    Has anybody specced a Pista Spider with the stripe from the coupe? I'm interested in seeing pics or renderings of how that looks, especially on the rear deck. Thanks in advance.

    I have seen a few renders but unfortunately I don't have copies of the files. In some ways I think they look better and in my geo many are going for them over the spider stripe. Personally I felt part of the uniqueness of the spider is the stripe... and I quite like it. So I decided to spec the spider stripe.

    I’ve been wondering this same thing. Love to see some renderings or actual specs.

    I found this. But it's an unusual stripe.

    I suppose it looks like you'd expect it to - about right in the front but thin in the rear.

    Love and writing the cheque are two different things. Rosso Maranello is number one!

    Man I dont know, I think that looks hot! I would do the tri colore red white and green stripes on the seats as well.

    To me, that looks absolutely amazing. Like a life sized matchbox car. If i could afford a pista, I would 1000% get that stripe on this exact spec. Quintessential Ferrari

    So I wound up speccing my spider with the stripe from the coupe. I used a (badly) photoshopped version of Ian's car to show the stripe to the factory since his is the only other spider I have seen with the coupe stripe (I believe his is Grigio Coburn while mine will be Nero and Glossy Sanusilver). Notwithstanding these pics, for whatever unknown reason, Ferrari would not paint the wing/tail with the stripe. They just said "not possible".

    Also going with a wider stripe on the side as on this car in Glossy Sanusilver. The wheel caps will be Glossy Sanusilver and chrome.

    The benefit of going last is you can see everyone else's good ideas. LOL
