Click for more 430 Scuderia Spider renderings in hi res

Lies. Damn lies and speculation. Rumor would be another way to put it, as word of a potential convertible version of the 430 Scuderia spreads across cyberspace. Tentatively referred to as the 430 Scuderia Spider, the roadster would naturally be based on the lightweight, Enzo-rivaling 430 Scuderia supercar, but with the roof chopped off.

Various reports have given conflicting information about what kind of roof mechanism would be fitted to the Spideria, including a retractable hard-top similar to that found on the new California, a manual cloth roof to keep weight down, or the same automatic fabric top from the conventional F430 Spider. Or maybe no roof at all, who knows. The wide range of speculation leads us to chalk this up to pure rumor. The removal of structural rigidity and the addition of weight would seem antithetical to the Scuderia's entire raison d'etre. However the prevailing reports suggest that the Spider will also get the California's new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, be produced in a limited series of 300 and be unveiled on November 5 at the Ferrari Challenge weekend in Mugello... the same event where Ferrari unveiled the FXX Evoluzione last year. Jon Sibal, the skilled supercar illustrator we've come to know and trust, has presented a few renderings of what the 430 Scuderia Spider could look like, which in our eye looks right on the money and you can see for yourself in the gallery below.

      F430 is the best looking Ferrari, and this just adds to the beauty.

      Ferrari is just the car everyone dream of.
      This car is the fastest and the worlds most popular car.
      The new spider look of the Scuderia Spider makes it look to cool and tough.

      Excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: No truth is universal, everything has its exception. Thanks for the info. [url=http://www.onlinemedicalstore.net]Generic Viagra[/url]

      Any chance this will come with a digital camera to photograph anyone with the temerity to attempt to pass it? The photograph of the offending dolt will be forwarded to the Race Stewards from the Belgian F1 race so the driver can be given a 25 second penalty for his blatant disregard for road etiquette.

      me: sure, but i only have monopoly money.

      seller: we'll take it.

        I don't think I'd even have the monopoly money to buy one :P
        • 7 Years Ago
        With a weakening dollar monopoly money might actually be worth more some day.

      I'll still take the Vantage ragtop.

      The Scud was about where Ferrari lost me...designs and designations (the alpha-numeric names made more sense to me, anyway)

      This is more of the same weird proportions and over-done detailing...and it screams out that yer tool is small, too.
