720ps Ferrari F8 Spider now in Malaysia - 2.9 sec / 770nm / 1,400kg



2.9 sec / 720ps / 770nm / 8,000rpm 3.9L V8 twin turbo / dry sump / 7 speed DCT / E-Diff / 1,400kg / 340kmh / RM1,178,000 before duty and options

Also revealed today is the recently spawned F8 spider, alongside the new 812 GTS spider SEA debut at Naza Italia's KL Ferrari showroom.



This new F8 Spider represents the Prancing Horse's latest stable of drop top stallions, which utilizes their new and compact RHT (Retractable Hard Top) architecture and as you've noticed on the 812 GTS, can substantially influence a Ferrari spider's physique, so it is more comprehensive than just wiring a couple of motors and a roof chop.



For reference sake, this F8 spider replaces the older 488 spider and pushes 50ps more, however it is still half a step behind the more extreme 488 Pista race horse. Also 20kg heavier naturally.

The 720ps / 770nm mid-rear-engined drop-top F8 continues to be propelled by Ferrari's most successful V8, but now include goodies from the 488 Pista's engine weight reduction programme. It'd shaved 18kg off the 488 spider's engine, even reduced rotational mass by employing titanium conrods, crankshaft and flywheel for starters.



They've also utilized the 488 Challenge's inconel exhaust manifold to further cut weight by 9.7kg.
Speaking of exhaust, the F8 Spider is said to feature its own V8 soundtrack via extensively tuned extractor plumbing.



This V8TT features Ferrari's "Wall Effect" rev limiter whereby instead of gradually cutting the rpms toward redline, the "Wall Effect" limiter allow full vigour of its rpm range and will stop the revs dead at 8,000 before the next gear, which Ferrari claims could improve straight line acceleration, therefore better laptimes.



The F8 spider's RHT Retractable Hard Top is similar to that of the 812 GTS, which work at speeds below 45kmh, take 14 secs to open and feature 2 provocative mounds on the tonneau cover. There's a lot going on in the rear of the F8 spider as promised by the RHT effort, even includes motorsport swan-neck inspired tonneau cover fins, which flow rearwards.

If you're keen, the F8 spider will be available for private viewing from now till 31 May 2020 at the Ferrari Malaysia Showroom

You're gonna get the wallpaper stolen very often for sure. But Yes I think you'd have the audience.

I wonder why Ferrari chose silver... feels boring to me. Yawn.

Sure, red may be overdone. But silver is so boring. It’s what bare metal look like. Maybe it’s the carbon fiber body pretending to be a metal body.

Could have went with a shade of yellow maybe. Blue. ‍♂

the blue came last year but in coupe form:

That blue is nice, and nice touch in the blue suit by I forgot his name.

I realize loud colors is a Lamborghini thing, but I’d sooner take a shade of grey (apparently there are 50 shades) over silver. Maybe you can ask them why, and hear their rationale. If the marketing rep can’t concoct a valid story, you should tell their boss to fire the rep and hire me. Hahaha

If I remember correctly, this silver (Argento Nurburgring) was a homage to Silver Arrows Mercedes (which itself a bare metal). They even offer British Racing Green colour (Verde British).

Like the blue as well but prefer a bit lighter shade (something like Smarties/French/Gordini blue).

assuming you’re right, exactly what I said, bare metal. Ferrari must have ran out of colors, or rather, inspiration for colors. That’s just lazy imo.

Or their target market are people above certain age limit where certain colours offend them?

Saw a red Bezza yesterday, i think its P2 new red colour, kinda dark tone of red....if this Ferrari stop at the traffic light beside that Bezza, i wont notice the Ferrari.

Looking at the pic showing the recommended engine oil to be used for the car makes me smile and feel good this 'no so Raya' morning....

Both my everyday car are using the same engine oil, bought from normal supermarket.
