    since the amazon rain forest has a big impact on removing carbon from the atmosphere, deforesting must have a neg impact.

    Makes you wonder what happened to the idea of planting more trees to soak up carbon? I guess there not much money to be made planting trees.

    Well... this may be harsh, but in 2050, I'll be 82. ( if I make it ) I can only base things on today, but I'm doubtful that I'll be worrying about driving the Ferrari any more... so I guess I don't really care. but it might be entertaining to watch.

    Young punk. I'll be 97, but I doubt I'll be here.

    Call me nuts, but I think the 296 looks like a freakin' blast to drive. I love the 'small', I love the idea of combining hybrid+turbo, I love the idea of gobs of HP. Maybe I'm a sucker for good marketing, but it looks hot A.F. I doubt the modificata version would be my cup of tea, but the berlinetta or an upcoming spider? heck yeah.

    Modern 250 LM styling cues. 120 degree V6!

    Looks like a baby SF90 100% as thought.

    Very nice curves, no ugly SF90 styling cues. It very definitely picks up on the lines of the 250 LM, 246GT, and 328 GTB. The V8s are huge cars these days, hopefully they really do mean smaller when they're hyping this car.

    I like the modern technology, (keep in mind I’m 52, and love a gated V-8) and the look overall is pleasing to my eye……other than the taillights. Don’t know that I’ll ever be a convert to liking an electric engine, of any sort, in a Ferrari I would own.

    Looks better than an SF90, and now that Corvette has copied the "sharp" Ferrari styling on their C8, I'm really happy to see Ferrari change to a more sensual and smooth styling again.

    Overall not bad. I think the back end is disappointing... but otherwise looks good. Not sure I'd buy one, I think the F-8 is far better looking... the side intakes could be more 308 - Dino inspired... more aggressive. but overall not bad. The wheel choice is curious....

    Well, as expected, another step forward into a changing world.

    It sounds like a “reset” to a base that can be evolved further: hybrid, smaller, V6. The aesthetic has moved back to flowing curves and visual simplicity. Yet massive horsepower and price.

    I’m not sure how I respond to this all yet.

    It isn’t that I don’t like it. Of course, it’s beautiful. I was just expecting something totally unique from a styling perspective.

    I expected this car to slot below the F8.

    Kind of fascinating how they went hybrid and RWD only.

    There is limited room in terms of performance now to slot the F8 replacement relative the SF90, fun to speculate what the next V8 car will offer.

    It's pretty. Kinda cool they reversed the flow of the heads and have the exhaust and turbos on top.
