Open-top V8 Ferrari debuts in Oman

Alfardan Motors, the official dealer of Ferrari in Oman, unveiled the F8 Spider, the new generation drop-top sports car, at an exclusive customer event held at the Alfardan Motors Ferrari showroom. The event was attended by a group of esteemed customers and prospective owners who were also able to test-drive the all-new Ferrari F8 Tributo.

The Ferrari F8 Spider was designed in parallel with the F8 Tributoberlinetta and features the Prancing Horse’s compact and efficient RHT (Retractable Hard Top) which influences the lines of a model that leads its category.

The F8 Spider is the latest addition to an exclusive and prestigious bloodline of open-top V8 cars that began with the 308 GTS in 1977. It is less extreme than the 488 Pista Spider, but sportier than the 488 Spider which it replaces in the range.

Consequently, the F8 Spider sets a new benchmark for the ‘en plein air’ sports car in terms of usable performance and exceptional handling, providing an incredibly rewarding driving experience. In fact, it excels in merging handling dynamics with surprising in-car comfort.

This Ferrari spider thus combines the characteristics of the most lauded 8-cylinder engine in history with unparalleled driving pleasure.

The V8 has raised the performance bar to unprecedented new heights, not only for turbo engines but power units of all types. The engine is a development of the V8 that won the ‘International Engine of the Year Award’ for four consecutive years (2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019) and that was also selected as the best engine of the last two decades. An incredible feat unmatched in the history of the awards.
