    Those are the first pics I've seen of what are probably the stock seats. I think it needs Daytonas (or the sport seats, if that floats your boat.)

    More I see it, more I like it!!!

    I used to HATE this car, but I like it more now. Who at Pininfarina did this car? Is this another work by Ken Okuyama (the designer of Enzo)? I've known Ken for years, but since he moved back to Italy, I haven't really heard from him. Ken's designs have that affect... People don't like it in the beginning, but it grows on people quickly - Enzo, 612, Quattroporte...

    The car looks like his design... Does anyone know?

    I agree - I think it is an amazingly good looking car. They took the looks of the 360 and improved on it - without huge changes. Its more aggressive. Simply gorgeous. I also like the interior. Very nice job Ferrari..

    The car is hot.
    It looks even better in yellow I think.
    But the steering wheel is taking some work getting used to.

    I personally think the best part about this acr is its interior, although I like the rear as well... But the front needs a bit getting used to.

    Well, since we're posting pictures of "treatments" we've done to the car, i'll go ahead and post mine...

    i rounded the air intake behind the door, good rid of the slit thingie on the side of the front fascia and edged out the bottom of the air intake on the front fascia, sort of how Ryan Alexander's might look; lastly, i took off the spoiler on the back, between the tail lights...

    I kinda like getting rid of that huge opening on the bumper but I think the lower air scoop should be similar to the one on top. Previous opening on the bumper on 360s looked continuous with the lower air scoop behind the door and the current one is just there with no continuity. also, There seem to be clash with right angles and circular openings. They should either both be angular or circular and I think Ferrari made a mistake of splitting the two.

    I luv em but NNO owners should be dissapointed. They paid SOOOO much money for their precious pony's and now they're selling a car with similar styling (not performance) for much less!!!! I mean I like the car but come on they are pushing the Enzo touch a little far.

    Not sure if it's the lens used to take the pictures but the car looks like it's too short for the lines to work properly. A bit too chunky for my taste...at least in the photos.

    From what I've read, only the back end has been lengthened to improve aerodynamics. So I'm not sure why it looks chunkier than the 360. Maybe it's the tall 250LM style intakes over the rear fender. I'm not a big fan of the 360 either.

    Oh well, I'm sure it will be another big hit for Ferrari. Regardless of what I feel about the styling.

    Hmmm... I never liked the front bumper at all. But now that I've seen more "amateur" pictures. The different lighting and non-professional feel, actually make it look better to me. I think I will like it once I have seen it in person.

    looks like they took a 360 and smushed it with an enzo rear quarter panel. Very cool car but i have to see it in a spider.

    not a huge fan of the hardtop.

    Interesting. The simple treatment I'd like to see is getting rid of the black paint in the nostrils... leaving it body colored... only the grill itself in black. (I don't like "painted on features".)

    Is it me or does the rear look a little too jacked-up. Seems to be too much fender gap on the rear. Otherwise a nice car.

    Has anyone every thought that maybe these things are set up this way because it worked better in testing and in the wind tunnel? Aside from the colors of the ducts, it looks unbelieveable, as for the rest, wing or no wing, Im sure it effects the performance of the car.

    Everytime I see more pics, I love it even more, I can't wait to see one in person. And to the guy saying the back might look a little "high" it's the angle, I have seen many shots, the car is low, I can tell you that for sure.

    For me I was relieved the to see the front bumper and intakes don't dominate the car like I thought they would. They are lower than I originally thought and actually looks good.

    I don't know about you guys, but I don't really like the rearview mirrors. I love the style, but the F430 logo and rest of the mirror just look odd to me. What do you think?

    Gentlemen, everything on this car enhances performance first.

    It is more aggressively shaped than the 360 to reflect the enhanced performance, yet it's still gorgeous in the Ferrari tradition.

    It's amusing how you nitpick the car. Very funny.


    Forza,

    Er, are we not allowed to have an opinion or something ????

    Come on Ferrari's are just cars. I personally do not like every one, some are better than others. The 360's head lights are very ugly as are the 575's ... and I could talk about other models, but I do not want to go on.

    This car is getting better everytime I see it, but I still think the Enzo rear makes the car look tall, as does the larger scoops.

    And I also agree with Brian CS ... why the black painted front air inlets, body colour would look much better IMO.

    so....
    will it have a name or a number? Monza? or 430 alone
    cars named after numbers lack of personality...
    isn't 430 a big departure from 360 (number wise speaking only)
    308,328,348,355,360....................
    the 3 series is gone.....

    Why?

    I think the 250 GTO, LM, TR and 8c2900B Alfa Romeo, 1750, etc. all are great cars.

    Infact if you did a top 10 cars of all time ... I think most would be 'just' numbers.

    Once you start naming cars 'names' you have to worry about translations and other BS ... way too complicated. Like the Mitsi Pajero 4WD ... which translated to Mitsi Wanker 4WD ;) ... always find that amusing.

    Not quite a departure from their numbering scheme if you realize they all have to do with their engine displacement. The 3er is gone because the engine diplacement now has gone up to 4.3L.

    There never was a 3 series ... BMW make a 3 series, Ferrari make a Dino series. The fact that from the 308 to the 360 started with the number 3 is simply a coincidence and as said before just related to the engine size.

    Saying that I do feel there is now space for a smaller engined Ferrari ...

    There is no "series" as some of you speak of.
    The Dino was a V6, so that's to different to be compared to the others.

    Er, the 246 Dino started the smaller Ferrari series. The next car was the 308 GT4 Dino ... and this model eventually had Ferrari badges added as the sales were poor.

    Then Pininfarina created the 308 GTB on the same platform and the rest is history ... 328, 348, 355, 360, 430. The Mondial eventually replaced the 308 GT4 to provide a 2+2 smaller model.

    Maybe not a series but definitely a lineage ... Have a look at this post: http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showpost.php?p=145449&postcount=6 which I quote from:

    Definitely each following model REPLACED the preceeding ...

    Yep fair enough ... I guess we could say that Ferrari (since the Dino 206) has always had a smaller car and their bigger brother + a 2+2 model.
