Ferrari is either getting strategic or careless. The company usually keeps details about its upcoming models hush-hush until the vehicle is ready to make its debut, but lately Maranello seems to have more leaks than a pasta strainer. The latest is a screen-cap that seems to confirm the speculated 430 Scuderia Spider.

Based on the fixed-roof 430 Scuderia, the roadster version has been speculatively rendered and anticipated to debut at the company's upcoming mega-event at Mugello, the same place where they took the wraps off the FXX Evoluzione last year. The additional weight of an open-top version of the lightweight supercar is expected to be offset by the implementation of the company's new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The image above, which seems to confirm the model's imminence, comes from a video of the new Ferrari California that was just unveiled in Maranello and Los Angeles ahead of its debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. In the background of the video behind a Ferrari spokesman is a studio photograph of the rumored 430 Scuderia drop-top. We'll just have to wait until November 5 when the Ferrari Challenge heads to Mugello to know for sure.

        • 6 Years Ago
        Wasnt it designed to be so?

      I'd imagine it not being on purpose. Ferrari, the company who never needs to advertise because people are always watching them

      Sorry for the double comment. Computer went out on me, when I guess I thought it didn't accept the comment.

      I find this car to be an oxymoron. Honestly I think Ferrari is pretty stupid for making this car.

      Maybe Ferrari sees the market, I just don't see the appeal for a harsh-riding, track-focused, convertible.

      Maybe they know more about the poseur market than I do.

        With the top down, you'll be able to hear that glorious V8 much better.
