Well-developed coupés, benefiting from high demand, are natural candidates for the production of a spyder variant. Since the early 1950s, evolutionary developments tested on the race track naturally evolved into road car construction. We've all said it at least once - racing improves the breed. The convertibles made available by Ferrari were no exception.
