    With the top down;

    360 Spider or a 550 Barchetta?

    That is a hard choice to make.

    Personally I am now interested in 12 cylinder so I will take 550 Barchetta.

    360 Spider - In my opinion it looks good from every angle.

    I really like the 550 Barchetta but the windshield frame seems a little odd looking in any color other than black:

    stramman 550 spider, doesnt have dumb roll hoops. 360 is pretty nice too actually, not a big barchetta fan, and besides, good luck with the terrible looking top, and not driving over 70!

    Neither, the 'Mc'Donalds Arch' roll bars destroy the looks of both cars. IMHO

    Guess that's why my F-cars have always been Berlinettas; ok, I owned a couple of GTs once, but the lines just aren't as nice as GTBs!

    360 definetly.
    550 looks common.
    360 looks exotic. IMO

    360 by far - the 550 barchetta looks good but has always looked a little awkward to me. The 360 is great as a coupe and great as a convert. The 550 is far better in coupe form - it just works.

    You should have organized a poll ...
    IMO, as far as looks and looks alone go, it's almost a tie. I am not a huge fan of 360s, and the spider does not compensate. The 550 Barchetta has a heavy-looking profile at the rear.
    To own, I'd be enticed to believe that a 360 spider is a better real world car, the Barchetta's top seems to be a joke for countries were a drop of rain (or a good storm) is not an extraordinary event. Who would go touring in a Barchetta for a day, or a week-end ?
    I guess that's why most have so few miles.

    When you create a new thread, you have at the bottom a 'Post a poll' option, just follow the instructions !
