it looks a bit weird...
What happened to the smooth curves of ferrari?

Looks like it was designed by the bobd at ford or vauxhall (very focus lines or astra)

Yuk!!!

I always thought Ferrari made nice looking cars.

Until this one...

There's some 250 LM in there, and i'm sure i detect a note of Panther Solo.
It's nicer than the f50, but really no oil painting.

Disappointed of Rouen

I will only comment on the front: don't they intend to remind us of the formula 1 car's front spoiler with the design of the "grille"?

It looks fairly nifty from the 'waist' down, but the line of the cabin on top seems a bit iffy.

If just doesn't seem to gel to my mind, although it could be the angle the photo was taken from, I suppose.

Nah - doesn't work for me, and for that reason alone I won't buy one!

It looks like they've done a cut-and-shut on a Mercedes SLR and a Pagoni Zonda?

Not their best, although I thought the F50 sucked too.

Looks a bit like something Captain Scarlet would drive.

Not impressed at all.

I dunno lads, I think the lighting of the photo isn't helping here (Note the disturbing highlight on the left hand seat) I'd like to see more pics from more angles before I decide how icky it is

Remarkable - and I thought that the F50 was grotesque (oh, right, it is grotesque). My, how times change... What a wretched pastiche of F1-derived styling gimmicks. I sure hope that it's aerodynamically functional, at least. What do they say: "A fool and his money..."!?!

It looks like three F1 cars parked very close to one another - but not as attractive - all I can say is oops !

Now you point it out, it does have more than a passing resemblance to those handheld 'dustbuster' things.

If thats all they can think of for there new road car, I can't see them going far with this one, but ther will be plenty of mugs with the money to by one and then put it into shrink wrap only to bring it out to sell when there is no petrol left (oh my god, a day without petrol, what will we doo )

Ferrari seem to make striking cars these days, rather than beautiful cars like the 355.

Seems a bit more functional....bits of GT prototype with a whopping great big smack of the old Lancia Straos (check out the side glass. In fact I reckon those people at Henessy must have been consulting for Ferrari....
