In November 2008 at the World Finals at Mugello, Italy, Ferrari introduced a new dual-purpose track car to commemorate its recently captured world-record 16th Formula 1 Constructor’s Championship. The appropriately named 16M Scuderia Spider was an open-top version of the 430 Scuderia customer competition car, featuring the same 503-horsepower V-8. Due to the convertible configuration, the chassis required structural reinforcement, and Maranello’s engineers offset the added weight with increased use of carbon fiber throughout the car (including specially lightened bumpers and a carbon fiber coated rollbar).

Generally finished in nero, the 16M was also available with a tri-color livery under the Carrozzeria Scaglietti Personalization Program. The model was shod with unique five-spoke forged wheels that complemented larger front brakes and calipers derived from the 430 Scuderia. Reportedly built in a sparing batch of just 499 examples, the 16M Scuderia is notable not only as a celebration of the brand’s 16 F1 Constructor’s Championships, but also as one of very few open models specifically built for customer track use.

Claiming low mileage and fastidious care, this minimally used 16M was finished in rosso corsa with a tri-colored Italian racing stripe down the hood, and optioned with red-painted brake calipers and special stitching. Standard equipment included carbon ceramic disc brakes, power windows, a free-flow exhaust, and Pirelli P Zero tires, as noted by the original window sticker.

Chassis 166916 was delivered new in May 2009 to its first owner, The Collection at Coral Gables, Florida. Serviced regularly within The Collection’s facilities, the ideally maintained 16M was sold in August 2014 to Seth Weissman of Pacifica, California, and he entrusted Ferrari of Silicon Valley to completely detail the car and apply a skid plate on the front bumper. In early 2016 the spider was acquired by the consignor and he submitted the car to the esteemed marque dealer Continental AutoSports for an annual service.

Currently displaying just 2,525 miles on the odometer, this beautifully presented 16M is documented with the window sticker and service invoices. The rare track-purpose spider offers enthusiasts of modern Ferraris a genuine collectible that can be exhibited at FCA events, or a speed machine that can be viscerally experienced for its blistering 196 mph performance.


Please note that due to California emissions, this vehicle must be sold to a dealer or out-of-state resident.
