2013 Ferrari 458 Spider Verde Kers-Lucido

Posted on by  

On the U.S. market, a standard Ferrari 458 Spider is priced at $257,000. So, why is this version priced at $459,900? The answer is simple: because it is the only Verde-Kers-Lucido 458 Spider in the U.S. and one of two in the world built up to this point.

What’s so special about this paint? To be honest with you nothing much, it is just the same green paint job applied to the Hy-Kers 599 hybrid test car unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.

This particular model has only 967 miles on its ticker and comes with lots of carbon-fiber insertions on the interior. The model sits on 20-inch forged dark-painted rims wrapped in Michelin tires and features Scuderia Ferrari shields. Other standard equipment includes: a front wing in carbon fiber, rear molding also in carbon fiber and diamond stitching in Nero.

Ferrari 458 Italia Spider

The 458 Italia Spider is powered by the same 4.5-liter V-8 engine as the hard-top version. The resulting output remains at 570 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 400 pound-feet of torque at 6,000 rpm. This powerful engine mates to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission that pushes the power through an electronic differential. The supercar hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 198 mph.

On the U.S. market, the 458 Italia Spider is priced from $257,000.
