    I doubt it the 8C is based on the old Maserati Gransport chassis.

    One question not sure if it has been raised already. Where (if anywhere) do the shields go?

    I agree, but somehow the car seems to wear it´s suit well. I think she will be a stunner in a normal traffic scenery.

    I'm not seeing any of the latest Azzurro California color pics with rear shots? If so, I'm thinking F don't want people getting turned off by the stacked tail pipe thing ;)

    IMO, side mirrors looks a little corvette-ish to me. other than that, the car looks great!

    Interesting that the wheels are painted silver, not the machined aluminum as seen on all the press pictures.

    The painted wheels have thin, thumbnail grooves through each spoke and through the bolt circle. Curiously, this design was very evident in the first teaser shots on the official web site and on some of the prototypes (painted black), but haven't been seen since - till now.

    FYI All wheels are painted. So if you were thinking the aluminum aloy wheels were bare aluminum, they are actually painted silver.

    So you can have your wheel in any color you like.

    This may be one of the strangest questions I have seen around here.

    ...as an answer..like most of europe you will see mostly compact cars, mostly diesels. And of course there is a fiat purchase program, so there is a huge amount of Puntos in the lot.

    they dont drive home ferraris, and most wouldnt want to.

    cheers
