Ferrari releases the first batch of photos of the 458 Italia Spider

Leaked photos always have a way of forcing automakers to scramble on how to proceed when launching a new vehicle and the leaked images of the Ferrari 458 Italia Spider just might have forced Ferrari to show its hand earlier than they wanted. Now, all this is a matter of speculation and it just might be coincidence altogether, but in any case, the Italian automaker not only released the first official teaser of the 458 Italia Spider, but followed that up with the the first batch of official photos featuring the much-talked about top-down supercar

There’s no need to strain any muscles on the validity of these photos because they’ve officially come straight from the Prancing Horse’s mouth. Or in this case, their Facebook page.

Whether Ferrari was forced to show their images earlier than they wanted because of the leaked photos is irrelevant now. What’s important is that we finally get to see the 458 Italia Spider in all its awesome glory.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I always get excited when Ferrari makes another great ideas coming up to their cars. I have to admit that no one beat Ferrari from the engines up to the designs and sexy girls.

Since Ferrari already released the first batch of photos of their Italia Spyder, I’m pretty sure that buyers have itchy hands now on when they can handle this car. Ferrari must build this car as soon as possible.

Oh yeah, this car is so gorgeous! I’m really impressed with the speed performance of the vehicle. I was thinking if they are going to boost the speed performance of the vehicle or what?

Finally, they are making a newer production for this vehicle! I was captivated with the elegance and luxurious styling of the car. I wonder if there’s a boost in the speed performance of vehicle?
