Yeah, it's hard to tell what they were trying to accomplish with that front end. It looks like two different cars welded together.

But I must say though, even the F50 were never really meant to compete head-on with McLaren F1. From most of the review I've read McLaren F1 handling wasn't as good as F50's.<P>

The back end looks like it could have lent elements to an attractive modern version of the Testarossa and the 512TR. However, that front is obviously trying to integrate the design of the Ferrari F1 car, which just doesn't work for me on a closed wheel car, and thus just makes it look like a wannabe F1 car. <P>Too bad, I was a huge Ferrariphile as a kid, but that car is just unattractive. Maybe I'm dating myself, but cars like the GTO, Daytona, original Testarossa, etc. and more modern cars like the Testarossa and 512TR are some of the most attractive sports cars.....EVER. But this is just ugly.

If I didn't know better, I'd say this was 'Shopped. Too bad it isn't.<P>Here's how I'd describe the car... it's looks like a Kit-Kar. Remember that old (dating self) '80s show where the guy had an old Coyote? "McCormick & McCormick" or something. Well, that's what it looks like to me... and not in a good way.<P>Since I don't follow Ferrari news, is this meant to be a road or track car?

That's right, Hardcastle & McCormick! That's right about the time I was trying to save up enough coin from my paper route to buy this guy's '73 Pantera. Man, jet black with a 351C. I was []THIS close to getting that car! Well, maybe [____________________________________________________________________________________] this close.<P>/S

Sorry to burst your bubbles...I seriously doubt Ferrari doubts what us poor souls think, we are not exactly the demographics of this car and the 300 that are beind produced I would venture to say are already sold. Its a mute point what we think <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">.<P>I know I am not rich enough to say if its ugly or not.<P>

That's the great thing about opinions, they're free and everyone's got one.<P>I still think it is ugly, but that's just me. I'd settle for a 911 turbo.<P>George

Two totally needless points.<P>1) At least Powell is on the Bush's staff. He's a big Volvophile. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>2) I'll actually settle for a Carrera 4. Then I'll dress it up on the outside like a GT3, and send it off to Ruf and have them do the motor (no outward mods) and have that motor replaced with that of a GT3 with all of the Ruf mods they make for their first and thus far only normally aspirated motor. <P>Since I'm imagining I'm that rich, I'd like to have something kind of original. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">

I e-mailed you the picture, so perhaps you can post it here. I am sure that the pundits, here, will responde much more favorably!<P>Yannis<BR><P>
