An authenticity check is very helpful before falling in love with the first 550 Spyder you find out in the real world!
And once you find that original, you have to drink in its details throughout. Smoother than a porcelain lion-claw bathtub, with aircraft rivets throughout its cabin and even lightweight drilled mechanicals. Check out that handbrake! The holes reduced its total weight.
The carved-out rear decklid is perhaps just as striking as the vehicle’s tiny size. Between the semi-sharp rear fender-tops, the rear metal sinks deep and low to the ground. Stunning.
