello wizardry encompassing design, technology, innovation, performance and power, this retractable hard top raises the bar to unprecedented level.
Ferrari F8 Spider was designed in parallel with the F8 Tributo berlinetta and features the Prancing Horses’ compact and efficient Retractable Hard Top which influences the lines of a model that leads its category.
The vehicle is the latest addition to an exclusive and prestigious bloodline of open-top V8 that began with the 308 GTS in 1977.It is less extreme than that of the 488 Pista, but sportier and more innovative than that of the 488 Spider which it replaces in the range.
The F8 Spider’s greatest achievement is the fact that it unleashes its power instantaneously with zero turbo lag, whilst retaining this V8’s unique and very special soundtrack. This astonishing performance and car’s disarmingly effortless handling were made possible by integrating a series of innovative, track derived aero solutions into its design.
