It seems as if Fifth Gear pumps out test drives faster than their competitor Top Gear. While not as entertaining as Top Gear, Fifth Gear is still a legit form of European car porn. On the show’s latest episode, the crew took the new Ferrari 458 Spider for a spin.

Refresher: The Ferrari 458 Spider is powered by the same 4.5L V8 producing 570-hp at 9,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 398 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm. Mated to a dual-clutch 7-speed F1 gearbox, 0 to 62 mph come in 3.4 seconds (same as coupe) with a top speed of 198 mph (a drop of 2 mph when compared to the coupe). The Ferrari 458 Spider’s top comes down in just 14 seconds. Prices start at $275,000.
