this friday:-)

The invitations are out. The USA is early (5/6 feb)

The rest of Europe over the following couple of weeks.

Prepare to be amazed. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but here you will all be lost for words! Thoughts of McLaren P1s will fade into a foggy, distant memory. Except, of course, for our friend Glickenhaus who has a bone to pick it would seem!!!!

Awesome.

I can hardly wait to see it.

Erik, have you seen pictures of the F150? I may be mistaken but I vaguely remember reading something here saying that you had? Then again, I could be thinking of Michael (TOOL-FAN).

Anyway, if you have, what are your thoughts on it?

I find the following descriptions incredibly intriguing.

It is identical in size to a 458, but has a lower roofline and is MUCH lighter. The car will have more systems, dials and settings than a space station, and will feature a retractable rear wing. The shape is timeless, beautiful, and not so far from some artist impressions out there, all I can say is hourglass figure!

The underside has been developed, and is much more advanced than I've ever heard of, really, if you've seen the underside of a Bugatti Veyron, this makes it look simple.

The power output and emissions are the highest and lowest of any Ferrari engine respectively, and they are calling it a Hybrid system.

Really, I've seen the McLaren up close, had the talk and tour, but this Ferrari is something else!

All I can say is, if your excited by this car, turn your dial up 10more turns!!!

The F150 will really mark the beginning of a new era for the Ferrari brand and the automotive industry in general. The car will be introduced in mid-February and as anticipated by other users in this thread the teaser images are tricky...

The F70 being a prettier Ferrari than some I own isn't something I really worry about too much.

As for classic looks of course the F70 will be prettier than a P1.

Around a race course however, it will be quite a different matter.

@AJ

These kind of posts gives people enormous hype & they expect "unseen miracle". Problem is that every single super-car was presented like that before unveiling. And when it comes to unveiling most people`s reactions are: "Meh, I need some time to get used to it" or "When I see it in person, maybe I will like it".

I have seen a styling model - it may have even been so long ago that what I saw will no longer be the same as the car Ferrari will produce, but some elements do seem similar to what the prototypes portray.

I'd heard Ferrari were still trying to settle the final issues on the car's styling at that point, and that internal struggles were causing delays. There were also some suggestions made here that changes were made to the tub after it was presented in Paris - I guess we'll have to see if that holds true.

I didn't see enough to render a proper judgement - I don't even usually like doing so from photos as complex designs always look different to the eye in person.

As neither are racing cars that is not really the soul of the question.

As for the ability of each constructor to deliver World Championship winning GT cars, well the story has been told

Let's not forget that McLaren has not won a Constructors World title since the last century - notwithstanding Mercedes-Benz.....

Nice picture! Don't see too many McLarens in it. Love the P4, ex Piper if I'm not mistaken (!!)

At last, after 5,000 posts and nearly a half million views, we are going to see the real thing. I am as excited as everyone else even though it is totally vicarious.
