    How is the Ferrari 360 Spider different in the U.S. than in Italy? Obviously the driver's seat is reversed, but besides this feature what else? If you can answer this question or direct me to a website that can, I would truly appreciate it :)

    Why would the drivers seat be reversed? In Italy, like in the US, they drive on the right side of the road (ie driver is on the left of the car).

    As for more specific differences, I'm not sure.

    OOI I remember reading an article a few years back that the BMW M3 sold in the US had something like 230bhp when a Euro-spec M3 had 321 bhp. Quite a difference!

    It could be louder than US. I remember seeing a video from Motorvision (Germany) TV auto show and they drove it around monaco in the hills and tunnels, and it sounded pretty loud.

    Ferrari doesn't even share that much of that information with it's dealer network. Often differences are not found out about here until someone goes to fix the car. The parts book is often the only source of that information at least in a comprehensive way, and to devine that information from a parts book will mean going from page to page comparing part numbers but it will not describe the actual difference in the part. I will say we were told at the school at the factory when the 360 came out that the car had more commonality with respect to all market versions than any other car Ferrari had produced.
