In terms of design, the 488 Spider has some substantial differences from the coupé version. One of the most significant are the buttresses that are placed behind the two seats. These elements are designed to send the air flow into the engine cover and the air inlets. Another change is the introduction of an adjustable glass which allows to control the circulation of air inside the cabin. This element can be pushed down with the roof on to increase the engine sound inside the vehicle.
 
The engine on the 488 Spider is the same featured on the 488 GTB. According to Ferrari the model reaches 100km/h in 3.0 seconds and 200km/h in 8.7 seconds. The maximum speed is set at 326km/h.
