This Ferrari 488 Spider is a stunning open-top supercar, presented in a superb factory colour scheme and with a high specification. It is powered by the 661bhp 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, driven through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shift. The odometer currently shows 7,162 miles from new.

First registered in May 2018, there are two previous keepers on the log book, and the seller acquired the car just over seven months ago. It comes with the full balance of the original Ferrari factory warranty as well as the seven-year service programme.

The bodywork and paint are in superb condition, with no accident damage, dents or scratches, and with the seller noting only one small stone chip on the bonnet. Otherwise, the Blu Tour de France finish is described as being genuinely pristine. It is protected by full paint protection film applied by Topaz Detailing in London, with the exception of the front bumper that has been repainted but has not had the film reapplied.

The exterior is accented by carbon-fibre side air splitters and rear air ducts, carbon-fibre B-pillar trims, and a carbon-fibre fascia for the rear fog lamp. It was also specified with the sport sill covers, Scuderia Ferrari wing shields, and with yellow brake calipers for the carbon-ceramic discs. For convenience in town, the car is equipped with the suspension lift system.

A high carbon-fibre specification also runs through the cabin, including the lightweight racing seats, air vent and instrument gauge surrounds, the LED steering wheel, central bridge, and the gear shift paddles. The Beige Tradizione leather upholstery is a wonderful match for the exterior hue, and it is embellished with dark blue stitching - including for the embroidered Cavallino motifs on the headrests, and the floor mat logos.

Factory-fitted equipment includes dual-zone climate control, parking camera, and the adaptive headlight system. The car was also optioned with the passenger display screen - incorporating gear, revs, and speed readout - as well as Apple CarPlay and the JBL premium Hi-Fi upgrade.

The most recent scheduled maintenance was a second year service carried out in June 2020 at 7,026 miles, carried out at Dick Lovett, which also included renewal of the brake fluid. Its first annual service took place in May 2019 at 3,011 miles at Meridien Modena. The car remains in excellent mechanical condition, and its first annual MOT test is not due until May 2021.

Accompanying this 488 Spider are all of the original books, including the stamped service record, along with a Ferrari car cover and trickle charger, tyre inflator kit, and the tools and fuses.

This Ferrari 488 Spider is a superb example of the marque’s latest mid-engined marvel, boasting a timeless and tasteful colour combination that always turns heads. Its extensive specification incorporates a discerning level of carbon-fibre trim, as well as numerous desirable factory options. The car presents in beautiful condition throughout, with comprehensive history, and benefits from the balance of its original warranty and service plan for additional peace of mind.
