Say what you want to say about numbers, specs, displacements and all the other metrics you measure cars by to the guy with a smile on his face behind the wheel of the hardtop convertible Ferrari 488 Spider. See how he doesn’t care about any of that stuff? That’s what the convertible experience is all about. You’re still going to feel it when you’re going fast, which may not be quite as fast as the 488 GTB the Spider is based on, but with the top down, the math won’t matter. You’ll still be able to feel it when the electronic suspension tightens things up in a sharp turn, or when the twin turbos wind up to send your and your V-8 barreling down a straightaway. Go ahead and talk your car guy talk. In the passenger seat with the top down, no one driving a Ferrari 488 Spider will hear you complain.
