Ferrari Turns Their 710HP F8 Into A 211MPH Convertible Supercar

Although the Golden Age of convertibles has come and gone, the thirst for an equally immersive driving experience remains the same. For the drivers who still yearn for a one-of-a-kind interactive outing, the drop-top sports car is hard to beat — and now, Ferrari has announced its newest open-air platform, the 2020 F8 Spider.

The F8 arrives hot on the heels of the company’s F8 Tributo coupe and promises an intense, awe-inspiring experience for the brand’s enthusiastic followers. It’s set to replace Ferrari’s 488 Spider, and as such, it inherits the same 710-horsepower twin-turbo V8 as the 488 Pista, bringing track-focused performance to the forefront for the road-legal supercar. To keep the F8 Spider’s 211 mile-per-hour top speed in check, it’s been outfitted with a capable dual-clutch transmission, housing an electronic limited-slip differential and seven-speed gearbox. When everything is said and done, the convertible F8 sheds a staggering 44-pounds off of its already-slimline silhouette, helping it to clock in at just 44 more than the company’s lauded 488 Pista Spider. If you’re ready to feel the wind in your hair, head to Ferrari’s website for more information.
