At the Japanese unveiling of the Ferrari 458 Spider, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa were on hand to support a charity auction for the earthquake-ravaged city of Ishinomaki.

With the help of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, Ferrari has unveiled the 458 Spider in Tokyo.

While we've already seen the model in Frankfurt, the two drivers were on hand to support a charity auction for the earthquake-ravaged city of Ishinomaki. Thanks to the event, and previous donations, Ferrari has collected over 70 million yen ($911,100 / €663,600) which will be donated to rebuild two after-school facilities.

As we have previously reported, the $257,000 (€226,800) convertible has an aluminum folding hard-top and a 4.5-liter V8 engine with 570 PS (425 kW / 563 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque.
