The 3.9-litre twin turbocharged V8 that arrived in the Ferrari 488 GTB has won a lot of awards, you see. So when they introduced that car's replacement, they named the car after it.
And then, as is Ferrari's way, it took the roof off to make a Spider, and this is it.
The F8 Spider still has that 3.9-litre V8, making 710bhp and 568lb ft of torque, which is good enough to make it go from 0-60mph in 2.9sec and onto a top speed of 211mph. Which should be plenty, even though this car carries a 70kg penalty over the coupe.
But what else, if anything, do you gain by having a roofless version of the F8? Join Matt Prior as he tests it on UK roads, and wonders which convertible supercar you should have: the F8 Spider, a McLaren 720S Spider, or a Lamborghini Huracan Spyder?
