The Ferrari 488 Spider is more than two years old now, but it still looks sexy even today. It’s also one of the quickest convertibles in the world with its 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) run in only three seconds. Under the hood is a 3.9-liter V8 engine.

Can it become even better? Of course, there's always room for improvement, if you ask the tuning companies. And by better Carlex Design means giving it a lavish interior with a new combination of materials and colors, never seen before on the 488 Spider.

There's a hotter 488 about to break cover:

Tthe tuners have used different shades of blue and dark blue as main colors for the high-quality leather and Alcantara, which cover basically every surface of the supercar's cabin – the seats, carpets, door cards, armrest, dashboard, and even the steering wheel. A yellow contrasting cord has been added as an accent to the leather-Alcantara mix, while the perforated areas of the seats and armrest have gained yellow inserts.

The exterior remains in its factory form, but it’s hard to say the design of the 488 Spider needs any corrections. As standard, the vehicle features a retractable hard top, identical to the one in the 458 Spider, but some 55 pounds (25 kilograms) lighter. The electrically-controlled roof needs only 14 seconds to fully deploy even when the car is in motion. The improved hard top design boosts the chassis' performance by 23 percent compared to the 458 Spider, the car’s direct predecessor. Simply put, nothing should be touched here.

The engine also carries on with no changes, which means it’s good for 670 horsepower (493 kilowatts) and 561 pound-feet (760 Newton-meters) of torque. Aside from the impressive acceleration from a standstill to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.0 seconds, it also provides an equally impressive sprint from 0 to 124 mph (0-200 kph) in only 8.7 seconds.
