You could be correct, we can't say for sure so it's anyone's guess.
It makes it fun to speculate ! !

damn thats a lot of power. I mean, the 458 already smokes the tires on exit in first through third gears. I can't imagine what you would do with 50% more power, beside buy more tires!

In the F40, first and second gears are pretty much worthless. Gonna need a lot of technology to manage that kind of power.

I just read an article here that says the F70 will sprint up to 250 mph. Not sure I believe that but with he power to weight its really going to depend on aerodynamics.

I really don't think so. Besides being ugly, looks simple.

Looks too much like a Opel Speedster or Vauxhall VX220. Kinda short and squashy; not long enough.

Surely they are testing a 458 Stradale or something because those rear tyres are just too narrow?

The 599 is just nowhere near as elegant as the 550/575 (it's too big, for starters), and the 430 was a conjunction of funky angles and bubbles. The 612 is even fatter and blander than the 599. The FF and F12 are both far too Japanese.

Ferrari's record of design progression out of the 90s is pretty half ass.

Those cars aside, even the Enzo isn't really what I would call pretty. It's stunning in the carbon, but that's about it. The rear 3/4 view is the best way to see it. Everywhere else, there are just too many angles colliding. Very little line form and flow.

I think the new car will be ugly simply because Ferrari's emphasis on eye-pleasing, external aesthetics has declined since about 2001.

I hope I'm wrong.

As you realise, these are your personal views and many people would vehemently disagree with them! I find the Enzo absolutely stunning, like a fighter jet that has locked on to its target! The 599 is to my eyes far more elegant than the bland 550/577 and the F12 is just amazing, whereas the 430 is much more aggressive than the rather tame 360. We agree on the 458 and the FF though... lol!

I love these comments which we are supposed to take as facts and not opinion from a guy who doesn't have a Ferrari and has a Japanese car.....
So the F12berlinetta looks too much like your Nissan 200sx? ;-)

IMHO every one's opinion of recent Ferrari design is as valuable as everyone else's.

I personally like the 458 but don't like the FF or the F12.

I hope Ferrari's next Enzo looks good but feel based on recent designs that is not a slam dunk.
