i didn't like the 458 when it first break cover on magazines but now i've grown to like it alot. there are lil areas that im not found of such as the headlight and tail (also prefer quad tail lights and quad exhausts.. ) but overall, it's much "smoother" and modern. like HRE M3 said, it will make F430 look dated very soon once we see it on the street more often. it's like what F430 did to 360 when it first came out.
on the side note, Enzo wasn't designed to be "pretty".. it's was designed to resemble a F1 car as much as possible and still street legal.
i do have to agree though that many recent designs by Ferrari isnt all that.. the 612, the california, etc.. are all blah..
I think McLaren MC4-12C will really give the 458 a good fight in design and performance. i like it alot
