    Revisionist history... Flying Shingle has a more positive connotation. In the 70’s it was the Flexible Flyer.....

    I trust you, at the end of the day nicknames are not the most important thing.

    Someone else asked about transforming the body from Berlinetta to Spyder, Thomas Schnitzler who is in charge of 0872 and with whom I spoke a few days after Retromobile told me it takes very little time, he said the Berlinetta body was already completely off. The car will be run as a Spyder for now -when life returns to normal- as the engine gets better air supply in that body configuration.

    A couple of quick questions:

    David Franklin drove (brilliantly) up the hill at Goodwood in both a Berlinetta and a Spider. Is that 0872 wearing different bodywork?

    Did 0868 become the 512 Speciale?

    There are four complete sets of Spider and Berlinetta bodywork for 0872.
    See also post #80.
    Franklin drove it in both configurations.
    Here he is 15 July 2007 in 0872 at Betzholz, Switzerland.
