Ive sat in one revving it up :)

October 21 2011, 12:09 PM 

at my local dealers.

It arrived with 5000 miles already on it and so we were ok to rev that GTO engine happy.gifhappy.gifhappy.gif

Absolutely awesome sound happy.gif

It is an awkward looking car and its loooong too.

The 4wd system reverts to rear only at 70 mph.

If you order one in the UK and get carried away in The "atelier" its 330K GBP !!!!!

Yeah it does

Personally, i'd go 458 any day of the week.

458 is my (current) dream car.

Cheers

Roger, the 599 GTO looks wicked...

October 21 2011, 12:45 PM 

I love the 599 GTO body lines at all corners..now that is a attractive design to me. Not sure where they went with the FF?

So far the new body styled Lambos look awesome..

Arthur

In my opinion they got it right....evey angle works..

the 308

October 21 2011, 9:49 PM 

from a purely visual standpoint, in my opinion the 308gtb & gts were the most beautiful looking ferraris of all time. second would be the 288gto, then boxer (without the awful "boxer trim"), and finally the 246gts-gtb.

my opinion only so please don't attack my choices happy.gif

back stateside, i did own a 1979 308 gtb white color with saddle int and i loved it. the nastiest car i owned stateside was a 1985 countach red with saddle int and it was THE sledgehammer as far as visual impact and was always fun to limp around town with for shock value, but nearly impossible for me to keep running happy.gif

now i find watches much more enjoyable to collect and play with as when they don't run i can simply toss them in a drawer and forget them until janice's Godfather services them!

The 308

October 22 2011, 3:34 AM 

really was far from their greatest cars. (Anyone like F40 LM) wink.gif

The countach on the other hand is amazing. Absolutely 100% impossible to drive, and horrible to repair - but just RAW.

One of my good friends collect Lambo's and they really are special cars. wink.gif

Still if i had to choose between a Lambo or the F458 - i'd go Ferrari...

Having there supercars lines ruined by IMPACT bumpers that do next to nothing anyway.

when I saw the first

October 23 2011, 7:57 AM 

Panamera on the street - still before series launch - I thought how well they managed to keep classic Porsche lines with 4 seats. I still rate it a good design.
But finally everyones taste is different, and this is why we have so many design alternatives wink.gif

Bye,
Derk

awful interior awful exterior

October 22 2011, 5:00 AM 

We live in times we we miss a beautyful interior life and soul, so what we design can't be beautyful as well. We will not get again the elegance and perfection of the 50`and the 60`...lost fir us...

Difficult...

October 23 2011, 7:25 AM 

to pull off a 4 seater sports car. The Aston Martin Rapide (IMHO) does it best.

I think you are all nuts

October 23 2011, 10:51 AM 

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).
