FERRARI'S 458 Spider trophy cabinet is overflowing.

Readers of the German car magazine Auto Motor und Sport have crowned the Ferrari 458 Spider the "Best Imported Cabriolet" in its annual "Best Cars" poll.

It's the second time the 458 Spider has won this category, and it's the 15th time that a convertible Ferrari has received this award. The trophy was presented by Auto Motor und Sport Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Alex, to Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa at the prize-giving ceremony held in Stuttgart.

The 458 Spider continues the long tradition of Ferrari mid-engined V8 convertibles and is the first mid-engined model to feature a folding hard-top combining performance and style perfectly.

The engine powering the car - the 4.5-litre V8 - has also been in the spotlight, having won the International Engine of the Year award for two consecutive years in 2011 and 2012. This engine is coupled with Ferrari's dual-clutch F1 paddle-shift transmission which delivers 0-100 kmh acceleration in less than 3.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 320kmh.

Overall the 458 - in both the Italia coupe and the Spider versions - has received more than 50 awards worldwide and is one of the most recognised and successful models in the history of Ferrari.
