Maranello, 07 October
Ferrari has been honoured to receive a very prestigious award from The Sunday Times Driving, the motoring section of the UK's most influential quality newspaper, with the 458 Spider announced as the “Best Sports Car and Convertible” in a special edition issue celebrating the Top 100 Cars on sale today. In its review of the Top 100 Cars, The Sunday Times Driving commented: “This car is simply sublime. A 458 is not a pure-bred sports car. Yes, it drives like one, but it’s also a singer and a model and an athlete. It’s a heptathlete with the lungs of Pavarotti and the face of an angel. The best convertible sports car on the market.” The 458 Spider continues a long tradition of mid-engined V8 convertibles for Ferrari, but this is the first time that a mid-engined sports car has featured a folding hard-top, making it a perfect combination of performance and glamorous style. This award is yet another trophy in the cabinet for the 458 Spider, and it will sit alongside the BBC Top Gear Magazine’s “Cabriolet of the Year” in 2011, and also the two consecutive awards from the International Engine of the Year in 2011 and 2012 for the “Best Performance Engine” in the category over 4 litres, for the naturally-aspirated 4.5 litre V8 which is shared by the 458 Spider and the 458 Italia.
