    575 Spider Pic

    Nice looking

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    you see.. thats exactly the roof we talked 'bout.

    We will see that again on the 430 spider!

    L@rs

    ... I like it!

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    Maybe I am some kind of blind but I can't see how the roof mechanism works, it was a hardtop right?

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    From what I can see I believe the whole top pivotes 180 degrees along the axis (doesn't fold).

    The roof as a whole turns outward and the break lights appear on top when opens up and they hid inside of cabin when closes.

    I hope I made myself understood.

    That's just my perception someone else may be able to elaberate more.

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    wierd,... i cant wait until they make a video of it folding

    Very accurate description of how top works, Ron. However, concept car shown at PB had different appearance, esp. the point of rotation was hidden inside a structure appearing more like the vertical "wings" seen on a 360Spider. This may be a photoshopped pic...

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    Are you talking about this picture?

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    No, the pic of the yellow 575 in your original post doesn't look like the concept car shown at PB. The circular axis of rotation structure was hidden inside the vertical "wings" that the concept car had.....best way to think of concept car is as 575 coupe with no rear windows (and no rear shelf) and instead with vertical 360Spider-like wings.....hope that description makes sense...

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    I'd imagine it almost look like a Targa?

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    @ VKSF - Its interesting about the buttress design you mentioned. So the profile of the Maranello's roof is still there, only without any side windows? A bit like a GTS - but then with the 575's flat boot panel instead of a rear engine lid?

    Good way to think about design F seems to know design may be controversial for some buyers (esp the Viper-like curvature of rear window when top closed)....but my view of concept was that design is cool...

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    RC! Why do you always copy stuff from Italiaspeed.com?

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    What are those big round silver things?

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    Those silver 'things' illustrate housings for the electro motors which flip the roof along 1 simple axis. It's a brilliant design from Leonardo Fioravanti, although initially he patented it for manual use - without electro engines.

    Don't forget that Fioravanti designed the 365 GTB/4, 246 Dino and 308 during his time at Pininfarina!

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    You mean Ron, right.
    jomana123456, there is a concept called internet and sharing information; FYI I got the pics from a different site, however Italiaspeed.com is very nice thanks for pointing it out .

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    Ron is right,
    I already spend far too much time on the net only with Rennteam, so imagine if I had to browse through other car sites as well!!!
    Thank god I have poeple with nothing else to do like Ron to do that for me
    Seriously though, yes that pic probably comes from another site, so what? big deal!
    BTW, I did check italiaspeed, and yes, it is a very good site.
    Ron, go to sleep!

    Re: 575 Spider Pic

    Horrible.

    How bad looking Ferrari cabriolets have become. Barchetta is a joke, Spider a tasteless compromise.

    Since making a car handsome or awfull cost the same, I don not understand all that crap designs.

    Bring back a Spider California, it would be so easy given the Maranello.
