Convertible F512M?

Does anyone know if Ferrari ever made a spider version of the F512M?

Take a look at this picture:

And like if that wasn't strange enough, does that F430 have sirens or am I crazy?

I don't think that link is showing me what you saw...

Ferrari did not make a spider version of the F512 M but a couple of cars were converted to spiders by third parties. Lorenz & Rankl did one in Germany and there is one in the States although I don't know offhand who cut that.

Jonathan, sometimes Imagevenue does have that problem (usually shows pictures of girls instead of what it really is), I had to post the link because the attachments are not working at the moment here in the forum...

The car does have American plates, it's a black F512M, probably converted to spider by some independent shop.

Thanks for the info.

Stile dude! Obviously one would be in a better place to judge the coachwork if the aforementioned beauty could be seen with the top down!

Those sure are serious sirens though!

t1fosI, the top is down in that picture, as you can see the passenger has its hands over the windshield

but it is a bad angle to admire the shapes of that car

I'll try to find more pictures and info, and post here

so far, besides that picture all I found out is that its S/N is probably 103779

Definitely no Ferrari on that picture, but no complaints though

That link does work. That is a beautiful 512, and yea that F430 does have sirens on it. I would hate to be in a high speed chase with that car

Muchos grazias!

I have seen pictures of a black F512M convertible before - looks amazing - but I cannot remember where!?!

IMHO the F512M is the best looking of that series - I just think it looks great, especially in Giallo (despite the small dick connotations ) and Nero (even better) - Onno posted a website in this thread - Wiggers Masterscars (like the name!) where they have a nice 3D visual of one they have for sale.

Now I am just gonna dive under the table and wait for the flak
