The comparison that was bound to happen. Both had official live reveals at Frankfurt only days ago, so now it’s time to discuss which one is the ultimate mid-engined, open top supercar.
Can there really even be a favorite here, or will the decision simply come down to those siding with their always-favorite Italian carmaker? Will anyone switch sides? On paper, both the Ferrari 488 Spider and Lamborghini Huracan Spyder have monstrous output figures, 660 hp and 610 hp, respectively.
The Huracan may be naturally aspirated but, holy crap, the 488 has close to the same output as the V12-powered Aventador (691 ponies). Both have state-of-the-art folding hard tops that ensure both structural rigidity and performance when compared to their coupe counterparts.
Pricing? Look, if you’re in the market for either one, money isn’t an issue to begin with. What it really comes down to is personal preference and, perhaps, loyalty. So, are you a Ferrari or Lamborghini lover?
