The Italian based automaker Ferrari has just presented its fastest convertible yet, the 458 Spider, in Tokyo, Japan, with the help of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, choosing this time a white version of the supercar instead of the classic red.
The event was used by Ferrari and the two drivers to support a charity auction for the earthquake-ravaged city of Ishinomaki, and the supercar manufacturer managed to collect over 70 million yen (911.100 USD / 663.600 EUR) which will be donated to rebuild a couple of after-school facilities.
The powerful Ferrari 458 Spider has been officially presented at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and the Maranello based automaker has already announced details like the performance of price, but now the Italian manufacturer is once again making our news after finally releasing its super-convertible in the Far East, in Tokyo.
The Ferrari 458 Spider is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine which is developing a total output of 570 horsepower at 9.000 rpm and a peak torque of 398 lb-ft available at 6.000 rpm, mated to the dual-clutch seven-speed F1 transmission.
With its 0 to 62 mph acceleration that takes just 3.4 seconds and its top speed of 198 mph, the new 458 Spider has been priced at 257.000 USD. You can watch the video below. Enjoy!
