    I still can't believe they made such an ugly car.. I'm hoping I'll wake up and it'll all be a bad dream.

    Maybe it was a ploy to bolster 456 residuals !

    Maybe.. just maybe it'd look better with smoked/darkened headlamp covers

    As it is now, it doesn't look good.. a bit like the 360 headlights, which I'm not a fan of.

    I don't like the car either. It does not look Ferrari. It is really ugly.

    It's a beautiful car! If you think it's so hideous, don't look at it. Show some respect!

    I think it is a relatively good looking car from the windshield and backwards. But that UGLY nose! Personally, I prefer the 456 way over this car.

    Guys, I'm telling you...pics don't do this car justice. It's beautiful in person and the interior is excellent.

    Everyone has an opinion...

    The 612 has actually grown on me quite a bit.

    Truth be told, I don't like the nose, and the 456 was a better looking car. I can think of many worse designs lately though.

    I like the 612.

    It is certainly a more conservative design than, let's say, a 360, but very much in character with a 2+2. One thing that amazed me is that my 6'-2" frame fits in the back seat fairly comfortably, something I cannot say about a 456. The car most certainly has retro styling cues, specifically the front end, which is the part of the car that I like the most. It definitely looks better in real life.

    And 540bhp? Who can argue with that?

    Looks like this picture was taken at the ATL auto show. Just wondering because I did not recognize the sales guy standing inside FOA ring. The little jerk there Saturday morning would not give me the time of day and would not answer any questions on the new 612.

    I actually like it the new 612. Having already 1 child and a second on the way, the practicallity of the 4 seater makes since to me. But the azzhole working the arena did not care. Apparenly he did not want to be down their Saturday morning answering questions, that was evident. The Englishman over at the Mayback station would answer any question you threw at home though.

    If you have not seen this car in person you dont have any idea what it looks like. I to thought, "what the hell have they done, even worse than the 456". Was I ever wrong. The one they had at the Dallas auto show was beautiful. I even had a hard time choosing between it and the Vantage(another great looking car). It really looks great from the front. Menacing, long low nose. Back end is a little odd, but looks pretty good to. Profile is nice. See it in person and most of you will change your tune. Guaranteed, because I hated magazine pics of it.

    Unfortunately my experiences talking with the Ferrari salesguys at several large car shows are the same. Of course, I'm still a couple of years under their target demographic (or should I say, a couple hundred thousand $K under), so I guess it's okay to be rude to me.

    Not!

    (have you ever day dreamed of buying a whole car dealership or business just to fire someone?)

    Its weird, when you look at this car it is ugly as hell. But then, after a couple days of lookin', it aint so bad. Ferrari is on to those new 'bug-eyed' lights.(hence the 612 and the 360) The 612 lights, unlike the 360's, dont go with the car. It looks like the newest creation from a Japanese motor car company, with a little bit of Italian soul.

    They made a comparasion like this with the F550Maranello/Toyota Supra in the past too, remember? :) It looks a bit the same, but... it's actually totally different IMO!

    I like the lines and the interior, but those headlights have Banglelized the car. I have an idea where the inspiration came from:

    Get rid of the STUPID smilie face on the front of the car and it will look halfway decent. As it is, it looks like a cartoon.
