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.
