Ferrari LaFerrari Spider Confirmed

 

Ferrari Laferrari

The Ferrari LaFerrari is one of the top cars in the world right now and is set to get a little bit better in 2017. In an interview with Automobile, Sergio Marchionne CEO of Ferrari confirmed that the Spider was in development and that potential customers had already been approached. One of these customers is professional Chef and swearing enthusiast Gordon Ramsey, who on the debut episode of Top Gear confirmed he would be getting one, and was able to show off the key given to him by Ferrari.

Ferrari California Roof

Practically nothing is known about the Spider as Ferrari has only just confirmed it themselves, but Autocar magazine speculates that it will have a similar electric folding roof arrangement as both the California and 488 Spider. Another option for the Spider would be a removable targa top similar to Koenigseggs much of the other options for the LaFerrari will likely be the same including the 950BHP V12 hybrid engine.

Mclaren P1

This will also leave Ferrari rivals McLaren as the only company of the big three to not have a convertible version of their hyper car as the Porsche 918 Spyder had a removable roof from launch. While no convertible P1 has been announced it is likely we will see one emerge by the end of the year in concept form at least as McLaren will just be leaving money on the table for the other players to just pick up.
