The new F8 Spider model is the newest member of the Ferrari Ferrari V8 Cabriolet family, which dates back to the 308 GTS model, which came out in 1977.
It may not be as high as the different tone of the 488 Pista Spider, but the new F8 Spider has a better and more powerful sporty performance and driving feel than the previous model, the 488 Spider.
The F8 Spider combines the strongest V8 engine in the history of the brand with unparalleled driving pleasure, providing a fun-filled driving experience for the owners of the Leap Horse with superior practicality and superior handling, and successfully setting up a new standard for the convertible model. The F8 Spider's V8 turbo engine has won the International Engine of the Year award for four consecutive years in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 .
Year, even among the many equally award-winning competitors of the past, has won the "Best of the Best" award, setting an unbeatable winning record in the history of the awards and setting an incomparable benchmark for car and engine manufacturers around the world. The highlight of the new F8 Spider is its powerful, real-time instant power, which, with out the slightest turbo delay, also features the V8 engine's unique sound waves.
Its exceptional performance and easy-to-enjoy handling are thanks to a range of innovative aerodynamic designs developed from track experience. Ferrari Ferrari builds every new model with a combination of innovative design and a comprehensive optimization and upgrade based on previous models. Leap horse engineers and designers often face different challenges, not only to develop innovative and forward-looking vehicle design, set a higher standard of excellence, but also to break the limits of creation and expand the boundaries of technology.
The advent of the new F8 Spider symbolizes Ferrari's once again overcoming challenges and transcending itself. As a successor to the 488 Spider, the new F8 Spider offers a complete improvement in all performance parameters. The F8 Spider has an output of 50cv and a weight reduction of 20 kg compared to the previous model. The F8 Spider also weighs just 20kg compared to the 488 Pista Spider, which has peak performance. In addition, the new car significantly improves aerodynamic efficiency, while also using the latest SSC 6.1 version of the side-slip angle control system.
Ferrari's V8 engine has become a perfect example of the perfect combination of sporty performance and driving pleasure around the world, a perfection that is even more evident in two-seater models with a rear engine configuration.
For more than 40 years, Ferrari Has been constantly improving the performance of its mid-rear engine, hoping to deliver an unparalleled driving experience through optimal weight balance. The Ferrari Ferrari V8 engine has outstanding performance parameters. At 8000 rpm, the exhaust volume of the engine of 3,902cc has an output of up to 720cv and a power factor of a staggering 185cv/l.
The peak torque is also improved by the readjustment: at a speed of 3250 rpm, the peak torque can reach 770 Nm. Ferrari's V8 engine is a masterpiece of modern craftsmanship. The V8 engine on the Ferrari F8 Spider also delivers the outstanding qualities of Ferrari's engine range and upgrades it to deliver an acceleration experience that is not dull and extremely smooth.
Not only that, but the engine sound waves are even more unique with the help of the new exhaust system. The F8 Spider benefits from the perfect combination of vehicle dynamic design, instant power reaction and excellent handling. Perfect for the driver's pure driving pleasure and passion.
The FDE-Ferrari Dynamic Reinforcement System Upgrade, which can be activated in RACE mode, allows the driver to easily ride the sports car while also giving the best possible performance. The F8 Spider's engine has a 50cv power upgrade compared to the 488 Spider thanks to a new intake channel from the 488 Challenge model. In addition, its engine air intakes move back from both sides of the body to the rear spoiler and are directly connected to the gas container, which not only significantly reduces energy loss, but also allows more air flow to be introduced into the engine, effectively enhancing the power output.
The spoiler is then specially designed to significantly increase dynamic air pressure, further introducing more air into the engine.
The F8 Spider automatically adjusts the high-performance start function via the Adaptive Performance Launch to analyze ground conditions and use the most torque dissomuchently transmitted by the electronic control system to match the road grip, minimizing wheel slips and achieving optimal acceleration performance.

The wall effect of the speed limiter also makes the engine's extreme performance leap forward, and when the speed reaches the limit of 8000 rpm, the speed is stopped immediately when it is stopped, rather than gradually limiting the speed when approaching the limit, which facilitates ensuring maximum power output and effectively increasing lap speed in the event of intense driving. Ferrari Ferrari's highly regarded Variable Torque Torque Torque Progressive Torque management system is also in use on this model and is suitable for all gears. The torque curve is newly designed to highlight the extreme sports performance of the new car, resulting in the ultimate smooth acceleration performance. The engine's peak torque is also 10 nm higher than the 488 Spider, and even in the lower speed ranges it is even better.
The new F8 Spider engine follows the Ferrari 488 Pista's highly lightweight design, which reduces weight by up to 18 kg in its power unit compared to the 488 Spider and rotates and non-tempo weights by reducing parts such as titanium linkages, crankshafts and flywheels to quickly increase engine speed. This creates an adrenaline-fuelled driving experience. Especially in the case of tight operation such as shift shift ingress and low gear rapid acceleration, the driver can clearly see the needle on the tachometer spinning rapidly.
This more perfect dynamic lightweight design has succeeded in reducing engine inertia by 17%. In addition, the F8 Spider successfully reduced its engine by 9.7 kg by using a chrome-nickel ferroalloy exhaust manifold from the 488 Challenge models. The entire exhaust system, including turbochargers and exhaust tailpipes, is heavily updated to produce unique engine sound waves. At the same time, the engine tone is also very recognizable, in the volume intensity and tone quality have reached a new level.
The exhaust pipe is also equipped with a new petrol particulate filter (GPF) to meet the new certification requirements.
