Ferrari 458 Spider

The new 2012 Ferrari 458. It is world’s first mid-rear engined berlinetta and equipped with a retractable hardtop(Check out the video). The car’s retracting back-panel mechanism is similar to the one on the Superamerica, but more streamlined in design, and it hides under a double-hump rear deck when stowed (the Superamerica’s roof laid itself on top of the rear deck). The roof can fold itself down into a space ahead of the engine bay in 14 seconds, and the independently operable rear window doubles as a wind blocker. Powered by a 4.5-liter direct-injection V8, 570 hp engine. Top speed is about 198 mph, with a 0-62 time of 3.4 seconds.
