    Agree, except the 2000 units figure is absolutely not the year production: I was told they will produce 500-700 per year and maybe 2000 is more or less the expected production in the Whole life cycle of that model. And more or less the half are alredy sold (just rumors, but very reliable). So, there are free production slots only starting from mid 2021

    135 km/h is the top speed in all-electric mode.

    Ferrari claims its 64 meters ahead of LAF at Fiorano. You either believe them or your don’t. And 220 kph is fine for disengagement. Do i wish it was more, yes, but that’s 136 mph and you’re rarely if ever going faster than that. From personal experience on “closed” public roads everything gets a little scary at about 150 mph anyway. Most ppl will drive these cars exclusively on public roads.

    I was quoting the car guys YouTube video where he claimed Ferrari plans to sell 2000 a year. I didn’t have the info verified. However, it’s non limited production car so I’m assuming if the demand is there the supply will increase.

    I do believe them. I also believe that the latest Cup 2 tyre is more than 64 metres "quicker" than LF's 2013 spec Corsas. :)

    This new car is MUCH faster than the previous flagship, the 812SF, whatever tyres you put on the 812SF.
    And, unless you are Marc Genè, De Simone or another PRO, you will turn at Fiorano faster than with a Laferrari, whatever tyres you put on the F150

    Source: the top of the sources available. Please think about who can he be.

    Not sure why you had to go to phallic symbols in regards to the key, but hey you be you.

    That said, the key is pretty simple. It's just the square logo badge, which happens to be the same size if not smaller then most new keys I see these days. Heck, the Tesla key is literally a toy model mold.

    I still keep a wallet because not all places have gone fully digital. I wouldn't be able to get inside a Costco, or my work (I happen to work arguably at the preeminent technology company in the world) yet our buildings still use keycards.

    Hell, I'm cheap, so I have a myriad of discount cards, frequent buyer tabs, and gift certificates. No, they often don't have a digital variant.

    Like your mention of horse dildos, be into whatever you want, you don't like billfold wallets? Cool. I don't like ultra minimal wallets. You're not right, and I'm not right, and I wouldn't ever say it's dumb if you prefer it.

    Not everybody has the same needs, situations, priorities, and interests.

    I don’t get why the hate for the key. The bright red key fob is hardly inconspicuous...

    Exactly. I argue it's actually the smallest, most simple, and straight forward compared to what other high-end manufacturers are doing.

    Let's take a look again.

    Lambo looks like a mini Torch, see the Pagana and Koenigsegg? The Ferrari one is the most boring and understated compared to those!

    You are right: I don't understand why anyone that is a Ferrari enthusiast cannot like such a key. It's like having always in your hand the front badge there is in your Ferrari: I cannot even imagine one better key, nor if it was paved with diamonds and I were given for free… ;)

    I think you hit the nail on the head. I think most enthusiasts would like it. I also respect those that think it's terrible aesthetically or prefer dildo shaped keys. The great thing is it's small and simple enough that one can just put some electrical tape over one side if bothers them so much.

    Impossible to try to do that on the 'giant showy keys that are dumb and dated' like BMW.

    I'm 100% with you. I have just one point still unclear: the ones that think it's "terrible aesthetically", what did they do after seeing the new Mc Laren GT? Did they hang themselves to a tree? ;)

    haha :)

    I'm just talking about the key. I think there is a cohort out that feel a lot of pain and misery when somebody buys or owns a fancy key.

    Lambo is producing 1’200 aventador per year. No way Ferrari will sell 2’000 sf90... I would go with Albert figures.

    I bet your Pista looks epic in that color. Nice choice.
