Ferrari 488 Spider convertible (2015 - )

Considering how much it costs (which is a lot), there are a few things we’d like to see improved on the 488 Spider, but in the areas that really matter - namely the chassis and the engine - it’s one of the greatest convertible sports cars you can buy. If the experience behind the wheel is what matters most to you, then you can do no better than this.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

For a car that costs north of £200,000, and comes with a badge most associate with high-end luxury, you might be a bit disappointed with the 488 Spider’s interior. It’s not bad – everything feels solidly screwed together – but it’s not anything to take your breath away. Infotainment systems like the sat-nav, stereo system and all manner of technical information are displayed on two screens to either side of the main instrument panel, and awkwardly controlled by two (different) interfaces, neither of which are particularly easy to get to grips with on the move. However, all the important things are just right. The seating position is adjustable and drops into the floor pan to put you in the best place to appreciate the handling, and the Formula 1-inspired steering wheel contains all the main controls, rather than outsourcing them to stalks, which, if nothing else, looks cool. Engine start and headlight flasher buttons, and the stylish manettino switch that controls the car’s modes, all add to the sense of occasion, although we did find the wheel-mounted indicator switches a bit awkward to use at times.
