    I hear that a lot of people say that it is predictable; still one of a 458 off-spring … not a new car ...

    Nice line up...to me F8 best design of the three. Very aggressive yet retains elegance and flowing lines.

    +1 . The more classic look will stand the test of time better.

    Personally I don't think it's redundant, just that they are sharing similar design elements / looks to tie them together to the marque. I thought the same during the good ol Pininfarina days between 458/Cali/FF/F12 as with 488/F8/812/Port/Lusso...new SF90 seems fresh, to me just a matter of whether it's a good design or not

    I just think Manzoni's/FCS designs aren't speaking to me as much as last gen of Pininfarina models (beating the dead horse), but this is very subjective and likely different for every individual

    SF90 is growing on me actually as more specs are released. 488 and 488 Pista design are my favorites from Manzoni, followed by 812 / 812 Monza. I am biased because I now own a 488 but I also own a 488 because that was the design I liked the most (retained a lot of the 458 look which I wanted). YMMV!

    Ok I did look for this information but did not find it. The Ferrari 458 Speciale does not have Pininfarina badging. Was it still 100% Pininfarina designed and the badging was left off for some reason?

    The badge is off because it is derivative of the Italia, modified by FDC; not fully designed by pininfarina.

    To me Pista looks the best. Not even close.

    HA! F8 wheels and rear look like ass. Pista looks best of 3. Maybe I'll like the F8 more in person.

    To my taste they still haven’t improved on the 458. It looks like they are TRYING TOO HARD. Perhaps they should just tone it down a bit.

    Reminds me of the 360 and fhen the 430 was so angular it ruined the looks of the car IMVHO. Beauty is indeed in the eyes of the beholder.
