The 458 Spider is so good, that we imagine more than a few die-hard coupe fans might find themselves wavering for the first time. It’s a shame they’ve softened it across the board without offering the option of leaving it alone.

For those who appreciate the sense of speed and freedom that come with open-air driving, the Ferrari 458 Spider represents nirvana. Because the Ferrari 458 Spider is the second-best car I’ve ever driven.

Despite some very compelling evidence to the contrary, the Ferrari 458 Spider is not actually perfect. But it is a spectacular car.

The Ferrari 458 Spider was purpose-built for the guy more interested in experiencing all of the pleasures, aural and otherwise, the world’s best driver’s car has to offer.

The 458 Italia makes you feel alive, partly because you can easily imagine dying inside it. Those stars in your eyes are actually oncoming stoplights.

Make no mistake: In the 458 Italia Spider, you will be seen. Fascinating design, exquisite stick-and-rudder handling, raw power like Samson on Rogaine, the Italia is absolutely one of the two or three best sports cars in the world. Cutting the top off doesn’t make it any subtler, however.

There is no reason in this world other than a lack of funds not to lust after a Ferrari 458 Spider. This most ingenious convertible iteration of the world’s best sports car is devilishly quick and amazingly agile.

The new Ferrari 458 Italia is a most fitting successor to the F430. On the track at Fiorano, the 458 is a treat. It feels like a race car. Response is crisp from the throttle, steering and brakes.

The 458 Italia is incredible. In one generation, it’s managed to improve on all the things we’ve come to expect from Ferrari, and fix all of the drawbacks as well. It’s the first Ferrari we’ve ever driven that we’d truly consider using as a daily driver.
