Yes, you could go for the Spider incarnation of the F355 if you simply wanted to drive around in an open-top Ferrari of the sort. But what if you wanted to be truly special?

The rendering sitting before us comes to answer that question and does so in an unapologetic fashion. That's because this pixel work features an F355 that looks like it went under the trailer of an 18-wheeler and then landed in the hands of a builder who decided to turn a problem into a solution.

You see, the upper section of the Italian exotic has been removed. So let's take a bit of time to go through the custom elements that have replaced it.

It all started with a chopped windshield, one that seems to lack a frame... because #rendering. The protection bars sitting behind the seats are matched by a similar element found in the tail of the Maranello machine, with this protection that gorgeous V12 in the event of a rollover.

And while we're talking about the naturally aspirated heart of the Prancing Horse, this now looks like a jewel, not least thanks to accessories such as independent throttle bodies and an exhaust setup that seems to be the work of a sculptor.

Heck, we haven't even gone over the widebody approach of the machine, with the newfound fenders appearing to blend in quite smoothly.

The list of changes also involves the rear fascia, which sees a big carbon panel acting as an attention magnet. Oh, and let's not forget the generously-sized diffuser sitting below it.

Now, you might wonder why Yasid Oozeear, the digital artist responsible for this eye candy, labels the work as "another look at my slightly tampered-with F355" in the Instagram post below. Well, that's because the pixel master initially introduced the Ferrari in "breadvan" form.
