The new Ferrari spider

As far as wishful ‘thinking’ goes I’d probably sell it but for the money but if you’re a true car enthusiastic – you’d probably do the same if you’re expecting to drive it in Fiji, wouldn’t you.
I’m talking about the hottest most powerful series production Ferrari convertible you’ve ever seen by far.
The Independent reports it nicknamed the Spider, this hairdryer on alloys will whisk you from a standing start to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, about as fast as the laws of physics will allow – an ideal way for you to cool down on a hot day. Probably not in Suva because you’ll get a ticket but maybe in the Italian Riviera, or Margate for that matter (which has better beaches).
It costs £250,000 or ($F666,000) if you so wish to acquire one.
According to reports after its world premiere at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the new special series Ferrari 488 Pista Spider made its European debut at the Paris Motor Show.
This is also the most powerful series production spider in Ferrari history, with an unprecedented power/weight ratio of 484 horsepower per tonne. This compares to say, 269 horsepower/tonne of the Porsche 911, or 410 horsepower/tonne in the super-light Caterham CSR.
