Capristo Opens Up a Window for Ferrari 458 Spider


If there was one thing you could change on the Ferrari 458 Spider, what would it be? Well, the answer to that question really depends on whom you ask, but for German tuner Capristo, which specializes on exhaust systems, it would be the open-top supercar's engine cover.

You see, contrast to the 458 Italia Coupe that sports a window pane offering a clear view of the car's high-revving V8 powerhouse, the Spider was designed with a regular vented hood.

Capristo solved the problem by designing a new engine cover made from lightweight carbon fiber that incorporates a window in the center and additional air outlets (four instead of three) laid on top of each other on either side.

The cost of the new custom-made hood is €9,800 or about US$12,800 and can be painted to match the car's body color.
