    I’m think he will be wishing right now that he had been taken to the backroom in a Las Vegas casino for stealing, then what’s going to happen to him now

    You speak like you have special knowledge but it is obvious that you don't.

    Besides what has this car got to do with the limited edition, track focused, non hybrid McLaren? Totally irrelevant.

    My first impression last night was a bit underwhelming but I woke up this morning and took another look, without the ‘spaceship’ idea in my mind and after seeing the J50 picture. What is there not to like about the J50?! I can see that I have to fill in some details in my mind because the picture is poor (and pretty bad behaviour from whoever took it, let’s be honest - I would rather have the full surprise tomorrow night when I am there) but I am feeling hopeful. It does look very similar to J50, which is a very good thing. Talk of it being like an F8 is not accurate to me, except for the fact it is a mid engined V8 where many of the proportions are already set - short wheelbase, short rear overhang, long front overhang, wide hips, low front. Did anyone really expect those elements to be different? We could all see the mules. I personally think this is clearly different to F8. The glass area is very different, the rear three quarter is very different, the rear deck is very different, the roof is very different, the side details are very different and the side vents are somewhat different. That only leaves the front, which we can’t see! I suspect this is going to look like a mini LaF crossed with J50, two cars I like very much. If it’s a targa as has been hypothesised, then this will be very nice indeed IMO.

    Honestly what can they do, if he’s an employee obviously fire him, and if he’s a contractor obviously Ferrari can pressure the contractor to do the same. But obviously, the only real recourse if he’s not meant to be at that specific location is get him arrested on trespass.

    Are you guys really advocating something more than that??

    Seriously guys relax. Ferrari’s security is also to blame as much as this guy’s “bad” judgment.

    Also heard that the "spaceship" comment is more applicable to the interior.

    talking seriously: they won't do anything to this guy, of course, except banning him forever from any Ferrari working activity, visit, event and so on. But he is not in his best day!

    I forgot: I don't work for Ferrari factory nor for anyone Ferrari related and I have no interest to promote anything: I'm just an enthusiast a bit unpleased of what happened.


    Ciao

    Just heard from Louis Camilleri that it was his chief marketing officer. He wanted to grow the hype and bring some action into the thread:) mission completed.

    Quoting myself for more people to see. Look at the picture again and actually look at it, the black roof throws it off but it is definitely the F8 spider has to be.

    The more i see this crap photo the more I realize I will love this car .
    It will be a subtle blend of curvy and angular shape ..
    The only doubt i have is the headlights design .

    it's always the story for the "leaks" before main events. I actually told yesterday on a related news as a disqus comment that someone will leak it tomorrow. disqus.com/by/balcis/

    It is a regular production model, I'm fairly certain these are just allocations for the first deliveries.

    Anyway, I think it's the first time in a while that both significant style revealing car picture and name are leaked before the official presentation, even if just hours before.

    All yet to be confirmed but I guess we're at 99.99% probability...
