Following the reveal of the Ferrari 488 GTB coupé at the March 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari has been spotted testing its upcoming Ferrari 488 GTS Spider. The variant on the GTB was seen undergoing tests near the Ferrari production facility in Maranello, Italy, displaying a number of design cues that are new for this model.
At the rear, the Ferrari 488 GTS Spider features a small vertical window, similar to other mid-engined convertibles currently available. Ferrari has installed a new decklid to the vehicle, which includes a small glass engine cover which may be unique to the 488 GTS Spider. A primary focus of the exterior is the folding hardtop, which is predicted to be constructed from lightweight aluminium.
The 488 GTS Spider will use the same powertrain as the 488 GTB coupé; a 3.9-litre capacity V8 engine, capable of giving a power output of 651bhp.
