In celebration of its 16th F1 Constructor's Championship, Ferarri is offering a 499 limited edition iPods. The catch is that if you want a 16GB Ferarri iPod Touch, you have to buy the Ferarri it comes in, the limited edition Scuderia Spider 16M.
The Scuderia Spider 16M is the first car with at personalized 16GB iPod Touch. These limited edition Ferrari iPods are packed with special content such as photos, videos, and Ferrari engine sounds. Why one would want to listen to Ferrari engine sounds on an iPod while sitting in a Ferrari is beyond me. The iPod sits in the middle of the dashboard in a special dock where it can be easily reached and removed. Buyers who want a more standard stereo can opt for a Cascade radio with Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, and Ferrari will still throw in the 16GB iPod Touch. You'd think Ferrari would spring for the 32GB Touch, but perhaps that wouldn't fit with the 16 theme.
The Scuderia Spider 16M is a drop-top version of the Ferrari F430 Scuderia. Its 16M suffix is short for "16th Manufacturers," indicating the 16 Championships Ferrari has won.
The 16M is about 176 pounds lighter than a standard F430 Spider, weighing in at 2,954 pounds. Under the hood, you'll find a 510 horsepower V-8 engine that delivers a 0-62 time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 195 mph.
There are only three colors the Scuderia Spider 16M is available in: red, yellow, and black. All three colors feature Italian tri-color livery and gratuitous "16M" badging. Pricing is currently unavailable, but we assume that its well above the standard F430 Spider's MSRP of $221,810.
