The Ferrari Rossa

The Ferrari Rossa was born to celebrate the Pininfarina 70 years of activity,
 "rossa", "Concept Car of the Year" 2000, is a two-seater Spider with Ferrari 
mechanical components, a perfect foundation on which to link with an
 imaginary thread the past to the future, while interpreting and evolving
 several of the more powerful themes of the long collaboration 
between Ferrari and Pininfarina.

The two-seater spider, designed by Ken Okuyama, is build on the platform of 

a Ferrari 550 Maranello. It is not only a study in design but a tribute to the
 competition spiders of the 1950’s. 
It is a glimps into the future of what a front-engined two-seater open sports car
 might look like in the future. Many of the modern Ferrari’s use various styling
 cues courtesy of the Rossa such as the Enzo and F430 having 
similar rear lights.

The Rossa it is powered by a 5.5 liter V12 from the Ferrari 550 Maranello. 

It delivers 485 hp at 7000 rpm and 419 lbs-ft at 4500 rpm.
 It has a top speed of 186,4 mph.
