    Now then.....I think it's fairly well known that I'm no great fan of the more modern Ferrari's, That's not to say that I don't think they are not great car's, just not for me. (I hope that does not cause anyone any offence - None is meant), in fact quite the opposite, I someties wish I did like them ?

    But the shape does have something to do with it, the grill on the 360 for instance did much more than split itself and oppinon on current Ferrari design criteria, (Pinninfarina still get their brief from Ferrari), So when I saw this I quite liked it, it gave the 360 a bit Ferrari-ness bcak to the front end ? Only MHO !

    Regards,

    Steve

    I like that silver car's front, but where would you put the number plate? Would rather take the edge off it, would it not? This was something Jaguar forgot when they designed the XK8 IMO.

    Also, I dread to think what it's done to the 6000 hours or whatever Ferrari spent in the windtunnel sorting out the 360s aerodynamics!

    Where did you find the pics?

    Robert.

    Nice pics Steve, but I can't help thinking it looks a bit Porker GT3'ish.

    How was it in Zurich BTW? I read your threads, was the car a private sale or at a dealers? I ended up getting hammered on saturday night on an island in the Danube with a load of Hunrgarian girls. Of couse I would have much rather met up with you :)

    Cheers

    Simon,

    It was a private seller, as it happens I'd rather have been with the Hungarian Girls on the Island ! Sounds Great ............
