    Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Due to arrive somewhere in 2009, looks a little like the alfa spider




    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Not bad at all... I quite like it actually!

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    I've never been a fan of the coupé's oddly-shaped C-pillar. With the spider, now we're talking!

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Why do people insist on calling it a california spider? Seems quite arbitrary that they chose this particular name from Ferrari's history when there has been no official announcement.

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Sexy!

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    BEAUTIFUL

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    too bad it'll never live up to the beauty of the original 250 California GT SWB...

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Much better than expected

    Hope this is the actual version..

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    I like it.

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Looking good

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Very nice!

    Where can I put down my money?

    more like "Where can I get the money from?" for me

    Although those pictures look kind of official, they are some Photoshop job by someone who doesn't know that Ferrari will never brand a car "Spyder" -- the Y is for Maserati

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Guys I still don't like this italian corvette!!!

    This is not correct. All Ferrari front-engined convertibles in 60-70 were named SpYder.

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spyder

    hey you are right supraman

    1972 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder
    1963 Ferrari 250GT SWB Spyder California
    1960 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder
    1953 Ferrari 340 MM Touring Spyder
    etc.

    alot of them had the name california too
    Funny though cause the 550 and 575 had barchetta and superamerica...

    What proof is there apart from Google search results or Wikipedia?
    AFAIK Ferrari rarely officially used the term "spider" in the past anyway. Browsing thru the archives on Ferrari's owner's site, I couldn't really find anything with an Y.

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spyder

    Gorgeous, but where is the 2+2 part?

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Nice Car

    Not sure his wife would agree ...

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    Unfortunately, the car looks like a C6 Corvette from the door forward. Especially the hood.

    You both need to see the car in the flesh. One cannot judge from pictures. The car does not resemble a Corvette in the slightest.

    Re: Ferrari 599 California Spider

    lol, I never want to hear the argument anymore that 911's look like squished beetles...
