    Also notice as it rotates the two front supports a little similar to the 488. This will probably be the only similarity to the 488.

    As I noted this looks to be a new design language based on what we see from the front clip - smoother, simpler, rounded surfaces. More akin to Monza SP than P80.

    Overall you can expect a less baroque design as was predictable from seeing the horizontal belt line and window openings that are linear and not swoopy as on 458/488/F8.

    Expect similarly "linear" lower body lines and skirt. In fact, the 330 P analogy that's been mentioned more than once is valid as you'll notice on that car that lower body and beltline are horizontal. The only swoopy-ness comes from the beautifully contoured fenders and body side.

    Last saturday I met in Maranello our super informed member @@@@@@@@, that is here in Maranello to see the new model. We had a very but very pleasant talk about cars in a lounge bar. He told me so many things and detailed info about this new model (and about several of the ones that will come later…) that I wanted to ask him if he was the new Ferrari GT cars boss…
    No: he isn't, but it's Amazing to learn so many news about the Ferrari new models from a guy that comes (almost) from the other side of the world and that is telling you what they are doing (more or less) on the other side of the road where I live…

    So, what I can write is this: this new car is full of technology and (from some bad quality pictures leaked…) could be very good looking with a clean design. I was much impressed by the evocative design of the new 812 cabriolet (maybe because the picture quality was much better…) even if (my opinion is) the new 812 cabrio will be a very good looking but standard car while this new S@@@@@@@@@@@ will be a milestone car.

    Ciao

    PS
    812 Cabriolet (I think) won't have a MSRP more than 400 K euro. Maybe much more car for the money than a Monza SP2 (4,5 times more expensive and the same car, more or less).

    I'm sorry: I did a typing error (means I wrote here the name in a bad way) and I'm so old that I don't even remember what I was told.

    The real name is SUPERFIGASTELLARE (means a p@ssy that is so nice looking as a star)

    Ok, so from tomorrow we'll wait for a SP90 Competizione :D
    (hoping it's a P and not a F...)

    This super informed member, it always surprises me why is he in possession of such inside knowledge, theoretically he is nothing more than a good customer from overseas. Is he also a very close friend to all Ferrari bosses, like, always??

    So the bad quality leaked pictures, are those of the Instagram post from yesterday or so? The ones with the repeating floor tiles?

    And then the name… I assume the number of @s is not random…
    "Superleggera"?
    "Superamerica"?
    "SP90Stradale" also fits but it's not very logical.
    Neither is "SF90Stradale" which would be absurdly pretentious. Problem is "SF90Stradale" kind of matches the hint we were given by @@@@@@@@ that it is "a name used in a Ferrari model years ago and also an actual car, a fast one…"

    SF90? Named after an underdog
    What a tacky and cheap name
    Who decides these names?
