    Speaking of spaceships and the like, to my eye, that looks “spaceshippy” in a George Jetson sense. In fact, the very concept of what a spaceship might look like varies mightily depending on which era you choose.

    Little surprised by the comments here. Ferrari will have a winner here performance wise..............I have no doubt about that. The 458 had a 10 year life cycle, they've been working this electric stuff before the LaFerrari. So I'm not nervous about performance.

    I'm nervous about styling but really when is the last Ferrari that has looked like total garbage? Its been a long long time since they've produced a car where all agree it looks and performs awful.

    I'm starting to wonder a couple of things. This car is said to be "above the 812 in performance and in the range". It's now being described as "wide and flat". I've noticed the rear seem very wide and the tail lights seem square or flat.

    Hhhhhhmmmmmm is this the "Testarossa Icona"?

    it'll be called SP90, and it is freaking beautiful.
    I'm afraid I can't share any pictures, though.
    Design is similar to the F8 Tributo, but the headlights go down instead of up, and backend with the 4 tail lights, but they are flattened instead of round.

    Great! We now just need a picture and then we can print the official introduction brochure…

    Ferrari SP90. V8TT, Hybrid, 4WD, four engines, 720 + 160 + 60 + 60 = 1030 hp, 1600 kg dryweight, full electric driving mode (30-35 km WLTP), active cornering system, brand new front and rear lights, berlinetta body with two triangular side air intakes with rounded edges.

    (let's see how much of that is correct...)

    ciao

    It's impossible design is similar to F8 tributo ,
    Canopy and rear engine cover are already completely differents, even with the camouflage.

    Perhaps I did not phrase it correctly, I'm sorry. I'm not saying it is the same design as the F8, it's not. Just that it looks similar (to me), especially the lower lip on the front and the tail light zone. The canopy and rear windshield is completely different though, and the exhausts are much further up and closer together than on the F8.
    The headlights remind me of the ones on the mclaren P1, but straight and not round.

    Does it have active rear wing (like P1)? Or active spoiler (like LaF)?

    you're welcome :) I wish I could share some pics, but don't want to get into trouble.

    Could not say, I only saw it shooting the footage for the release, did not see any active wing deploy. I did see it running only on electric power though.

    hmm, the canopy is not too far off, but both the front and the back are different.

    Agree with your assessment but not only dealer margin that will be affected but also more depreciation and Lower values in the secondary market

    Ferrari needs to buy the BB vs. bike video chase scenes above Maranello and put them in the Press Kit! Certainly much more exciting than watching one lonely SP90 cruise around Mugello...

    Ferrari seem to be going for the LaFerrari look again with red/black.
    Where is the yellow version?:(

    After the official launch there would not be a problem if you shared some pictures here?

    I guess, but my pictures are crappy compared to the official ones. They told us we couldn't take any photos or videos, but I managed to grab a few sneaky ones :D
