    It's a very tough choice. Either get them both of get the 550. Its much rarer if I'm not mistaken. There are 1000s of F40s but I think only a couple hundred Barchettas.

    Definitely F40. What did you end up doing to your 308 for increased hp?

    If you are going to drive it on the road, the Barchetta, but you probably already knew that.

    Still not a huge fan of the Barchetta...With the roof off it looks 'ok', but whens in on it looks like a tent..

    This is why it is a "barchetta" and not a "spider".

    The barchetta's top is for emergency use only, it is not meant to be an "everyday" car (unless you live in a perfect climate)

    Barchetta in black is the only color for me!
    I say F40 over that Barchetta!

    I find the hoops and lumps on the rear deck of the Barchetta ruin the clean lines of the 550.

    A choice between the F40 and a Barchetta- & you drive a race car?
    Seems the F40 is the ONLY way to go.

    The Barchetta is still there -- in the new showroom which is across the street. I was over there two weeks ago. It is absolutely gorgeous. I don't know what they want for it -- but shouldn't it be a lot less than an F40?
