Does 16M stand for "16 Million Dollars"?

Normally when manufacturers chop off the roofs of their sports cars, I get annoyed. Honestly I'm not worrying here. It'll receive the new lightning-fast DCT box like the one in the California, which should make up for some of the performance losses. It's going to be a serious poseur car, but whatever. It looks good. I'd like to see it in dark silver with a red interior.

It looks great, but the Scuderia should not be made into a convertible.
The ideals behind the Scuderia are to take out all the fluff and weight, and add power and control, and it works great in the standard Scuderia. Wind buffeting is an issue on the regular Scuderia with the windows down at speed, I can't imagine how bad it would be with no top at all.

It looks great BUT it defeats the bare bone DNA of the Scuderia (which is a fabulous car to drive)

They should have told customers who want this to get a regular 430 Spyder. They don't need the weight savings or extra power, if you are cruising around LA at 40 MPH.

That's exactly how I should feel, but for some reason this doesn't annoy me. Hmm...

That is what I call perfecting the lines of Ferrari! How beautiful!

To me, owning a Ferrari is a few different things. While I certainly would be punishing it around a racetrack at times, It'd also spend a lot of time looking pretty in my garage. As for that 2nd half, I think this one does it better than any other could.

But then you won't satisfy the people who buy just the name

DCT gearbox? Nope, it has F1 superfast 2. Pretty much shifts F1 fast(no lie) but the DCT is only on the California so far.

Edit: I am mistaken, it will have the superb DCT gearbox!

... that's pretty much what ran through my head when I read the title and saw the pics. I do like how they went back to the challenge stradale stripes though.
