2013 Ferrari 458 Spider review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The mid-engine two-seat Ferrari 458 is radical looking from any angle. From the front, the trailing headlight LEDs and strange slits in the bodywork are completely original. While they’re unique, they still speak to the Ferrari faithful.

Far more provocative, however, is the rear and its bulging fenders. The 458 Italia’s coupe profile is probably the one that’s most distressing to Ferrari fans because the back half looks enormous compared to the hood. The front bumper has two unique aerodynamic winglets that direct air around the car for more down force.

The 458 Spider features a power-retractable hardtop that opens and closes in just 14 seconds, according to Ferrari. A glass wind deflector automatically raises and lowers between the head restraints for maximum comfort during open-air driving. An issue with most convertibles is available cargo space when the top is down, but in the 458 Spider there’s additional space behind the seats for more luggage or even a golf bag.

The car’s 4.5-liter V-8 engine is good for 570 horsepower and a zero-to-62-mph time of 3.4 seconds. Ferrari claims the 458 Italia has a top speed of 202 mph while the 458 Spider convertible manages 199 mph. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is controlled only by paddle shifters on the racing-inspired steering wheel, and dual electronic gauges frame a center tachometer. Because the engine sits behind the seats, the coupe’s weight is balanced 42/58, front to rear, which should make for fun days at the track.

This is the 5th excellent Ferrari I've owned.

It is impossible to accurately describe the amazing feeling I experience every time I get behind the wheel of my 458 Spider. It is truly my "no stress zone"!

OVER PRICE

LESS THAN 10,000 MILES, THE ENGINE HAVE TO BE REPLACE. TURN SIGNAL SWITCH AND ENGINE COMPARTMENT WAS A BAD DESIGN. STOP AND GO TRAFFIC RIDE WAS NOT SMOOTH. STEREO AND A/C LOOK NICE IF IT HAS A DIGITAL MONITOR LIKE TESLA.. THE HORSEPOWER WAS GREAT AND EXTERIOR LOOK SHARP. WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THE MANUAL SEAT HANDLE. ELECTRIC WOULD BE NICE
