Take a first look at the Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M, a roadster version of the 430 Scuderia.

The car has been built to celebrate Ferrari's 16th Formula One constructors' crown, which it won this year with drivers Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen. The company says it is quicker around its Fiorano test circuit than any other open-topped Ferrari road car.

The Spider is powered by the same 503bhp V8 engine that powers the 430 Scuderia, but it is 80kg lighter, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 375bhp-per-tonne. It is expected to travel from 0-62mph in 3.7secs, and reach a top speed of 196mph.

A total of 499 Spiders will be built, with an estimated price tag of around 182,000.
