Presented by Mecum Auction – This one-of-a-kind 488 Spider benefits from the Ferrari Tailor Made personalization program and is the only example finished in this livery of Argento Nurburgring with Rosso Corsa. Being constructed during Ferrari’s 70th anniversary makes this spider a very rare 488.
The striking silver paint scheme—which honors the dramatic and immensely successful Ferrari 250 Testa Rossas of the 1950s—is accented with its red front fascia that tapers to a bold center stripe to the rear of the body. The interior carries through the vintage-inspired aesthetic with red accents and powered seats with contrasting piping. Additional features totaling more than $87,000 include airbrushed Ferrari Scuderia fender shields, 20-inch forged body-color matte finished wheels, carbon fiber sill panels and matte black rear diffuser and external grilles.
This 488 Spider offers the best of open- and closed-car configurations. Its power-operated retractable hardtop unfolds and retracts in only 14 seconds for comfort, style and security. The complete design is distinctly unique and timeless in execution. Driving a 488 Spider is the ultimate connection of car and driver, with all controls at your fingertips. The midmounted, twin-turbocharged 661 HP V-8 engine is docile in the city and exhilarating on the open road or track.
The 7-speed Formula 1 derived paddle-shift, dual-clutch transmission can be configured for road-going comfort or responsive track duty by way of the steering wheel’s Manettino control switch. The 488’s fully independent suspension with double-wishbone front and multi-link rear are dampened by the latest version of the magnetic damping system for the ultimate control under any road condition. A front end lifter aids in accessing steep driveways, while the carbon-ceramic disc brakes accented with yellow calipers provide precise control while stopping.
This is your opportunity to be among the elite of Ferrari enthusiasts who admire the personalization offered by the Ferrari Tailor Made program without the long wait usually expected for a custom build by the Ferrari factory.
THIS CAR WILL BE AUCTIONED OFF AT THE MECUM KISSIMMEE 2020 EVENT (JANUARY 2-12) AS LOT S125.
