    I really like the design, and as is the case with most Ferraris, it will look even better in person! I told my salesman that I want an allocation ASAP, and he reminded me that my Pista order was just placed! Haha! I love them all

    Image Unavailable, Please Login love the strip e with black roof. I wonder if it will be able to come in exposed carbon like Laferrari?

    Not a fan at all. The styling around the back of the car to me is bulky and heavy looking. To me the rear lights are out of proportion with the back of the car with the net result that the back again looks heavy.

    The swoop at the bottom of the door? Why, the side view looks cluttered with it.

    Maybe it will look better in person.

    ''The Assetto Fiorano specification includes significant upgrades, including special GT racing-derived Multimatic shock absorbers, extra lightweight features made from high-performance materials such as carbon-fibre (door panels, underbody) and titanium (springs, entire exhaust line), resulting in a weight-saving of 30 kg. Another difference is the high downforce carbon-fibre rear spoiler which generates 390 kg of downforce at 250 km/h. The Assetto Fiorano includes Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tyres designed specifically to improve performance on the track in the dry. They feature a softer compound and fewer grooves than the tyres provided as standard.''

    The above is from the press release

    Thanks to both of you.

    By the way, there should be three units on display: red/black, yellow/black and grey with carbon wheels.

    Wondering since so far they have not shown a steering wheel with rev lights if they have been moved to the HUD?

    Just sitting on a plane to Bologna for tomorrow night’s preview and the pictures dropped. Very easy decision, the car is in the upper reaches of my expectation. Front I need to see and am not yet 100% but the sides and rear look fabulous. I think it is a very easy decision to choose Ferrari, they are the best at what they do IMO. Haters gonna hate but they don’t have too much to get a grip on here.

    The C7 looks nothing like the 458. One, it’s a front engined sports car, so a different design brief than the mid engined 458. And let’s remember, the 458 is a Pininfarina design, not a “Ferrari” design. Which is why they kinda struck back with evolutionary design of the Battista, letting Ferrari know what they can with the DNA. But, I digress. However, we don’t know what that supposed design of the axed mid engined C7 would have looked like.
