Is there anyone that would like a closer look. Here is a gallery...

Just click the right arrows under the prancing horse. I especially like the stearing wheel...

Cheers

The styling's grown on me, I must admit. I wasn't sold on it initially, but now it looks pretty nice to my mind. Maybe it's the different angles, or something. All I need now is a lottery win.

Apparently you need ca. 375K of your British pounds and a track record of buying Ferraris . One of the blokes in our area group went over to the unveiling and ordered one.

Photographs never do justice to cars like this. Pretty sure it would be awesome up close and personal like. I wouldn't kick it out of bed anyway.......

The overall design come across way to "boy racer" for my tastes, however, the attention to detail and styling of the interior (not to mention the engine) are winning me over...

...especially that CF based steering wheel and those seats... extraordinary!

I have looked at the picture and it looks very smooth and nice.
Would I be able to copy the plans of the body to make a Ferrari Enzo Fiat Punto?
If I were to do this people would think me, chassis, would have the first Enzo car in the country.
Would I have to put an alarm if I did this, chaps?

Bet you the car looks awesome in the metal (or carbon fibre...).

I DON'T think 375K is enough to get one....
Not sure about the name.

The name is confirmed. (Same article I lifted the gallery from, I'll see if I can find the URL). FWIW, I don't like the name. I think maybe F60 is much better as far as lineage...

Doesn't look traditional Ferrari at all, but I thought the same, when I first saw the 348 - now I like it

Somewhat slow out of the traps with an opinion though this is, I feel compelled to issue nothing short of rapturous applause having beheld this Chariot of The Gods in September's EVO.

Quite simply stunning! The delicacy of the rear three quarter view; the way the trademark circularity of the rear light clusters has been developed with, as the article suggests, a little help from Kermit the Frog but it just looks so damn seductive.

Maybe I'm being blinded by the very fact of it's origin: maybe a Zonda is no less awe-inspiring but I just can't escape the concept of it's undoubted F1 genetics.

The exposed engine block, 360 Modena style, is a fabulous touch and the frontal aspect, whilst certainly aggressive, is undoubtedly sculpted thus for aerodynamic purposes - and yet it manages to retain a certain balletic majesty nothing, not even an F1, can carry off.

And that interior! Check the pulse, please, if that hasn't got you sweating - I NEED this vehicle! IMAGINE the adrenalin rush of seeing it in the metal; the foreplay of sitting inside and the explosion of unbridled lust as it fires into life - Oh my God - this is IT! This has now become the object of my ultimate automotive fantasy. It's just too good to be real and I honestly wish it hadn't been created.

Ferrari are sadists.

Awesome car surely... but I really don't like the front. Looks like a big marketing plot to make people feel that this car comes out of the Ferrari F1 division (whatever they call it). Call me old fashion but I'd rather have a 550M - anyway it'll be a few centuries until I am confronted to such dilemna
