 Pros At around $119,000, the 2011 Alfa Romeo 8C Spider Convertible is priced very fairly for the amount of luxury features it includes.

 Pros Its Supercharger package (transferred from the GranTurismo) offers outstanding power, and guarantees the 8C Spider's heightened habitation in the luxury market.

 Pros A beautiful, fully-customizable and sleek interior make the 2011 Alfa Romeo 8C Spider Convertible one of the most aesthetically-pleasing automobiles we've ever seen.

 Pros Safety, comfort, and technology features abound in the sporty luxury Spider. We're nothing less than shocked by the amount of goodies it offers us for our money.

 Pros The 2011 Alfa Romeo 8C Spider Coupe Convertible is both fast and sophisticated. It combines sportiness and luxury in a way we didn't believe to be possible.

 Pros Lucky Alfa Romeo 8C Spider owners will have a vehicle that only a few other people possess, but millions of people covet. It's both unique and beautiful: a scarce masterpiece.

 Pros The Spider rides better than its Coupe brother, and not just because of body flex. Stiffer springs showcase the C8 Spider Convertible's superb ride and handling balance, but at the same time, the driver feels a softer, more comfortable, yet more wieldy ride than in the coupe. The balance is also quite a bit better on this vehicle.

 Cons With only 500 of the 2011 Alfa Romeo 8C Spider Convertibles being sold, it'll be hard to get your hands on this gorgeous automobile, if you are able to at all.

 Cons Storage/luggage space is seriously lacking. There's only enough room for about one regular-sized suitcase in the boot- and little else. There's also only about an inch of space between the seat backs and the firewall. Drivers must hold out hope that their passenger's lap can also act as storages.

 Cons The sporty 8C Spider Convertible's brakes lack the finesse of Alfa Romeo's steel alternative, but they're still rather powerful.
