On the internet page of car magazine they are advertising a 10 page spread on the new F1 and 12c convertible,you can see pictures on the 12c in the factory and you can clearly see that its similar to the 458 with two cowls behind the cabin.
As usual someone else can scan this as im bloody useless and belong in the dark ages.Still i can email something Ron dosent:D

Personally, I don't see how that white render has enough air intake in the design to support a juiced up M838T. Also, the style is a bit too "origami" which is something FS has said he wants to avoid. I would imagine his version to be smoother and more organic. Pleased, however, at the proposition of the front end sharing traits with the 12C - would be nice to see some consistent design elements across the whole range of models.

re: the Spyder, does the text of the article say that there will be a clear engine cover? Or will it be hidden now, like the 458.
