Damn that thing looks good. But I gotta say, I definitely still prefer the 550/75 and the 456 as far as front engine Ferraris go. But I think this one looks better than the 599, even though I still see an MR2 when I look at the headlights.

No worries. I'm used to it now

Seriously though, it looks better. I'm not sure it suits that paint. It looks more girly. I think the rear of the car will always let it down though. I hate seeing too much exhaust from side profile, and this car you can see 2 exhausts. Looks tacky.

I'm kinda reminded of the TVR Tamora and Sagaris (particularly in the hindquarters), looking at those pictures. Not too crazy about the stacked quads though as well as the folding hardtop (SC430-ish?).

So this will slot in above the F430, right?

I see what you're talking about with the TVR. I see the Maser Gran Turismo though.

I think it would look great as a hardtop, convertible, eh, it's alright. Then again I will never own a convertible.

That character line is definitely one of the more impressive ones I've seen as of late. I like it, and it adds a lot of complexity to the sides.

The exhaust...eh...not so crazy bout it. And the taillights look Japanese from the side.

The front still has too much Maser in it, especially in the grille and headlights.

It's okay. Much better with the top up that's for sure. Not my favorite, but it's solid.

To be fair, the 430 pulls off a light blue colour not too badly, but yeah I'd always have red Ferraris

Sorry. I have to disagree.

I never plan to own a red Ferrari.

Good looking car
