Well yeah...each bit individually is slightly different, but if you squint, you can hardly dell the difference

I just don't get this car at all. The niche filled by the 456 and the 612 is that of a super luxury coupe that also delivers Italian styling and performance. It would compete against a Bentley Brooklands or a Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe. It's not supposed to be a hatchback, especially not a ~$400,000 hatchback. It's just dumb. Do you see James Bond driving up to a casino in that?

Better call BMW and tell them they named their car wrong.

I thought he only rolled in Aston Martins...so no, I don't see Bond driving a Ferrari.

Another pic. First time I've seen this angle/color anyway.

And I still like it... Maybe even more so.
