After the crappy 360 and even crappier 612 Ferrari has finally come up with a car that looks like a Ferrari, the F430 (Modena?):

490 HP, Vmax 315, 0-100 ~4 secs.

The 360 Modena crappy, the 575 Barchello crappy, 612 Scageletti crap???? The entire Ferrari F1 program for the past decade??????? Are you sure you are not confusing Ferrari with FIAT??

Maybe I need to finish my morning tea before reading this topic?

Yes, the 360 and the 612 look like crap. The 575 would look ok if it didn't have that riceboy whole on the front. The F1 cars aren't for sale (except a few downgradged old ones).

This of course is my opinion, but I'm not the only one who didn't like the girls look of the 360, and the 612 is the worst looking Ferrari in history. Probably the low point of Pininfarina when they had to copy design ideas from Chris Bangle.

Luckily, they are back on track and the 430 looks just gorgeous.

I´ve always been a Ferrari Fan and I´m one of the last who are not completetly bored by the them winning almost all races in F1 nowadays (as long as there is some fight a ferrari win is the best!).
But i agree the streetcars from Maranello aren´t as arresting anymore as they were in the 50s, 60s, 70s or 80s.

The Scaglietti is crap indeed, a racer for rich pensioners. Designwise a halfhearted reprise of the beautiful Daytona of 1969.
The Maranello is so-so, but doesn´t match the forerunners 512BB or the mid-80s Testarossa (the last Testa-version wasn´t fine anymore though).
The now dead F50 was one of the worstlooking Ferraris ever. Remember they had some oddities in the 50s?
The Enzo Ferrari I haven´t made a final verdict about. I don´t like the front, the rest is ok.
But I like the Modena in its closed-top version and I´m happy the 430 is just a major facelift.

I wouldn't call starting from pole and being un challeneged all the way to the end a fight.

Don't get me started on F1.

I think that is funny, since most likley if someone handed you the keys to a ferrari the last thing you would do is say how you think they look bad...
