Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M unveiled in Mugello

After all the rumors and photo renderings, Ferrari today unveiled the special series Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M at the World Finals in Mugello, celebrating its 16th F1 Constructor’s title. Only 499 examples of the Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M will be made so we expect it to be very expensive and very sold out in a couple of days.

Power comes from a 4.3L V8 engine making 510-hp with a maximum torque of 347 lb-ft. Weighing in at just 1,340 kg (2948 lbs) and a power to weight ratio of 2.6 kg (5.7 lbs) per horsepower, the Scuderia Spider 16M goes from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 196 mph. In fact, Ferrari says that the Scuderia Spider 16M is the fastest open-top road car to go around its Fiorano circuit. Fuel-economy is estimated at 15 mpg with CO2 emission levels of 360 g/km.

The new Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M will sport a special plaque on its rear grille commemorating Ferrari’s 16th Constructor’s World title. The interior will also carry a “limited series” plaque denoting which of the 499 units you own. Other features include a roll-bar with a carbon-fiber shell and a new generation audio system that can be combined with the removable 16GB Ferrari iPod Touch that can be docked in front of the dashboard.
