    There will be a package.
    The Assetto Fiorano specification includes significant upgrades, including special GT racing-derived Multimatic shock absorbers, extra lightweight features made from high-performance materials such as carbon-fibre (door panels, underbody) and titanium (springs, entire exhaust line), resulting in a weight-saving of 30 kg. Another difference is the high downforce carbon-fibre rear spoiler which generates 390 kg of downforce at 250 km/h.

    Damn, they dropped Pininfarina design, and now they are making the same cars as Pininfarina :D

    Anyway, after the F8 I was a little concerned about the design direction, that they are keeping, but now I can calm. :) This car looks very good.

    I love it, but here are my critiques, which I don't have many.

    I wish the fuel and charging port was somewhere else, as in both locations, the hose/cable will drag on the fender. Plus, with the fuel door there, inevitably you are going to spill fuel dangerously close to the engine.

    Call me crazy, but this is not a flagship in the same vein as the Aventador to the Huracan, or the 720S to the 570S. Can you honestly say this car couldn't have been the F8?

    This doesn't resemble a new flagship or hypercar, it looks like what the F8 should have been. How are they going to replace the F8 if the flagship looks like a replacement for the F8?

    I am speculating that because obviously rear visibility will be essentially zero that the fin on the top has a rear view camera.

    They aren’t. No direct replacement. Haven’t you been following the narrative of this thread? The F8 is the last of a line. It is replaced by two more expensive cars. This SF90 and in a year or two a TTV6 model. Both battery hybrid.

    Very neat how the key looks just like the Ferrari emblem on the nose of the car!

    But I'm saying, what is really going to scream "premium" or "flagship" about the SF90 compared to whatever the TTV6 will be in a couple year? They're both going to be hybrid, both will have arguably the same performance in the real world. What is going to command hundreds of thousands of dollars in premium?

    My point is that the "LB" will look just as exotic as this, or possibly even better, so how are they going to sell this at a huge premium?

    Even if performance were the same or less, an LF looks flagship compared to an F8 or even the SP90. 812 looks like a flagship compared to a Portofino. I don't see how the SP90 can look like a flagship compared to anything. It's only slightly more exotic looking than the F8 and the J50, which it shares a lot of design with, was just a 488.

    How do you mean? This car shares no resemblance to that line.

    That's what it looks like, which is pretty disappointing considering this was being hyped as a $700K+ flagship that looked like a spaceship.

    Well, if it shares resemblance to the J50 (which it does), then it shares resemblance to the 488 because the J50 was a 488, and the 488 looks a lot like the 458, and...

    I don't think he means exactly the same body panels, but very closely related. I'd be very interested to see the chassis and aluminum frame.

    You can see the outline of the door handle from the overhead view.

    It’s as if BMW made a giant roundel or Mercedes made a giant three pointed star into a key.
