It's crazy, I completely acknowledge the idea that this is a superior car to the coupe in almost every sense besides the trivial performance losses, but if I was given a choice I'd still take the fixed-roof. The 458 spyder's looks just don't sit right with me like the 430/Scud spyder's did.

Didn't care for the lady reviewer, seems like she's trying too hard to be a female Clarkson

You've seen Clarkson moved to tears by a car?

I like the 458 - though I hate it in red - but my lottery winnings would go for a coupe as well. Like Porsche, I think Ferrari's always done their best work with the entry-level models.

You must have never seen fifth gear before? Otherwise you would know who Vicki is.
