The 488 continues a bloodline that began with 1975’s 308 GTB, whose 3.0-litre V8 produced a piffling-by-modern-standards 252bhp. In fact, Ferrari’s merciless technological advance means that this latest Spider is more powerful than 2002’s Enzo hypercar. Enzo Ferrari used to boast that he made engines, and everything else was an after-thought. No longer. The 488 Spider places the driver perfectly at the heart of the machine, and those gorgeously cresting front wings mean you can place it confidently on the road.
