    In my opinion this is not the BB. The photo of the front is a picture of Pininfarina Battista. The photo of the rear is a J50 remodeled with photoshop.
    A miserable attempt to set a trap for all of us. Under that filter there is neither the front nor the tail of the BB

    Agreed, he's just a clown with an agenda and it's not the first time he played tricks either.

    I agree. Also the floor tiles are identical in both images. Same backgound for a different 'paste' blurred image.

    Is there any chance that BB may use Battista tech?
    There are some design clue in the spy shots that may look similar to Pininfarina car.

    One thing is for sure.
    With today's technology (such as smartphones, micro-cameras for example), it's amazing how you can keep a new car's lines a secret by the deadline date.
    Amazing.

    There are clues in every recent car that came out of the Centro Stile. The two central and high exhausts are present on the SP38, the spoiler, the muscular sides and the references to the 330 P come from the p80c. The front will be a crossroads of the Pista/LF s-duct, of the J50 and of the SP38, and the sills and the sides will have been tested on the SP3JC, Portofino, J50... I noticed that some themes are tried and then fished out and interpreted on the new models.
    Other themes, such as the F12 T theme that I personally loved, sometimes comes up. It must be a fixation by Mr. Manzoni, which I fully support! Between the lines, a little masked, but that T theme always comes back!
    They test the soil. A sort of arrangement of the instruments to then develop a symphony. Come on guys! We are almost there! And it will overwhelm us.
    It will be a meeting between past and present and if the spell works like Monza, this BB will really make our head spin!

    I knew I already saw that pavement. Probably photoshopped as @isot said.

    Could be totally wrong but that wide body and square quad lights scream Testarossa to me.

    A pathological one ..

    The horizontal body split (dark panel between the tail lights) reminds me more of the Lamborghini Bravo...

    Not at all - Ferrari's Engineering dept is at least Ten time bigger so why in the world would they look to Pinin :confused:

    That’s outrageous, did the dealer tell you why you were turned down? It blows my mind that car companies have gotten to the point where they can turn down buyers that want to buy their $300,000+ cars.

    Unfortunate circumstance when volume of production and stock price become the sole purpose/focus of a company that was passion driven but I guess it’s only natural.

    Aluminium construction is a strategic decision, with its pros and cons, but I don't see Ferrari lagging behind in technology and performance. Lest we forget, McLaren's interconnected suspension has been lambasted for feeling artificial and the straight line performance of the Pista (and probably of the regular production F8) is on par with the 720's and quicker around a track to boot. It 's not only about the numbers though (even the according to Ferrari themselves the BB is about numbers), it 's also the way that a car feels and connects with its driver.
