The Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M completed the hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of speed in 59 seconds. Check it out on video as it tames the hill not just quickly but with boastful aural authority as well.
Ferrari showed off three of its latest supercars to fans at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Spectators were appropriately treated to a show of speed when the three Italian stallions completed the 1.16 mile Sunday Times Supercar Run hillclimb. Present were the Scuderia Spider 16M, the 599 GTB Fiorano with the HGTE package and the baby California.
The 510hp (375kW) Scuderia Spider swept over the hillclimb in a time of 59 seconds and there is video to prove it. Similarly the other two did well on the challenge and they too are on video to show it all off. Depending on who is asked the blue skies that prevailed through the weekend were quite welcome, although a few drops of rain might have made things even more spectator-friendly.
The California represents a completely new range for Ferrari. Under its bonnet blows a 4.3-litre V8 producing 460hp (338kW) and 485Nm of torque. First revealed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show the 599 GTB Fiorano HGTE was recently shaken down quite thoroughly by none other than one Michael Schumacher in a spectacular video. It is a race-spec road car with features like a stiffened suspension, modified damper settings and a new sport exhaust sound.