The new Ferrari F8 Spider, hand-crafted by the Ferrari Styling Centre Ferrari Design Centre, follows the F8 Tributo design style, perfectly illustrating the avant-garde design concept of the strong performance inherent in the Leap Horse brand and ultimate aerodynamic efficiency. When designing an open-top sports car, the choice of convertible is particularly important in the overall shape of the model.
For comfort reasons, Ferrari Ferrari's convertibles have been designed with hard-top convertibles in recent years, as have the Ferrari F8 Spider, and the model's contoured line design is based on a foldable hard-top convertible. The key to the design is to move the body and roof of the line from the traditional waistline position (approximately to the passenger's shoulder position) to the rear of the B-pillar, making the convertible look more refined.
In addition, the convertible is divided into two parts when folded and placed one by one in the position above the engine. At speeds below 45 km/h, the foldable hard top convertible can be easily opened or closed in just 14 seconds.
Ferrari Styling Centre Ferrari Design Centre defines the design objectives of the F8 Spider, which is based on the F8 Tributo design evolution, while drawing inspiration from the most iconic V8 sports car in the history of the brand with a mid-engine configuration to create the F8 Spider, paying tribute to the Ferrari Ferrari Classic V8 engine. The design draws inspiration from advanced aerodynamic sins to give the new car a more distinctive example of sports and personality.
The design draws inspiration from advanced aerodynamic sins to give the new car a more distinctive example of sports and personality. After the introduction of the S-Duct aerodynamic channel, the front of the model was redesigned and a series of aerodynamic innovations were introduced.
For example, the new car is equipped with a new, more compact horizontal LED headlights. The rear spoiler has also been redesigned. The enlarged spoiler covers the tail light, visually lowering the vehicle's center of gravity, while restoring the classic double-circle lamp shape and the design of the same color as the rear and body.
These are important features of the early Ferrari Berlinetta V8 models, and the legendary model, the 308 GTB, is the perfect example of this design. The bonnet design is one of the most distinctive design elements of the F8 Spider model.
The central bulge lines start from the rear window and extend all the way under the wing of the active spoiler, and the overall design is consistent with the air diversion direction, outlining a sharp and aggressive shape. The two winged designs, extended from the center, blend perfectly with the body design, resulting in a smooth visual aesthetic. The floating wing design has vents underited to help improve the engine's cooling. In addition, the three stereo-cutting slits on the side of the bonnet also help the engine dissipate, while the iconic rear window design of the Coupe model is preserved.
The black-coated cut not only has a lightweight design, but also makes the overall shape of the new car more recognizable. The protruding crown design at the rear of the cockpit cover bends and extends back into the spoiler, like a swan-necked tail frame common in F1 racing, while symbolizing the sporty nature of the F8 Spider.
The new F8 Spider cockpit design retains the classic driver-centric design of the berlinetta models in the rear engine configuration and is designed to provide the ultimate driving experience such as the F1 racing man."
The new steering wheel incorporates all the control buttons and the sports seats are newly designed. Underneath the circular air outlet in the center of the instrument panel is an aluminum sail panel that extends to the dashboard. To create a simple and lightweight visual feel, the new car uses a carbon fiber trim to separate the upper and lower parts, highlighting the streamlined overall cockpit design.
In addition, the dashboard includes a Ferrari Classic with a central tachometer and an optional 7-inch passenger-side touch screen.
Under the dashboard is a separate channel, further enhancing the simple design of the new interior." This channel features a new suspended bridge design with a three-dimensional feel, highlighting the streamlined style of the cockpit.
The Ferrari F8 Spider models follow the experience that the Leap Horse brand has accumulated in GT races and the Ferrari Challenge Ferrari Challenge, and use the innovative technologies specially developed by Ferrari Ferrari for these races.
As a result, this medium-rear engine-built, high-volume convertible provides the ultimate in performance for drivers with different driving experiences. Unlike the 488 Spider, the F8 Spider features a backward-tilted front radiator that facilitates cooling at the bottom of the body, but also reduces the surface area at the bottom of the body that provides downforce, so designers redesign the geometry of the hot air channel that effectively drains the hot air channel. To ensure maximum downforce. At the same time, the positive effect between the air flow from the radiator and the front wheel reduces its resistance. As a result, vehicle performance is 10% higher than the 488 Spider.
The F8 Spider is more powerful, the body is lighter, the aerodynamic efficiency is further advanced, and overall performance is significantly higher than that of the 488 Spider. To make it easy for more leap-horse owners to experience the extraordinary performance of the Ferrari F8 Spider, Ferrari engineers are equipped with the latest vehicle dynamic control system in addition to improving the engine performance and aerodynamic efficiency of the models. In addition, the SSC vehicle side-slip control system has been further upgraded to enhance the driver's control over the vehicle during extreme driving, creating a more exciting driving experience.
From SSC 6.0 to SSC 6.1, the FDE-Ferrari Dynamic Reinforcement System Upgrade is integrated in RACE mode. FDE Ferrari Dynamic Reinforcement System, first used in the 488 Pista models, then used in the 488 Pista Spider models, this lateral dynamic control system precisely adjusts the braking power on the brake calipers through software, compared to the original system, the Ferrari F8 The Tributo models are equipped with an additional feature, and this upgraded system is also available on the F8 Spider models. Prior to the upgrade, the FDE Ferrari Dynamic Reinforcement System will only start when the vehicle is overandened and out of the bend (not in braking conditions), while the upgrade will allow the FDE-Ferrari Dynamic Reinforcement System Upgrade to operate at low-grip and also start in RACE mode.
