I hate the fact that yellow looks good to me now, but looks too much like a Gallardo from the front lol. Apart from that, I'm still not sold on the headlights and it should have 4 taillights.

I know that on the road I'll love it though. Red for me.

Just average to me.

Still can't get over the stupid headlight intake things or the toy-like rear end.

Doesn't look anything like a Ferrari should imo.

No "4 tail lights" setup, over the top headlights... it's average.

It's very clean looking, inside and out. The car flows better than most of the previous cars. The headlight treatment is a little odd, but I'd have to see it in real life.

There's one thing on Ferrari's that doesn't really translate into photos and it's the detail of EVERYTHING on the car. You can see all the minute details in the shape and form of the entire body when looking close. Everything has a purpose.

I'm sorry, it just doesn't look crazy enough to be a supercar. It's too toned down. It needs more ducts, more mesh and more superfluous details.

When you see those ducts covered in that precise, thin mesh in real life, it just creates this presence that no normal car can match.

I still think this looks better.

sorry, but I would take a 348/355 over any of these any day of the week even if I was totally hammered. Why cant they make something as gorgeous as those? Automotive perfection.

Some of the recent designs that should be hall of famers

1.) Ferrari 348/ 355
2.) redesigned Lambo Gallardo LP560/4 (550/2)
3.) C215 MB CL class speically in AMG trim (after the refresh)
4.) BMW 8 series
5.) the cobra
6.) 50s and 60s vettes
7.) Ferrari testarossa
8.) W140 S class aka the tank
9.) RR Ghost
10.) Bentley Mulsanne (yes the new one... this is going to look awesome in reality)
11.) Aston DB9\DBS
12.) e92 3-series
13.) Jaguar E- type
14.) the Veyron
15.) 599 Fiorano
16.) 456

Definitely agree with Bimmer Loyalist about there not being enough details (ducts, mesh, etc.). It just seems flat in some areas.

It must be very, very good. Just think, they've named it after their country.

I love everything... except for the headlights

They ruin it, completely. Don't think I could own that car, just because of how ugly I find the headlights.

I'll admit this car is growing on me but I still think the LP560 looks better.
