The top's already come off, but we're just now getting to the subject of price. Don't get too excited, most of you can't afford it anyway. We're talking about the Ferrari 458 Spider, and it'll cost you at least $257,000 to put one in your climate-controlled garage. Should you have the means, you can place your order starting in January of 2012.

What do you get when you replace $257,000 from your bank account with the Ferrari 458 Spider? A 4.5-liter V8-powered exotic sports car with a roof that disappears so your ears can get closer to aural nirvana. Sure, the fancy folding top covers up the visuals, but we'd take the soundtrack over the artwork any day. Besides, the body lines on the 458 Spider will keep your eyes busy enough as it is.

      Call me crazy but that sounds like a bargain.

      After I fall asleep, I am going to place my order in my dreams with money that grows on trees. One of the best cars to date. Drop that top down going 80 mph near the closest coast line..... Need I say more!!

      Those turn signal repeaters are too cute, and the lighter blue they sometimes use might show off those rear hips better without making them look as bloated as they do from some angles in traditional red, but I'd have to say this one is beautiful enough to be a top end Ferrari. One of these days...

      You better add another 100k to the 257k MSRP.

      Usually I'm all about the hard top. Beautiful clean lines, much more taught and athletic, more purebred performance, what's not to like? But with the 458, the Spyder is my choice. I actually like the lines of the raised top MORE than those of the coupe. I'm not a fan of the spindly, pointy C-pillar with a body panel gap running through the middle of it and the bloopy, wavy shoulder line on the hardtop. The Spyder reminds me of a better proportioned Enzo greenhouse...and as if that weren't enough, it has flying buttresses! Remember F355s and prior Ferraris with flying buttresses?! Yeah, I definitely want my Ferrari with flying buttresses.

      Id like one 458 Spyder, one SLS AMG convertible, an Aventador, and a GT3. Please deposit in the 10 car garage of my multi million dollar mansion tropical beachfront with a private racetrack. What? I'm not a billionaire with exceptional driving talent? Does anyone have a dollar?

      It is a gourgeous piece of art that like my other stallions in the garage loves to be driven. For those who can't pay what ever the dealers are asking, you should stick with your toyotas.If you have the money spend it on this fantastic thoroughbred and you will be glad you did.

      This is why cars are so much better than so many other things. Pay ten times more than a regular watch, and all you get is a heavier watch. Pay ten times more than for a regular car, and you get this: transcendence.
