This won't effect anything, as I can't afford the lugnuts, but that's awkward.

Definitely. I rarely say this but the spider/vert looks perfect!

Lawd, that bodywork around the engine compartment is sickening.

Wow, could they have copied the top design from the 458 any more? Having those two bumps so high above the occupant's head looks terrible with the top down.

One thing I want to comment on is the PAINT. It looks AMAZING, what an awesome color.

Integrated roll hoops have been around for quite a while. CGT, 16M, 458... McLaren. it's why F1 cars have the inlets so high, it has to be higher than the occupant's head.

Looks more like a targa top than a spider! Looks bloody good whatever it is.

Too much of a sports car to be a vert.
