    Still don't know if I like it or not... with the roof scoop and all.

    It looks similar to one on the board, but I forgot the screen name.

    Saw the car at the LA auto show - Didn't care for the scoop on the roof, but liked the hood.

    I also do not like the roof scoop. The hood doesnt do it for me either. I like the idea of a hood similar to the F50, but I think the angles are too sharp. They need to be smoother, and have good flowing lines like the F50's. I dont mean to bash this car! I would kill to have it in my garage. I would just make a few adjustments, thats all.

    I don't think the Target roof scoop+hood match with Hamann front lip+side skirts.

    ** If they need a vehicle that will float, get a Range Rover. The air scoop over the top looks totally out of place on a Ferrari. A bit of trivia, Enzo would not even build a car with turbos or AWD < in his lifetime>. I wonder if he was ever aware of the F40 and it's twin turbos? That would have been built during his last few months alive, am I correct ? Some of you Ferrari historians know the answer to that one.
    So leave a Ferrari ... a Ferrari and not try and make it a boat.

    I don't think that's correct regarding the turbos - What about the 308 & 328 turbo models built for the Italian market to avoid taxes? Also, let's not forget my favorite - The 288 GTO!
     
  9. I think the car looks fantastic, it's a breath of fresh air from all the red/tan/shields/modular wheels 360s out there that look exactly the same.

    I think it was ***** slapped by a ricer... then ate the ricer.
     
  11. Looks like total rice to me might as well add under glow. The hood and the body kit is horrible even more the hood scoop.The Wheels are the only thing that are some what ok.

    As someone else has already pointed out, there have been the 208 turbo and (328) GTB/GTS Turbos, as well as the legendary 288GTO, sold to the public 4 years before Enzo's death.

    But more importantly, perhaps, as we all, know, Formula One was Enzo's real passion. And Ferrari introduced the first of many TURBOCHARGED Formula 1 cars back in... 1980. And Il Commendatore's favorite driver of all time, the great Gilles Villeneuve, actually died in (an otherwise dominating) Ferrari turbocharged f1 car.

    Just fyi....

    vty,

    I saw a 360 that was the twin or that exact car with the roof scoop driving around today.

    It was driving in pretty heavy traffic on Wilshire Blvd near Beverly in Los Angeles.

    I saw about 6, no exaggeration, 360's within 10 blocks of this area today

    I guess the recession is over.

    It struck me as unusual and I'll leave it at that

    I like it, only if that roof scoop serves some function.(cooling,engine air intake,etc) It really irritates me to see all the non-functional doo-dads that are popping up on cars lately. That goes for the aftermarket as well as the Mfgr's..i.e the "Ram Air" '03 Grand Am with fake Ram Air hood scoops.

    I believe that 360 in the pic on the building was on the last Fchat Socal Drive.

    Read some books ...

    The F40 was commissioned by Enzo Ferrari and he was present when they released it to the press, etc.

    Enzo Ferrari would have built anything that meant winning on the track, that is what mattered to him, NOT how.

    the roof scoop has to go....I don't like it. I can live with the front bonnet. Are those scoops on the bonnet functional?

    Dave I'm with you. Although I do think the scoop looks out of place, but if it serves a function, that's fine with me.

    The rims look nice, I have to admit. Ferrari's stock rims have always been beautiful, but these rims are a nice change of pace on the F360 (as long as they're not chrome).

    The hood doesn't go with the F360, but again if it serves a function hat's fine.

    The body kit however is horrendous.

    I don't agree with adding stuff to pose, but if they serve a function then that's fine!
