Al Tayer Motors, one of the UAE’s premier automobile dealerships and exclusive Ferrari importer-dealer, will showcase the Ferrari 458 Spider at the Dubai International Motor Show to be held from November 10 - 14.
Ferrari’s exciting new 8-cylinder convertible, the 458 Spider, will share the spotlight with the Ferrari FF and an exclusive customised Ferrari California that epitomises the new Tailor-Made programme announced by Ferrari.
“This year we are pleased to showcase some of the very latest products from the prancing horse marque that made their international debut very recently. Motoring enthusiasts will have the opportunity to see the 458 Spider, which is sure to be one of the star attractions of this year’s event,” said Hossam Hosni, General Manager – Luxury Auto, Al Tayer Motors.
The new 458 Spider joins the 458 Italia, widening the range of Ferrari’s mid-rear engined V8s and offering the same uncompromising technological solutions, handling and performance in a refined open-top configuration. It is equipped with a Ferrari-patented fully retractable hard top - a world first for a sports car with this lay-out.
The 458 Spider is powered by Ferrari’s naturally-aspirated, direct-injection 4.5 litre V8 which was nominated as the 2011 International Engine of the Year for its engineering excellence in terms of driveability, performance, economy and refinement. The power is transferred to the road by Ferrari’s class-leading dual-clutch F1 paddle-shift transmission through the sophisticated E-Diff, itself integrated with the F1-Trac traction control and high-performance ABS for maximum handling dynamics.
Ferrari will also have an area of the stand dedicated to the Tailor-Made Programme, which will enable owners to reach an even more personal level of distinctiveness with the specification of their cars.
The Tailor-Made Programme provides clients with an extensive range of exclusive cloth trim, colours, finishes and technical materials for a final specification inspired by unique classic Ferraris and by motor racing. The selection is available in three innovative collections - Classica, Scuderia and Inedita – specifically conceived by Ferrari’s Styling centre.
