Have we just seen a glimpse of the Ferrari Roma Spider?

The Italian supercar maker has just posted a teaser video which could well be a hint that the Ferrari Roma Spider is coming.

We know that Ferrari is going to show us something new on March 16.

Exactly what that will be, who knows, but the Italian supercar maker just gave us a big clue.

And we think Ferrari possibly just gave us a glimpse of the Ferrari Roma Spider.

A super-short video has appeared on its Instagram account showing a steering wheel.

Admittingly, it’s not the easiest to make out in the darkness, but as the camera moves, light slowly illuminates some of its details.

We’re given a glimpse of carbon shift paddles which sit behind the leather-wrapped steering wheel which also features carbon sections top and bottom.

We even think we can spot a shift-light section built into the top of the rim.

If you look closely, there appears to be something in the roof.

We can’t quite make out what it is, but we have a sneaky suspicion it might be a hidden clue as to what the supercar is.

The video’s soundtrack could be the biggest clue yet.

There’s no engine noise, instead we can hear the sound of chirping crickets and wind.

Perhaps engine noise would be too much of a giveaway, as presumably it’ll be powered by the same twin-turbo V8 as the hardtop Roma.

That unit produces 612hp and 561 lb-ft of torque and those numbers aren’t likely to change for the Ferrari Roma Spider.

Being a convertible, the Ferrari Roma Spider is likely to feature a strengthened aluminum body structure.

That, along with the mechanism for the hood, will add several hundred pounds to the supercar’s kerb weight.

This means its zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) time is likely to be slower than the coupe’s 3.4 seconds, unless Ferrari decides to add extra muscle.
