    Looks like there is less camo on this one. The scoop and rear both look a lot more rounded.

      But still pretty obvious that scoop is fake.

          Thanks for the pics! This is definitely a spider as we can see the black cladding drooping between the buttresses. But there are some details I haven't noticed before, like the small ridges right at the back of the rear deck lid. Those continue forward but do not seem to line up with the trailing edges of the buttresses. Instead they seem to continue under the black cover to what might be a raised engine cover / window loosely obscured by the fabric.

          Or maybe it's more camo padding under there to throw us off the scent?

            not spider, front above engine is hacked to get access to the engine compartment back section near spoiler is a back trunk compartment, common mid engine super car trick.

              The side scoop definitely has a different shape compared to the other mules, can’t wait for 7/18.

                You may be on to something there Klinn. Possibly raising to allow the top to retract?
                Would also be a good place for a cold air intake for the engine.

                  Back in September we saw convertibles and coupes running around the 'Ring. The convertible had pulled back the rear cover to reveal some raised engine cover venting by the look of it.

                    Thanks for the screen captures, I hadn't noticed that detail in the videos.

                      I feel sure we are looking at an engine cover with vents. It's also possible that it's slightly recessed between the 2 ribs (clearest in the middle image) and from the rear we are seeing cladding turned down into the "valley".

                        Don’t forget that the rear deck cover will be raised by the air pressure differences at speed. Standing still, it drops down to the body. At speed it will rise
