    Yes, similar.... but one is atrociously ugly while the other is a thing of beauty.

    Also, sorry for opening this can of worms. Can we please not let this thread turn into another “Ferrari copied corvette thread” like every single other thread when a new Ferrari comes out? Let’s get back on topic.

    Nothing different and honestly I have no reason to think Camilleri wasn't telling the truth during the earnings call.

    Skipping to "Yeah, they're both front-engined yellow cars" would be nice.

    Yeah yeah we didn’t need the visual thanks. That’s why I said what I said and about which models.

    When you have long cylinder banks up front in a sports car and you want a modern design language and dynamic contour lines that also make sense aerodynamically, it pretty much boxes the designers into certain proportions and shapes which are hard to get around.

    My personal theory is that secretly Ferrari chafes at the inevitable comparisons and that is one of the reasons they went to a single tail light when Corvette went to 2 round tail lights on each side for many years. And after Corvette went to dual trapezoidal tail lights Ferrari went back to dual round tail lights which they are now running with across almost the entire model range.

    I expect future models to have low and wide rectangular tail lights which began on the FXXK and should make their street car debut on the F173 BB.

    I used my special triple layer Giallo for the 1st time on my 488™️ About 3 years ago and now it’s going to be on my imminent Pista arriving ( factory collection )- I will continue to use it for speccing a lot of my future F cars ....

    Yes didn't want to say but I thought of 'your' Giallo tri-strato. Hopefully you will continue to enjoy that fine Ferrari hospitality this month in the land where 'all things are possible' when you know who to ask!

    proportion-wise there is nothing similar about these two cars. i would never be mistaken the c7 as the tdf. some lines and features maybe similar but the placement and the shapes aren't.

    it is unbelievable that people still mix up the two after all these years. some just don't have the keen eyes to differentiate shapes and form i suppose....

    Going back to topic

    Yesterday (17/05/2019) Charles Leclerc pushed the F173 very hard in the Fiorano circuit. He did several laps with it.

    Of course, the C7 Z06 was introduced before the F12 TDF. Heresy I know.

    The following (part of a ) speech is Copyright protected and happened one year ago, on May 2018:

    AM is me, DB is Dario Benuzzi:

    ------------------
    ...

    AM: “Today you still continue to test the new Ferrari prototypes: what can you tell me about tomorrow's models which you've certainly already tested?”



    DB: “Unfortunately it seems likely that in the future the path we have previously followed, that is to increase the power and to reduce the weight, is no longer possible. We are moving towards cars that will certainly be even more powerful than the current ones, but also heavier: this is due to the complexity of the hybrid systems and their batteries. I'm a little sorry about this, but the future "obligates" this for reason of emissions and associated issues .

    ciao

    It's a matter of type approval, just like the one offs that have production car mechanicals. Don 't expect anything more than a different body, or a slight power increase.

    Americans are funny. They look at a front-engine, long-bonnet, 2 door coupe, and they see a Corvette. It doesn 't even cross their minds that this is the archetypical Ferrari shape, even before the first Corvette was conceived.

    Old Corvette :rolleyes: :

    I find it funny that people argue about "this copying that," that copying this," without considering that there are only so many ways you can shape the body, and it's all been done before to some extent.
