It looks nice but the front kinda looks a little like the Porche 911.

This isnt the same model that was recently split in half by a utility pole after hitting it at 165mph in California was it? Both driver and passenger had minor injuries. I thought it was discussed on another thread but couldnt find it. Reports said the split model was over $1m. The front ends look similar from what I can tell.

If a Porsche 911 and a Dodge Viper mated this would be the offspring. It is a beautiful piece of work.

It's just you. Aston Martin has no design similar.

This is an awesome design. best from ferrari in a while.

Who designed the Ferrari 599 and who designed the Aston? Pininifarina?

I think it's awesome but a 308 or Testarossa makes my heart skip a beat.

For me it feels like Ferrari's cars are getting less and less beautiful. Compare the 599 and the 550. The old one looks much more muscular and "dangerous".

Actually I'm not really feeling their design of this thing. The interior is gorgeous, theres no question about that.... but the exterior is a little too funky. The rims in the first set of pics are nice.... but as for the rest of the car, I just dont think it's put together well. It doesnt flow.... the front end and the grille makes it look old and wannabe classy but at the same time much of the car wants to be very sporty (the rear, which DOES look good.). It conflicts though as a whole. Thats just MHO though....

Ferrari's have a style that's unmatched. This model looks too rounded as if it's designers are trying to make it fit in with Japanese/American designs. It's almost as if this car is one of Ferrari's lower bracket models.

completely agree. This one looks too much like every other sports car, porsche, austin martin etc. The testarossa was so distinct when you saw it you KNEW it was a ferrari. Nowadays it just looks like any other sportscar.

Give me a Testarossa any day!

That's what came across my mind as well. But I like the look of Ferrari a bit more, not as angry, a bit more friendly. Who cares, they are both a cool brand. Can I have one please?  Wink

Not a big fan. I would take the discontinued 360 Spyder of the F430 over this anyday. That said it would be a step up from my IS  Smile
