AUCTION PREVIEW

Introduction

Glyn Parry
Professional Consigner

This has to be one of the best cars on the market today and comes with over £52k of extras and nearly four years Ferrari servicing included.

Only 50kg heavier than its coupe sibling, the car still has astronomical performance numbers: 0-60mph in 3.0 seconds and 0-124mph in 8.7 seconds. The car is capable of 661 HP that results in a specific power output of 169.4 HP per litre and specific torque output of 144 lb/ft per litre; both records for a Ferrari automobile.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Glyn after meeting Dave the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

Like us, Dave is a true petrolhead and just loves his cars - his passion is clear to see in the 'Meet the Owner' video.

Dave is also a very busy worker, he states he hasn’t had the chance to put many miles on the car due to his work life.

After owning the Ferrari 458 - the 488’s predecessor - he decided to get the latest and greatest. View the full listing to see how good this example really is.

One of the factors that attracted Dave to this car was the specification / option list. This example is fully loaded and you can see the option list in the paperwork section.

Exterior

Designed by the in-house team at Ferrari under Flavio Manzoni - the team took the 458's design to a whole new level in performance and aerodynamics.

Wheels and Tyres

The 5-spoke Ferrari wheels with carbon fibre caps are set in black that adds a striking contrast to the Giallo body.

The car comes with black brake callipers and the option of carbon-ceramic brakes. The Michelin Pilot Super-Sport tyres appear in excellent condition.

Bodywork

The bodywork looks as if it has been carved by the god of speed. Incredibly cunning and the ability to fit into any surrounding. The design is timeless and we think it will look incredible for many years to come.

Every angle of this car is stunning and is by far one of the best Ferrari’s ever made.

Paint

The Giallo paint is eye-catching to say the least.

Glyn and Dave describe the car as looking as good as new in the ‘Meet the Owner’ video. You can see by the photos and the ‘Exterior Review’ video that the paint is even and in immaculate condition across the whole car.

The car has been protected by Gtechniq Platinum protection, and so you'll see it is in excellent condition.

Glass and Trim

Both in excellent condition.

Interior

Just as stunning as the exterior - the inside of the car lets you instantly know what kind of machine you’re sitting in.

Seats and Carpets

Finished in branded embroidery and Giallo stitching the car looks luxuriously comfortable.

The overall condition is like new and you would find it hard to see any imperfections in the photos and videos.

Dashboard

As mentioned, the car is track-ready.

Ferrari lets you know this with all the different settings you can find. The full electronic dashboard is vibrant and clear, letting you know how your car performance is faring.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Excellent condition with no issues.

The detailing harnessed by the yellow stitching on the steering wheel brings so much life to the beautiful interior.

Mechanics

The 488 Spider is nearly half a second quicker to 62mph than its predecessor, before going on to reach 124mph in 8.7 seconds.

Engine and Gearbox

With 660 BHP, the new unit delivers scorching performance, with both the Spider sprinting from 0-62mph in just 3.0 seconds, with a top speed of more than 200mph.

The dual-clutch 7-speed F1 gearbox manufactured for Ferrari by Getrag is based on the gearbox that was used in the 458 that allows for near instantaneous gear changes.

Suspension and Brakes

The carbon-ceramic brakes are based on those used in the firms wild V12-engined LaFerrari hypercar.

Providing the driver with track-like suspension and one of the best chassis of its time, the car will stick to the ground but allows the driver to whip the rear out a bit when stability controls are loosened.

The Drive

Equipped with an optional sports exhaust, this car really sounds like what a Ferrari V8 should - especially with the roof down.

With virtually no delay when applying the throttle, your adrenaline will harness the same effects.

Electrics and Other

The folding hardtop takes around 15 seconds to fold into place and looks stunning with the roof on or off.

The car also comes with the sports exhaust option.

History and Paperwork

No need to buy from a dealer and pay their premium price as this car comes with nearly four years of included Ferrari main dealer servicing - total peace of mind.

Please take a look at the papwerwork that comes with the car, particuarly the long options list that totals over £52k.
