2012 - Ferrari 458 Italia Spider concept render

It's been a few days ago since some rumors were spread that Ferrari is working on the drop-top 458 and it will likely feature a folding hard-top.

 

This won’t be the first Ferrari to adopt a retracting hard-top, since this feature has been available on the current California model for a couple of years now. A 180-degree rotating roof was also offered on the 575 Super America model, which had a special glass roof.
