    you really like the lp 560-4? I think the rear of of the lp 560-4 is far worse looking than the original gallardo..

    I really don't think it looks too bad. Normal, non nero Cali's are pretty unsaveable, but the black on this one hides the lines pretty well. And great pics to boot.

    Thank you kindly.

    The car looks better in person, and better still in dark colors. But IMHO, that's no different from the 550 Maranello, 575 M, 599 GTB Fiorano or 612 Scaglietti. The important thing is that it drives like a dream.

    Is that such a bad thing? i mean i know people that say they wouldn't have a Ferrari because they're too showy they say that it just screems look at me and i can see their point not that it would ever bother me i would most defferently have one, but i can still see there point. If the California doesn't do that then maybe thats what type of market it is aimed at... that and women according to Ferrari of course. Now to Ferrari owners i'm not saying that thats the reason why anyone bought one, because they have an image... Thats not what i'm saying at all i just think it's about time that Ferrari made a car A) that you can actually use regularly B) that every time you park it in a supermarket car park it isn't crowded by people peiring into it and taking pictures and saying that they love it, and they wish had one when really most people are thinking what a B*****D. I know this because my uncle had it when i had his 360. He was for ever cleaning all the finger prints of the windows. Maybe they needed to turn it down it about so that it WOULD suit women more than men, i can't see many Scud's being sold to women at all if any. That's just my opinion and for those people that still don't like it fair enough, i'm not trying to change your mind just saying what MIGHT be the case.

    I think your opinion is pretty much spot on. The car is designed to open up new market segments and attract more girls to the brand. Personally, I think attracting more girls to the fold is a good thing... However, since I am not one, I wouldn't want to own this car. The irony of this is that the tech that's under the skin is very good - and therefore a total waste of time as far as women are concerned. Mixed priorities???

    probably men will comprise the majority of buyers for this car. It must still appeal to male requirements, ie, exhaust note and performance.

    410SA- Thanks for posting photos of those other ugly single taillight cars. Pininfarina should be ashamed.

    tripson- Is that people or cars? As an official oldtimer, I might take offense at that.

    You seriously do not like the 166 Barchetta, 250 MM, 250 GTO, 250 LM, 250 GT Lusso, 330 P3/4, or the 275 GTB/C? What drew you to Ferraris in the first place if not the performance, beauty and heritage these cars represent?
