    Can't wait to see it in the flesh, I have a feeling the pictures aren't doing it the justice it deserves.

    From the owners' site:

    Ferrari is proud to present its clients with another World Premiére - the new F430 Spider, details of which you can find inside the site.

    483 bhp and a top speed of over 192 mph (310 km/h) are just a couple of figures that underline the significance of this new car that will be officially presented to the press and public at Geneva from the 3rd to the 13th of March. If you would like to visit Ferrari's stand at the show to see the car personally, please fill in the on-line form.

    As for the berlinetta, the F430 Spider version features advanced aerodynamics developed in collaboration with the F1 team, while the shape of the car recalls Ferrari's 1961 racing models - in particular the 156 F1 winner of that year's title driven by Phil Hill. More hints at the car's F1 pedigree can be seen in the adoption of the electronic differential (E-Diff), the starter button and the steering wheel-mounted commutator switch, the manettino, that governs the car's set-up.

    The F430 Spider boasts a compact, fully automatic electric hood that takes up relatively little space, despite the uncompromising central-rear engine layout.
