Hey guys, new owner here. First foray into the Italian car world. Anyway picked up a 2016 4c spider last night. Has about 42k miles on it. So far I’m liking it. On the drive home though I noticed a weird rattle like noise under hard acceleration. Only from like 5k rpm and on. And only really noticeable in 3rd and sometimes 2nd gear. Like if I put the car in third or second and let rpm’s settle to around 4k ish rpms, if I go wide open throttle, when it gets to like 5k the rattle starts then goes away when I let off the gas or shift. Not sure if it’s a loose bolt, or pinging, or the transmission? Any ideas. I took a short video of the noise. You can hear the rattle shortly after I start accelerating in the beginning of the clip and also rightbefore the end of the clip.
