When rumours of a model as mouthwatering as an open-top version of the Ferrari 430 Scuderia surface, one thing you can guarantee is that the first renderings are not far round the corner. We can now tell you that this corner is now sitting firmly in our rear view mirrors after expert renderer and photoshopper Jon Sibal has put together this small of group of renderings for the world to peer over.

If the rumours are true and the spider variant of the 430 Scuderia does actually make it to production, we could well see it as early November 5th at the Ferrari Challenge at Mugello. A retractable hardtop roof will feature instead of a lighter convertible fabric which means the super light Scuderia Spider will see 70kg added to its dry weight. Ferrari will counter this performance dropping weight gain by incorporating its brand new 7-speed dual clutch transmission system which will debut in the brand new Ferrari California.

No more than 300 units are expected to be produced come production time.

i'll be just a little disappointed if they make that car, but i WOULD like to see the 7 speed dual clutch jobbie in it.

I love my car. Buy your own

This is a "spy" photo, but reading the article it seems it's not real.  :confused:

We only told you 2 short days a go that Ferrari are secretly working on an open-top variant of the super limited 430 Scuderia, and what happens? Up pops these few images of what appears to be a 100% production ready prototype. We have to admit there is a pretty slim chance that this is in fact real, this model is probably the work of an extensive tuning package. However you can't argue with the fact it still looks great and offers everyone the opportunity to get an unofficial sample of what the rumoured model may look like.

Should the model complete development and come out of Marenello, we can expect a very limited run of not more than 300 units. It will be fitted with a retractable hard-top roof adding an extra 70kg to its kerb weight. Ferrari will counter this performance dropping weight gain by incorporating its brand new 7-speed dual clutch transmission system which will debut in the brand new Ferrari California.

Rumours flying around the automotive circles state we will see the unveiling of the model at the Ferrari Challenge at Mugello on November 5th.

Load of crap that it would have a folding hardtop, have they looked in the back of a 430 spider, where do you think it would fit. And there is no way they will make the Scud heavier then a spider version would ever be. Highly unlikely to be made in the first place.
