Rumors of a Spider version for the Ferrari 599 date back to a couple of years ago, but no real data had been conjured up and the story just seemed to lack the necessary substance to keep it going. That is, until recently, when the 599 roadster was spotted testing in Maranello. Now, it seems that Ferrari will be debuting the Ferrari 599 Spider at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August and MotorAuthority has deemed it necessary to provide a computer generated rendering of the wind blowing convertible. Can you blame them? They are probably as excited as we are.
The Ferrari 599 Spider will be offered in limited numbers as was the 575 Superamerica launched in 2005. It will feature a folding-metal roof and will most likely carry a V12 engine developing an extra 25 HP in order to counteract its extra weight. The result of this engine will be a total of 670 HP at 8250 rpm with a maximum torque of 620 Nm at 6500 rpm as performed in the 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO.
