    Indeed!! The best of both worlds! Coupe or cafe strip cruiser, take your pick. :D

    And how simple is that roof mechanism! Some cylinders to lift, some cylinders to fold the roof back. Very simple and I am sure the Ferrari mechanics will think it's a god send. The folding roofs on the 355, 360 and 430 look VERY intricate and no wonder they cost big dollars to repair or replace. :)

    They have struck a winner (again). The lines of the coupe are still there and with a flick of the switch it's open top cruising to Chapel St.

    I wonder if coupe sales will slow as customers may start to prefer having the hard top option of the 458 Spider. I know I probably would go with it given the chance. :eek::eek:

    He seems to have trouble handling all that power.

    Is it *really* a "hairdresser's" car though?

    I mean same side (and good looking) profile, metal roof.. revels in going hard as stink..

    A *real* hairdresser's car (as used in the usual derogatory context) would be something like a mini rag top with cute colour and some extraneous chrome accessories..

    It would be less rigid and a whole lot heavier (in the wrong places I might add), which would have to dull the performance and handling. No doubt it is still way more car than 99.9% of buyers could deal with; but how much performance do you need for poncing about the cafe strips?

    Just not my sort of Ferrari.

    Yep, it's the poser's Ferrari, no question. Hairdressers do care about rigidity - just not this sort.
