Well, it’s not here to stay, but that doesn’t mean that we cannot think about it, at least.
It has been just a week since Ferrari has officially pulled the wraps off its newest model, the 488 Spider, but this hasn’t stopped rendering artists from imagining the upcoming range-topping version of the supercar, the 488 Spider Speciale. The model in question will most likely be introduced over a few years, close to the end of the vehicle’s life, and the image posted above is nothing more than a simple rendering, which has been signed by X-Tomi Design. Notice the slightly updated body of the exotic car, along with the striking white and blue stripe covering its top end.
The most important part of the supercar will be found under its hood, where the 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 engine will most likely be upgraded and it will produce more than the one found on the regular 488 GTB and 488 Spider. Under the hoods of the two exotic models, the unit is rated at 670 HP (492 kW) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the 488 Spider to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3 seconds and to go up to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.7 seconds. The supercar has 25 percent chassis improvement, aerodynamic underbody with vortex generators, retractable hardtop which can be folded in 14 seconds and much more. The public debut of the new Ferrari 488 Spider will be made at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, this September.
