2016 Ferrari 488 Spider: The Simple Pleasures! – Ignition Ep. 164

On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), host Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of the 661hp Ferrari 488 Spider. Common wisdom (and physics) dictates that hardtop convertibles must be heavier and slower than their less-complex coupe counterparts. But why does that matter? Convertibles are all about the experience and simple joys of driving. The 488 Spider takes an elaborate route to deliver those joys, from a high-revving, small-displacement, twin-turbo V-8 to electronically controlled shocks and differential. Join Lago as he takes the-oh-so-arduous task of finding out if that intricacy obfuscates the experience.

Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend Youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend

    This ferrari costs 400k? Oh shit! I can buy personal 2-floor house in chicago. BUT HOUSE DOESN'T HAVE 3sec 0-60 :)Overall, it is very expensive. As for me, it is better to buy lamborghini, dodge charger hellcat and ford f-150 )) however, it is my point of view and you can have your totally different from mine. Good luck to everybody :)

    Great video, I reviewed one on my YouTube channel as well. This and the 2006 Ford GT are the best cars I have ever reviewed

    Finally Carlos is back. Hopefully no more having to settle with the other two annoying hosts just to watch a good car channel. Also randy is cool so he's good.
