Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Spider Caught

A publication in the Czech Republic is running this photo of an alleged Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Spider mule during testing.  The car had been rumored to exist for years, with some linking the rumors to the Ferrari California unveiling in Paris last year.

It is very clear that -if this is a mule- it is using a modified California body.  Rear fenders appear to be altered, and the boot lid looks to no longer fit.  There is now a single air outlet at the front, instead of the "gilled" look seen on the California.  The Czech outlet also suggests that, because of a different design for the interior, the temporary roof has a "hump." 

The Czech news outlet identifies the 2010 Paris Motor Show as the earliest possible introduction for the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Spider.

While the story is not totally convincing, especially because of the photo's unusual cropping, it does give some reason to speculate again.  If this is the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Spider, we want to know where it was caught on camera, and we definitely need to see more pics.  After all, with all the rumors swirling about a Ferrari hybrid concept coming to the LA Motor Show, perhaps this is just a test mule for a new platform.

What do you think of the rumors?  Let us know in the comments below.

Hi Guys I am a new member of this forum and presently doing some research, as part of an MA, on the pros and cons of Aston Martin, Lamborghini and Ferrari producing 'greener' alternative fuelled cars in the future. I'm in the process of putting together a self completion tick box questionnaire and wondered if anyone on the forum would like to take part? The questionnaire will essentially be based around an owners perspective of the types of constraints/difficulties you anticipate will be encountered with alternative fuel design engineering ie will compromises need to be made with performance, aesthetics etc? Can the uniqueness be retained? I really appreciate your help if you can assist me with this project as I need to complete this before Sept this year. Many thanks Callahan

It is very obvious that it is an old picture of a California undergoing testing. The picture shows a gas door on the right side. The 599 gas door is on the left drivers side and the California’s gas door is on the right passengers side!

You've not noticed this is right hand drive, so possibly a reversed image...?

California Hunchback edition. I hope the real 599 GTB-F doesn't have such an ugly roof.
