The F430 Spider boasts a compact, fully automatic electric hood that allows the
engine to be seen in all its glory at all times and which, once lowered, takes
up relatively little space, despite the uncompromising central-rear engine layout.
The F430 Spider is powered by Ferrari's new 490 hp, 4,308cc 90° V8 which is
capable of pushing the car to a top speed of over 193 mph and
covering the 0-60 mph sprint in just 4 seconds. This
lightweight and highly compact power unit produces a specific output of 114 hp
per liter with a weight-to-power ratio of 6.4 lbs per horsepower (dry weight).
