    The design has grown on me. However, with all due respect, as it is not a Ferrari, this should probably be under General Automotive.

    This section is titled: "Super Ferraris".

    How hard can it possibly be to post in the appropriate section?

    I just threw up in my mouth a little. This thing makes the SLR look good.

    Certainly promotes mass debate :)

    I thought the rear was exciting, front could do with something more.

    I understand its new owner is going to do some high speed tests soon and a possible date with the Nuremberg ring, so performance figures could potentially gain it a few fans.

    Disgusting!.

    I didn't wanna see something that could rival an SLR in styling, I wanted to see a new generation Carabo that would become the next car for Lamborghini and have killer unbeatable performance!

    What a waste of a ZR1.

    But of course.
    While I'm not in love with its looks the car is a bold statement and a good move by Bertone.
    Now about your F-Chat open house...

    Driven as it should be, maybe some FChat’ers saw a red flash going across country this week. You might catch a glimpse if it runs out of land around Monterey this weekend.

    I was just about to ask if anyone on here knows if this car is going to be in Monterey next weekend. I'm glad to know it sounds like it will.

    Is it dan360?

    I recognize the white 16M from one of his posts.

    He also opened a thread about traveling coast to coast....AND he opened a couple of great threads about his racing experiences in the Ferrari Challenge series.

    I guess it could be him?

    If so, congrats Dan!! :)
