If this "car?" is supposed to have Formula 1 in it then where is the roof intake and Max Power rear spoiler? The mirrors are pure "bad" kit car and the roof, well to save money they have borrowed the F50's after having spent all the 2.50 budget on the secondhand TSW Blades that belong on a ! I do like the side intakes and front grille but com'on Ferrari the rest and start again.

Now I know the f360 was no mistake.

Having slagged them off I now feel better and will stick with my F355 until the modena lads get their sht together.

could you people spare to Ferrari comments like โ€œitโ€™s uglyโ€??? you bet this wonโ€™t be the final design, it will have more Pininfarinaโ€™s hand โ€“ letโ€™s make โ€œwill be beautiful just like all the other Ferrarisโ€.

well, anyway, who cares? if I ever could put my ass into any of these, you bet I wouldnโ€™t care if itโ€™s ugly or beautiful. well, yes, it is beautiful. letโ€™s see: v12 650hp 1200kg , a F1 as roadcar. just like everything should be.

FERRARI RULLLEEEZZZ!!! ITALIAN CARS ARE THE MUST! SHOW TO MCLAREN WHO RULLES, FERRARI!!

Any one remember the road legal Gt special that Nessan created a couple of years back???? (i think it was called the R390)

Ferrari has a hint of that shape present (Jap style wings and Vents), just take a look at the Veilside Supras and Skylines, and you will see the resembelance..

Disgraceful ferrari....

The Zonda and (new) Lambo will steal the light on this one...

I think it is stunning, very functional and aggressive looking. The only negative is the Lancia Stratos side window.

First the 360, now this, finally Ferrari is shrugging off the past and moving forward, in a way Porsche with that crazy rear engine position in the 911 cannot.

Uh this thing is fugly. Sorry but Ferrari/Piniferina (sp) never ceases to produce horribly designed cars aesthetically. I do like the 456M. And I do respect ferrari's decade cars F40, F50, 288gto because they are light weight and "purebred" unlike their other road cars. So this F60, even thou I believe it is much much less beautiful than the Mac F1, I apprieciate the wonderful Ferrari technology inside. 7 speed transmission and 30% less weight engine WOW! And I can count on it being very light weight something even the heavy Modena has trouble with. I hope ferrari will at least prepare this car so it can be competitively run in the GT and endurance races!

Can see where people are saying the front looks like an F1 nose cone... yeah, but more 90's Tyrell (Alesi's car with the anheadral (sp) wing that Ferrari).

As for the rest of it.. butt ugly... front end reminds me of Toyota's MR2 extreme...

the only way i can truly oppose this design is to say that it isn't an instantly gorgeous car. Oh, everyone complained about the murcielago... remember those dreadful first official pics of the yellow car that made all the edges stand out instead of showing the more coherent overall form? Wait on it. This car will be a shocker, I'm sure. I remember reading a letter in car and driver about the pagani zonda from a reader who hadn't seen the car prior to that article and said, That it must have been the work of the pontiac aztek's braintrust after having been fired from gm. it is truly terrible that so many people jump on the "fugly" wagon before actually seeing the car. check out supercars.net for a higher res pic. There's beauty in there, but no, it isn't a jaguar r coupe either.
