Ferrari 458 Spider
For all those out there wondering and dreaming about what you would do if you owned a brand new Ferrari 458 Spider can now put your dreams to the test with the Ferrari 458 Spider Configurator online. Ferrari allows the user to test all 38 colors and match them to available interior options and custom wheel packages. Best of all, the Ferrari 458 Spider configurator does not display any prices for these custom upgrades keeping the dream alive for all those who can’t afford to buy.
German-based tuner company Mansory has taken inspiration from the Ferrari Enzo for its latest creation, the Ferrari 458 Spider Monaco Edition. The reference to Enzo styling is very obvious in the front nose cone of the 458 Monaco Edition along with a new skirt with bigger intakes all made out of carbon fiber. Mansory brags that these new carbon fiber pieces reduce the weight of the Ferrari 458 by over 130 pounds. The interior of the 458 Spider Monaco Edition receives an upholstery upgrade consisting of leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber done in a pleasant combination of red and white.
Mansory matched these new body styling components and interior upgrades with a new engine management system, a sports air filer and a sports-tuned exhaust system. Additional touches on the 458 Spider Monaco Edition include fitted sports shock absorbers with lowering springs that drop the ride height by 20mm, the Monaco Edition will be sitting on 20 inch wheels in the front and 21 inch wheels in the back. This upgrade in performance boosts the Ferrari 458’s power to 590 horsepower with a 0-60 of just 3.2 seconds while reaching a top speed of 205 mph.
Just three of these are being made, no word yet on pricing.
You would think that a bright yellow Ferrari 458 Spider would be hard to miss just by the mere sound that a Ferrari makes or by the attention that it demands at all time or maybe just because it’s BRIGHT YELLOW. Obviously that wasn’t the case for a police officer who ran into the back of this poor unsuspecting Ferrari while the cop was attempting to perform a 3 point turn on the narrow streets of London. People passing by can be heard on the video breaking out into laughter at the sight of this spectacle. To make matters worse, when the BMW police vehicle backs out of the collision, it takes the rear bumper off of the Ferrari!
Video of the London police at their best was uploaded by the Supercars of London and has been viewed more than 43,000 times and that’s just in the last 24 hours! The uploader of the video had this to say “The laughing is by far my favorite bit! It’s a situation you just have to laugh at…unless you’re the Ferrari owner”
Law enforcement has confirmed that this event did take place with the following response: “We can confirm a police car was in a collision with a Ferrari. No one was injured during the collision and no arrests were made.”
