Fernando Alonso behind the wheel of the 458 Spider

Maranello, 9 September – Right before the start of the race weekend of the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, Fernando Alonso wanted to try the new 458 Spider, which will be presented at the IAA Frankfurt next Tuesday. The Scuderia Ferrari driver enjoyed the potential of the 8-cylinder mid-rear engine from the Prancing Horse – with hard top and fitted with the same most advanced technological content as the multi-awarded 458 Italia and now available in an “en plein air” version – on the roads around Maranello. Alonso was extremely satisfied with the perfect combination of high performance, exceptional handling and the engine sound the 458 Spider is able to deliver.
