Ferrari’s fastest soft top arrives in NZ

Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M fq

The fastest soft top production Ferrari has arrived in NZ, but the Ferrari Scuderia 16M will never become a common sight with just 12 earmarked for Australia and three for New Zealand guaranteeing rarity value and with all 15 already sold its already too late to own Ferrari’s 315 kmh soft top supercar.

With the all-new Ferrari California, boasting the legendary car maker’s first folding hard top, arriving later this year, 2009 is Ferrari’s year of supercar open air motoring.

The Scuderia Spider 16M has been created with the goal of bringing together Ferrari performance with open top motoring. The result is the best-performing spider ever created by Ferrari, a car designed to evoke the emotions of the Barchetta models that were the protagonists of the great multi-stage races of the 1950s.

The car’s technological solutions make the most of the latest innovations in the 430 Scuderia, derived from Formula 1, to guarantee uncompromising handling on the road. This is reflected in the name, which is also connected to Formula 1: a celebration of the 16 World Constructors’ Titles Ferrari has won. The Scuderia Spider 16M a special, limited edition for only 499 customers worldwide, including 15 in Australia and New Zealand.
