    Sorry if this is a repost, I haven't been on Fchat too much lately...

    This pic isn't good to determine the finished product, but as is, it's a cross between the 612 & 575. I was hoping for something completely different looking.

    Just you.

    The rear looks like a 550/575 and the front looks like a 996.

    Agreed, looks like alot of German inspiration went into that new design.

    I hope the 575 replacement isnt going to look like that! Ferrari badly needs something to compete with the Murcielago

    The front looks like Panoz long and awkward, but this is far from release who knows what it will look like in '06.

    I don't know. Whenever i first open the picture the lines remind me of a 350. It appears as if the front was just extended a little. Oh well.

    While I do agree it does have some German lines, especially the front fascia and headlamp units, I could still identify it as a ferrari. The overall body shape is similar to it's predecessor, considering it's long hood, pushed back cabin, and short yet wide rear end.

    I hope the Maranello replacement will be a mid-engined car
    front engine Ferraris make no sense .

    Im pretty sure thats not the official body styling, it was in another thread and someone found out that it wont be anything like that. I could be wrong though. For me I need the Hood Scoop, that is what makes the 550/575 so great.

    I disagree. I think they molded it with bondo.


    but yes... 996 from the side indeed.
