Fernando Alonso Tests The Ferrari 458 Spider In Maranello: Video

Follow Viknesh

Right before the start of this weekend’s 2011 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso wanted to try out the new Ferrari 458 Spider, even though the car isn’t set for its world debut until the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show on September 13.

We’re sure being the automaker’s star race driver helped him in getting his hands on a set of keys for the sultry new hard-top convertible earlier than most.

In the video below, Alonso drives the 458 Spider right out of the Ferrari factory and onto some of the surrounding roads in Maranello.

After his short test, the Spaniard praises the car's exceptional handling and engine sound when the top is down.
