    Proving once again that Pininfarina is rarely improved on.

    not going to comment on the appearance.

    does all the mods improve the handling? Spoiler, body kit, lowered, wheels, etc. Take that car to the track (use the same driver) vs a stock car. Which car will complete the lap faster?

    I’m open to creative body kits, ie the low and wide esthetic, but not a fan of it looking so bolted on. Looks cheap.
    It’s funny to me that this bolted on fender crap has Ferrari’s name and logo on it, yet they made such a big deal about Deadmaus’ Purrari wrap.

    Well, I guess I'm a dead man. I think the reason I like it, is because it's so much different then the rest of the run of the mill cookie cutter Ferrari's I see every damn day..

    Image Unavailable, Please Login GTS Pantera style. I'm not bothered one bit with mods on newer cars, just made so many of them, but you would not see this on say a 275 for obvious reasons. Or an F40 or 288. You cannot change perfection. The newer cars...meh.

    Since I’ve never seen what you look like, comparatively, you may be correct ;)

    Just kidding!

    To me, an f40 looks like it came from the factory with the kind of treatment in the OP already.

    I saw a liberty walk 450 spider in person in Vancouver. Honestly looks pretty good.

    I saw an article some time ago about an gentleman who had a 458 GT2 or GTC built for the street. Seems it was Sweden or somewhere like that. Anyway, this is far better than what I would call the Japanese "Godzilla"
    look we are seeing with Walker.
