    Ok, just throwin in my two cents on this debate

    Just got back for the NYC Auto Show, got to see both the coupe and spider up close by a Ferrari rep.

    the F430 looks absolutely BAD@SS in person. It is simply gorgeous. The pictures don't do it justice at all. Trust me, give yourself a chance to see it up close then make a decision. This one was silver, shields, grey interior with F1 and carbon fiber trim.

    The spider, well....jury's still out on this one. It looks really nice, I think the 360 is a lil better look for a spider in my opinion. red, beige interior, F1

    I'm still in awe of the coupe (and the ferrari rep)

    Did the Ferrari rep mention how to actually get one of these bad boys?

    Both are really impressive in person. The shark nose grill treatment make much more sense in person, and while I was unsure about the rear end when I first saw pics, it now looks perfect with the rest of the car. I would have liked if one of them had the Stradale wheels.

    I also thought the Scag looked great, there is a bunch of subtle details in that design I just noticed looking at it again yesterday, and the side profile is so voluptuous. (The rep's side profile was quite voluptuous too.)

    I was very dissapointed by the absence of the Pininfarina Maserati Birdcage concept! :X Come to think of it, where was the SuperAmerica? NY got ripped off!!!

    I'll have to agree. I just came back from there as well, and the cas look phenomenal in person. Is there a reason why there cars are always questionable in pictures but excellent in person?

    Prolly the same reason a live performance from a singer is far better than just listening to them on a cd.

    Gives it sort of an interactive experience.

    I think it is because in pictures you lose all sense of size and proportion and as a result you end up focusing more on details which can look awkward when taken out of context. Also getting to see how the light plays over the lines of the car is something still pics rarely capture.
