The Altitude package adds some paint and plastic to give the Wrangler unique style. A body color hardtop, paint matched center bumper sections, 18-inch alloy wheels painted black with a matte Jeep badge make up the Altitude edition package along with a Mopar black fuel door and a black tone on tone hood graphic. Deep cherry red, black, bright white and bright silver metallic are the four paint colors offered with the special edition package.
Ferrari lifted the covers off the new 458 Spider featuring an aluminum retractable roof that opens and closes in 14 seconeds.
The Ferrari 458 Spider is powered by the same 4.5 liter V8 engine as the 458 Italia, which means 562 hp at 9000 rpm. Top speed is rated at 198.8 mph with a 0-62 mph time of under 3.4 seconds.
Helping produce those figures is the hard top. The aluminum roof – a first for a mid-engined car – fits just in front of the engine compartment without aerodynamics or performance taking a hit. The roof takes about 14 seconds to open or close.
