The extremely futuristic styling of this new Ferrari car flaunts the luxury along with sporty and comfort elements. The aggressive styling of this car comprises a flat undertray without aero aidsn to generate more downforce in comparison to the previously existing F430 while offering better aerodynamic qualities. The efficiency of this Ferrari beast is encouraged by moving the intakes for the power mill bay cooling from the drive's rear flanks to the undertray. The Enzo touch inlet wings of this Italian car angle air upwards to decrease drag at high speeds. Also, the metallic exteriors of the car give a glossy and flawless effect to it making it look one in a million on the road. The roof line of the Spider slides down lighty in order to merge into the bumper. Other than this, the rear side of the car looks bold and menacing with the roof line lowering delicately into the rear.

Interiors

The cabin of the Ferrari 458 Spider offers the best material and craftsmanship, which is as per the expectations of its customers. The company has employed all the features and devices that are required for the cars of this class. The premium leather wrapped seats offer the luxurious and comfort feel while traveling in it.

The Ferrari 458 Spider is a perfect example of elegance and beauty. The car offers exemplary performance and smooth handling.

But all this comes with a cost and the actual price on the road doesn't look affordable for all.
