Dubai, October 30, 2011: Ferrari’s recently launched 8-cylinder convertible, the 458 Spider, will share the spotlight with the Ferrari FF and an exclusive customised Ferrari California at the Dubai Motor Show to be held next week. “Motoring enthusiasts will have the opportunity to see the 458 Spider, which is sure to be one of the star attractions of this year’s event,” said Hossam Hosni, General Manager – Luxury Auto, Al Tayer Motors, the exclusive Ferrari representatives in the UAE.
The new 458 Spider (featured in http://drivemeonline.com/2011/09/16/ferrari-458-spider-debuts-at-frankfurt-buyers-get-own-personal-designer) joins the 458 Italia, widening the range of Ferrari’s mid-rear engined V8s and offering the same uncompromising technological solutions, handling and performance in a refined open-top configuration. It is equipped with a Ferrari-patented fully retractable hard top – a world first for a sports car with this layout. The 458 Spider is powered by Ferrari’s naturally-aspirated, direct-injection 4.5 litre V8 which was nominated as the 2011 International Engine of the Year for its engineering excellence in terms of driveability, performance, economy and refinement.
