Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

It carries all the benefits of the fixed-roof Longtail, with an extra dose of sunshine for those lucky enough to plunk down the dough for one.

It also packs an electrically operated wind deflector that can be deployed to keep wind buffeting down or retracted to let those top-exit exhaust pipes sing.

Its 3.8-liter V8 produces the same 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque as the coupe.

Mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, that V8 will help the 600LT spider reach 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds, the same time it takes the coupe.

It'll hit 201 mph with the roof up, or 196 with the roof down.
