To me this is a stunning design, I've long awaited the release of a production shooting-brake. My favourite designs have always been Aston Martin shooting-brakes made by custom coachbuilders.
It's totally unique and unlike what you are used to seeing from Ferrari so it doesn't surprise me that people would have a backlash. In MY opinion the 612/599 is hideous, as is the California, only the 458 and the FF appeal to my tastes. Then again I've never really liked Ferrari in general, the only one that I would really want to own is a 355 Berlinetta with a manual transmission (no F1 tranny nonsense thank you).
