you know... I don't know.

Takes the Scaglietti and makes it less offensive. But... not my thing. A few Daytona cues from the back...

Doesn't end my disappointment streak with modern Ferraris (since the Enzo)

I think it's hard with these type of front engined coupes for Ferrari, Maserati and others to design something unique that couldn't have been pressed out by any of the major manufacturers. If you didn't know, swapping the badge for a GM/Ford/Peugeot/Toyota etc would be plausible. As for what's underneath the body yes they are special. But so is what's under an M5, Nissan GTR, Mitsu evo and a lot of others without that exalted pedigree.

Ferrari and the others have an easier wow factor with their rear engined supercars. Probably because the other manufacturers don't produce anything similar.

I agree.. Ferrari should stick to Rear engines and sleek designs....

I think both the 612 Scageletti and this 599 thing (nice as they are) are creeping suspicously towards the Aston Martin look. Especially at the front end.

I think that's an insult to Nissan, Peugeot etc etc eg The Supra looks good... The NSX looks striking (admitedly mid-engined but far eastern of origin) Personally the Pininfarina 406 looks better than this...

To me, this is a vile piece of poo, like the scag which has offended my eyes on more than one occasion! :o

Flaming bag of POO!!!!

Hahaha - Hugely ironic! Reviews of the Hyundai Coupe when it first came out, said it looked like a Ferrari... NOw Fez have made a new car that looks like the Hyundai!

Lmao

At least the 360(etc) LOOKED like a supercar. The 456 was what it was - it was for the likes of my ex-gf's Dad, who knew he'd look like a nob in a 355 or 360, yet had the money and willing, at last to buy himself a really nice (new!) car. As most were doing, he bought a DB7 (now has a DB9 - lucky sod!) It was their attempt at a more anonymous / less larey car for the people who actually HAD the money at the time! (older execs...)

This however, like the bag of scag, floors me!

Hmm. Hard to say :P in my opinion it doesn't look like "a real" Ferrari. It's not that curvy sporty looking :P

It kind of really looks like a Hyundai :o

I don't like this whole "Ferrari-worthy" argument. A hot car is a hot car, and that car is hot.

If it had a Lexus or GM badge I would say the same.

What will make it a Ferrari is the engineering, build quality, and exclusivity.

+1 cheerleaders.

anyways, I think the star mags are supposed to be reminiscent of the 80s ones on just about every ferrari. Nicest part of the car in my opinion.
