It’s not like the days of the 675LT when there was going to be no spider variant.

What I wonder about is why bother with the coupe? Unless you prefer it’s more pure lines without the shut lines of course because it’s not like it suffers rigidity issues. smile

Rigidity issues aside, you're still going to have a car with a 50KG weight penalty where its USP is its 100KG weight saving. I guess its WEIGHing up the pros and cons but I see an argument for both.

You make a good point! I’d completely forgotten about the weight smile

prefer the lines, but also feel much safer in a coupe

That I do believe is Napier green and is the colour mine is going to be, although when I specced it I had no idea that might be the launch colour, I just loved it.

Roll on April...

If anyone is buying any LT for track or outright performance, they would always buy the coupe of course.

However, I can see one HUGE advantage of the 600LT as a Spider…. just imagine those flames and exhaust noise behind your head....AWESOME!

And so ends the production cycle of the 600LT coupe :_(

Great cars. So raw and direct. Amazing to drive.

I don’t think that’s the case. I think the two are being produced concurrently
