    Back on the box tomorrow night at 8:30pm. I think they are going to have a review of the new 612 Spaggetti. Worth a watch.

    Thanks for the reminder, I've seen the adverts for it on TV, which features the 612 in a greenish colour, I really wonder if it sounds like it does (Like the F1 car!) on the mini clips they're released?

    Ok before watching that I was very unsure about the 612. After watching that i love the car. The still pictures dont seem to do it justice. But on the programme in that blue the car looks fantastic. Love the long bonnet, and also like the interior too. Plus that smiley grill doesnt look bad either; actually looks good.

    Agree or still hate it???

    I felt exactly the same way. Having looked at the pictures I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not. The press shots seemed to exaggerate the proportions in a particularly unflattering way.

    As soon as I saw it moving and from several angles, I thought it was fantastic. I originally thought the front end looked at bit porsche-like in the pictures, but on TV this was far from the case.

    I dunno why, but I think I'd have preferred to see Tiff test it rather than Jason.

    Hmmm..I agree with that, Jason didnt really 'test' the car, there was no comments really made on how the car felt to drive, how it compares to the 456. I think I am going to wait for EVOs road test of the vehicle, I am sure it will be in the next issue....

    I saw the program and actually though the 612 looked pretty good. The pictures make the front look weird, but when its moving it doesn't look at all bad.

    Is Kevin tempted???? ;)

    It still remains a 'barge' of a car. The rear actually looks better than the recent press images, but the front end remains...odd. The tiny front lights don't add anything to the overall presence of the car, it's still very slab sided and digital info in the interior looks dated already. I know this has been said before and we need to 'move on' but the 612 has nothing on the 456.

    Interesting you know, I thought the car looked pretty damn good on the move too. Tempted yes, in red, but not at £170K. The fact that Jamie Oliver's getting one is a bit off-putting too. :)

    Poor Ferrari. Jamie Oliver could do to the 612 what Alan Partridge did to the Lexus! ;)

    Jamie's got a Maserati at the moment, and this hasn't had any negative impact.

    However, Jodie Kidd also has a Maserati so....

    Negative impact of Jamie is less than positive impact of Jodie thus overall a positive impact.

    Ferrari need to GIVE Jodie or similar a 612 then :D

    I thought it was a pretty favourable review (about from Jason not particularly liking the F1 style gears). Styling wise , the car is increasingly growing on me, although in view of the usual depreciation of 12 cyl ferraris , I cant for the life of me understand why anyone would want to shell out 170k for a new one. IMHO Its making a moderately used 456 look like the deal of the century.
