The new Ferrari F8 Spider is on its way to South Africa. Here's how much you can expect to pay for Maranello's latest.
The new Ferrari F8 Spider is the brand's latest addition to the convertible V8 portfolio and it replaces the 488 Spider. The roof mechanism is a retractable hardtop and impressively the vehicle is 20 kg lighter than the outgoing model. This new roof takes only 14 seconds to stow in the rear deck area.
In terms of powertrain, Ferrari has fitted its F8 Spider with the award-winning twin-turbocharged V8 motor. The 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 motor produces a sensational 530 kW and 770 Nm, with the Italian brand claiming 0-100 kph in 2.9 seconds. What's perhaps more impressive is the 0-200 kph claimed time of 8.2 seconds and if the road is long enough, it'll hit a V-max of 340 kph. Power goes to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
Scuderia South Africa CEO, Mervyn Eagles, comments: "We opted to launch the revolutionary F8 Spider in conjunction with the completion of our new corporate identity facelift of our flagship showroom in Bryanston, Johannesburg. Both the F8 Spider and the newly renovated facilities are set to pioneer the next generation of the customer experience in our market"
As far as pricing goes, the base price for the Ferrari F8 Spider is R6 103 400. First deliveries are scheduled in the 4th quarter of 2020.
