Click above for a high-res gallery of the Ferrari 16M Scuderia Spider

The focus under the Prancing Horse this year at the Geneva Motor Show was clearly on the flagship 599, with its new HGTE package and 599XX track car, but Maranello also brought out the new Scuderia Spider 16M. The limited edition roadster was originally unveiled back in November at the Mugello race track in northern Italy to celebrate Ferrari's 16th Formula One constructors' title that was earned last year, but this was the first look we've had of it up close. Essentially a cross between the 430 Scuderia and the F430 Spider, the 16M is, according to Ferrari, the fastest convertible ever offered by the brand. With less than 500 examples being made, this may be the closest you ever get to seeing one, so check it out in the gallery below.

      Looks like Autoblog is a little behind, the Scuderia Spider, surprisingly, made an appearance at the Toronto International Autoshow last month.

      I love the f430, i've always had, but they are stretching it too much, the same with the murcielago, i mean coooomeee onn... replacement? and no, watever u tell me, the California is not a replacement for the f430,
        • 5 Years Ago
        Actually I think they did say that the California was the replacement
        for the drop-top and the F450 will only come in a coupe

        Here's the reference, you guys are right, it was just
        speculation, but SOMEONE has said it before:

        "However, don't expect a Spider version to follow: that mantle's been
        taken up by the front-engine California. "
        • 5 Years Ago
        nobody EVER said the California would be replacing the F430....
        seriously, a front engined 1800 kg convertible should have replaced a midengined coupe? Stop smoking unhealthy stuff.

        No F450 Spider? That would be giving away a bunch of customers who really want to be SEEN in a Ferrari away to Lamborghini. That would not be wise for them.

        I'm not sure what you mean by stretching it too far/much. It still looks quite restrained for a supercar, especially compared to Murcielagos.

        It takes so much development and testing to create one of these cars. The 360 was around for 6 years. They will come out with a few more models before we get a new version.
