This 1/43 Matte Black Hot Wheels diecast model Ferrari 458 Spider is a stunning replica of the highest quality. As always, the Hot Wheels design team have put everything they have got into providing a faithful representation of this excellent model.
The 458 Spider was premiered at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. This convertible variant of the 458 Italia features an aluminium retractable hardtop which, according to Ferrari, weighs 25 kilograms (55 lb) less than a soft roof such as the one found on the Ferrari F430 Spider, and can be opened in 14 seconds. The engine cover has been redesigned to accommodate the retractable roof system. Ferrari plans to make 1,500-2,000 458 Spiders every year. It has the same 0–100 km/h time as the hard-top but has a lower top speed 199 mph (320 km/h).
In keeping with Ferrari tradition the body was designed by Pininfarina. The car’s exterior styling and features were designed for aerodynamic efficiency, producing a downforce of 140 kg (309 lb) at 200 kilometres per hour (120 mph). In particular, the front grille features deformable winglets that lower at high speeds, in order to offer reduced drag. The car’s interior was designed using input from former Ferrari Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher; in a layout common to racing cars, the new steering wheel incorporates many controls normally located on the dashboard or on stalks, such as turning signals or high beams.
At its top speed of 200+mph, the engine is absolutely screaming. This 562 horsepower car is a monster on the highway, holding the title of the highest specific output piston petrol engine in any road-going production car, until the 458 Speciale raised this record marginally. The car mutates as it gains speed, with vents opening and winglets unfolding, all in the name of higher speed, better performance and a better drag co-efficient. This all means the 458 is one of the most impressive cars in the Ferrari line, as they are always improving their models. Unlike the classics, this car isn’t brilliant for its time, its simply brilliant.
This Hot Wheels diecast model Ferrari 458 Spider Elite comes brand new, sealed in its original factory packaging in order to maintain its status as a mint condition collector’s item.
