Pininfarina-designed Ferrari 458 Italia imagined as a Spyder model. Ferrari unveiled details on the 458 Italia only today.
Right on the same day that Ferrari unveiled its new 458 Italia, no sooner do we have a rendered speculation as to what a 458 Italia Spyder would look like.
Yes, it doesn't take much to imagine the Pininfarina-designed 458 Italia as a topless model. It's a mid-rear engine Ferrari, after all, and the car's sloping rear roof-line does almost demand a Spyder derivative. But this image somehow makes the prospect all the more inevitable and, literally, renders it real.
The details on the new 458 Italia were covered in an earlier story, so there is no need to retread them here. Ferrari chose to name the 458 after its native land because, as they say in the press release, Italy is synonymous with "style, creative flair, passion and cutting-edge technology." True, perhaps, but that description applies more readily to Ferrari itself.
And will Ferrari now be naming all its cars after places? As it has with the recent California model and now unveiling the 458 Italia. No objection here, just wondering what other places would make good Ferrari names.
