Ferrari has unveiled the latest addition to its range, the Ferrari Roma Spider, at an exclusive event at El Badi Palace in Marrakesh. The car is a contemporary take on the Italian lifestyle of the 1950s and 60s, a time of chic, pleasure-seeking elegance. While the Roma Spider carries over the Ferrari Roma's successful V8 2+ concept, what makes it unique is the adoption of a soft top, something that hasn’t been seen on a front-engined Ferrari for a whopping 54 years. To keep with modern standards, the soft top deploys in just 13.5 seconds and can even be opened while idling around at 60 km/h. The Ferrari Roma Spider retains the Ferrari Roma's excellent dynamic characteristics even with changes to the chassis to accommodate the open top, something that can often have a negative effect on the way the car carves up mountain passes. The Roma Spider is superbly versatile, and fast and can even take a pair of passengers in the rear, although they’re not going to be part of the NBA, that’s quite clear. Even with the changes that had to be carried out to allow the Roma to wear an opening soft top, the Ferrari designers and technicians still managed to keep to the stunning looks and dimensions of the hard top version. The soft-top drop-top is just amazing to look at, well in pics anyway.
