You mean spider? The scuderia won't be shown to initial clientele for another 2 weeks.

Not Italia, not Spyder....Scuderia!!
They did say it hasn't been publicized yet, but there it was in the front window!

Sorry to break it to you but no dealer has a 458 scuderia even on static display.. There are only 2 cars in existence to begin with, both at the factory.

Seems that Tubber273 has seen one. I might ask how it's possible, but I wouldn't suspect that both the dealer and the sticker would tell a false story.

Or did they somehow affix the wrong sticker? At what point are those attached and by whom? I've always been curious about that. Surely they're on the car before they reach the showroom, no?

Probably a case of a typo on the sticker.

Would it then strike you as extremely odd that the dealer would admit that it's not for public consumption? I'd expect that from a used car lot, not a Ferrari dealership. Certainly if it's a Spyder they'd know better.

This does seem odd as the first Scuderia release has historically been a hard top. Is that not also the case with the 458?

Tubber, next time you're in there do us all a favour and snap a pic of the sticker and post. Thanks.

On second thought, please take some interior shots too as this is where the car will look most obviously different. Anyone can doubt the sticker, but a Scuderia interior hard to deny.

All is well and back to normal in the world.....in other words....I goofed up!
There were 2 fine specimens of Ferrari when I saw the 458.
One was the 2014 458 SPYDER - The other a beautiful 2009 430 Scuderia.
Total mistake on my part confusing the 2, so my apologies to everyone!!
Guess I was a bit too much the kid in a candy store!!

To top it all off, I never took pictures.....twice the fool.
Sorry to all!
