The F8 Spider continues the directions that begin with the F8 Tributo which bridges a new design style that will continue to emphasize the main characteristics of Ferrari, namely high performance and extreme aerodynamic efficiency.
When designing Spiders the choice of the top will always play a fundamental role in the overall look of the car. Over the past few years, Ferrari has adopted a harsh upper section because of its comfort. Thus, the F8 Spider’s line design is made based on Retractable Hard Top.
The key to the overall design lies in shifting the dividing line between the car body and the roof from its conventional position in the beltline to the top of the B-pillar. Thus, the top itself is more compact and has two dimensions, so it can be divided into two parts and stored on top of the machine.
The rear spoiler was completely redesigned, making it bigger and enclosing the area around the taillights, and visibly lowering the center of gravity of the car and allowing the return of the classic twin lamp cluster and matching colors between the tail and the body of the car.

The dashboard is made of aluminum panels that support the center, extending to the dashboard itself. In order to create a light impression, a piece of carbon fiber is placed as a divider between the top and bottom, which forms the contour of the display. This section also includes an optional 7-inch screen. The dashboard is equipped with classic instruments with the main RPM.
The tunnel is clearly separated from the dashboard and located underneath it to reinforce the light impression that arises from the car’s interior design. There is a kind of connector that looks floating and gives the cabin a contoured feel.
