Ferrari 360 Spider--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran

Ferrari has somehow taken all the sensory delights from the Modena and
transplanted them, undiluted, into the Spider, and then capped the whole
deal with a convertible top that proves irreproachable in appearance and
It isn't just that the one-touch automatic operation deploys and unfurls
the top in a spectacular dance of levers, covers, and flaps. It's also that
the car looks great with the top up, and it drives with the solidity and
isolation of a coupe.
Then, when you consign the top to its lair beneath the gleaming hard
tonneau covers -- completely concealing its presence under a long rear deck
-- the loss of a roof profile and its critical C-pillar volume is balanced
by such visual details as roll hoops, fins, and a glass engine cover.
Equally important, the aerodynamic characteristics of a top-down Spider are
Whether it's due to the long, raked windshield or the little mesh wind
blockers you see in the mirror -- or a combination of both -- the Spider
provides a remarkably draft- and buffet-free environment.
Climb from the BMW Z8 on a chilly day on a fast autostrada, and the Spider
feels like a warm and secluded refuge from the elements. Said C/D's
normally skeptical editor-in-chief: "The 360's top-down cockpit comfort is
unbelievable. At 125 mph, a sheet of paper sitting on the passenger seat
doesn't even flutter."
Plus, you can carry on a conversation without yelling yourself hoarse at
speeds that would have you on a Cops episode in the U.S. Better yet, you
can dive into one of the many tunnels that enclose Italy's coastal
autostradas, flick the left-side paddle for a two-gear downshift, and let
'er rip to the redline. This produces a wail like that of an F1 car from
the '70s and even has the guys in other cars laughing like schoolboys.
Peter Robinson wrote: "The Ferrari should get 11 out of 10 in the fun
category." He's right. Everything in the Spider has been crafted to provide
maximum fun. The engine rasps, snarls, and howls its way to the 8500-rpm
redline, ticking past 100 mph in 11.7 seconds on the way to its
redline-limited top speed of 175 mph. The steering wheel thrills with
messages from the front wheels and transmits its responses to your hands in
genetic code. And the F1 transmission -- although requiring some practice
to achieve optimal smoothness -- allows you to play boy racer without the
need for any tricky pedal boogie.
Being mid-engined, the Spider turns in with an immediacy that is notably
different from the two front-engined cars. Unlike the Z8, which kind of
swings the nose around the driver, the Ferrari rotates car and driver in
one piece. With excellent road feel, strong brakes, and its mass
centralized between the axles, the 360 will corner very hard indeed,
offering linear response at the helm until the meaty Pirellis begin to push
