Hi,

I'm torn between a 2005 red Spyder (assembled 10/2004) and a 2006 black GranSport Spyder.

Besides the obvious $20K difference in price and cosmetics, can someone help me understand the differences between the two in terms of handling, features, reliability, performance...

Thanks

Well, there is plenty of info on the internet about the two cars.

Essentially the GS has 10hp more, bigger wheels (19" vs 18"), faster shifts on the F1 transmission, lower ride and aero bodykit. Last but not least, the GS is fitted with a tubi exhaust that makes a great sound and probably holds up its value slightly better.

Alternative is to get the Spyder and do some aftermarket mods (via Formula Dynamics for instance) which will cost a lot less than the price difference between the two cars.

Happy hunting :)

one very obvious note is the interior. which one do u like better?

i like the sport button and the 'active' exhaust.. :)

i am biased towards the GS spyder, but there is nothing wrong with an 05 spyder. but $20k is too much of a difference between the two.

The longer warranty coverage on the newer car could be worth something to you as well.
