A play thing of the rich and famous, the Ferrari 458 Spider is a rear-wheel drive sports car that features the engine in the middle. It has been a part of Ferrari's production schedule since 2011, a couple of years after the manufacturing run of the Ferrari F30 ended. As with many Ferrari's the 458 Spider comes from the assembly plant in Maranello, Italy. This sports car features a 270-cubic inch, 4.5-liter Ferrari/Maserati F136 direct fuel injection V8 engine married to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. This setup achieves 562 horsepower at 9,000 revolutions per minute, 398 lbs. per foot of torque at 6,000 rpms and reaches a top speed of 199 mph. The 458 Spider is a convertible with a retractable hardtop. Other variants of the Ferrari 458s include the Italia, Italia Special Edition, Speciale, and Speciale A, all similar in design to the Ferrari 458 Spider. Because the 458 Spider is at the upper end of cost for sports cars, it is not something for everyone's budget. However, what is accessible for fans of the car are the number of different 1:18 Ferrari 458 Spider die-cast cars available as part of the vast inventory on eBay, as well as other toy cars, such as those from Hot Wheels. Whether you can afford the real thing or have to settle for dreaming while enjoying the die-cast version, the Ferrari 458 Spider is a remarkable automobile.
