Ferrari recently showcased a 458 Speciale Spider to a select group of customers at Pebble Beach, and rumour has it that Ferrari will only build 458 examples of the Speciale Spider. As its name suggests, the Speciale Spider is based on the 458 Speciale but with its roof lobed off, similar to what Ferrari did to create the 430 Scuderia Spider 16M.

There has been no official confirmation from Maranello as of yet, but we will post updates if and when they are announced. The car is expected to make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show in October.

Audi has made significant gains in reducing the impact on the environment of its latest high-tech sports car. Compared with its predecessor, the new Audi TT scores with an increase in power output of up to 14% and a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions of 11%. As Audi states in its new life cycle assessment of the third-generation TT, this means that each car in the series saves around 5.5 tonnes of greenhouse gases over its entire life cycle. This includes not just carbon dioxide, but other substances such as methane, nitrous oxide and halogenated organic emissions.

A lot of technologies have contributed towards the positive life cycle assessment of the Audi TT, including lightweight construction.  Due to an intelligent combination of materials, Audi engineers have, for the second time in a row, succeeded in reducing the car's unladen weight.  The first model change in 2006 saw weight savings of up to 90kgs achieved.  With the front wheel driven 2.0 TFSI engine variant of the new TT now weighing in at just 1,230Kgs, this means that the car is around 50kgns lighter than its predecessor.
