EVO says:

Removing the roof from the glorious Ferrari F430 isn't sacrilege, it's inspired.

I'm impressed at how utterly stable and composed the F430 is and amazed at the calmness of the air in the cockpit. Conversation would be possible if the V8 behind us wasn't howling full bore.

Until now, I've taken a hard line on convertible supercars, arguing that decapitating a perfectly good coupe makes no sense. The F430 Spider blows most of my objections clean away in its carefully managed slipstream. Yes, it's 8kg heavier than the coupe, but this doesn't detract from the F430 experience. Its aerodynamics have been tuned to emulate those of the coupe as closely as possible, resulting in greater stabilising downforce at speed, hood up or hood down.

Performance is on par with the regular F430 too, with a 0-62mph time of 4.1sec and a top speed of 'over 193mph'. 

There's more to the F430 than a stunning engine though. Immediately impressive is the ride quality. The adjustable dampers have three settings and around town the Spider is supple and absorbent. There's barely a hint of steering wheel shudder or rear-view mirror shake, suggesting near-coupe levels of structural rigidity.
