Ferrari unveiled the new 458 Spider at the Art Basel Show in Miami, one of the most important contemporary art show in the Americas. Ferrari clients, collectors and their guests joined Ferrari and Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo for an exclusive event celebrating the US arrival of the latest V8 Ferrari model.

The event was held at the modern building designed by Swiss architect de Meuron & Herzog whether an impressive 3D video by artist Marco Brambilla was premiered during the evening. The cocktail reception concluded with music performed by American singer Janelle Monàe.

As the first V8 mid-rear engine car with retractable hard top, the new 458 Spider has already received over 35 awards since its official unveiling at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September, including the title “Best Imported Cabrio 2011” by leading German magazine Auto Zeitung.

Powered by Ferrari’s 562 hp 4499 cc V8, named International Engine of the Year 2011, the 458 Spider features Ferrari’s class-leading dual-clutch F1 paddle-shift transmission, has a max speed of 199 mph and sprints 0-62 mph in less than 3.4 seconds. The 458 Spider’s new chassis technical innovations guarantee identical levels of structural rigidity with the roof up or down. The car is consequently truly exciting to drive and blend extreme performance with the amazing responsiveness. Class-leading fuel consumption and emissions levels are contained thanks to the optional HELE system (High Emotion Low Emission).

Ferrari 458 Spider is the convertible version of its predecessor model: the acclaimed 458 Italia which represented a genuine evolution of Maranello’s mid-rear engine V8 sports cars since its debut in 2010. The 4,499 cc V8 engine punches 570 hp, with a weight-power ratio of 2.42 kg, has a maximum speed of 202 mph and can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in under 3.4 seconds. The Ferrari 458 Italia delivers maximum efficiency and driving performance with a commitment of setting the benchmark in its market in terms of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions: respectively 13.31/100 km and 307 g/km in the combined cycle (ECE+EUDC).

Maranello engineers worked closely with the Ferrari Style Center to revolutionize the car-driver interface: they have reinterpreted the vehicle ergonomics and grouped all the major commands on the steering wheel whether the secondary functions are on two satellite pods located just out from the dash on either side of the steering wheel, a solution that ensures maximum control and safety at all time.
