Ferrari 458 Spider and Ferrari California make Goodwood debut

Ferrari showed not one, but two UK debuts at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The mid-rear engined two-seater 458 Spider features a fully retractable aluminium hard-top roof. The folding hard-top is 25kg lighter than a traditional soft-top while being both quieter and more thermally efficient.

Also making its debut was the new lighter and more powerful Ferrari California 30. The front-mid mounted V8 now has 490hp, an addition of 30hp, with overall weight also being reduced by 30kg, which has been achieved through aluminium fabrication techniques and construction technologies.

Alongside these two UK debuts was the Ferrari FF, the V12-powered four-seater flagship of the Ferrari range. This is Ferrari’s first vehicle to feature the 4RM four-wheel drive system which allows up to 30% of the V12’s 660hp engine to be transferred to the front axle in low grip situations.
