Shortly after the introduction of the new Spyder, it was time for the coupe model to undergo the same technical transformation. The result was presented to the public at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2002. The Coupé adopted the elegant Giugiaro-designed body style from the 3200GT model it replaced, but inside almost everything was new. The signature boomerang taillights from the 3200GT were dropped to meet American homologation requirements. The new Coupé was powered by the new, normally aspirated V8 engine and offered two transaxle gearbox options: a traditional manual transmission and a Formula 1-style electro-hydraulic-operated gearbox with gearshift paddles on the steering wheel (Cambiocorsa).
