    The sketch is only a guess by the person doing it. It is not accurate.

    However RC (the Rennteam Board owner) has an actual picture and is suppose to email the drawer giving him details so that he could redo the sketch giving a closer resemblance to what the car actually looks like.

    RC could not publish the picture claiming it would compromise his source.

    I like the center grille idea on the front.

    That's the engine of the 430 in a 360 test mule

    Test mule? I think you're looking at the real thing. Recall the F-history of putting larger displacement engines in older bodied cars:

    206 --> 246
    308 --> 328
    348 --> 355 (without cheese graters)
    550 --> 575
    360 --> 430

    You could be right, but I think indications are that it will be more significant than a mere 550/575 or 456/456M change. Stradale owners would be angry, for one thing.

    If this sketch turns out to be accurate, I'd find it very ironic that Ferrari went back to the single/central air intake at the front. It even looks like it's smiling. I guess we all need to be patient before going nuts speculating on whether this is or isn't going to be the real deal.

    I like it! If this is true, it looks to me that all the new car designers are going for the small "stuby" look.

    Out of the 5 new "stubs".... the F-sketch looks like the best blend and balance.

    That user named Rossi at the bottom of the page took my old avatar! Oh well, I guess I did good work.

    That sketch is not accurate. It will be a single intake on the front but more like the double intake now with a joining cut. Or something like that.

    With the double intakes staying where they are? That's one huge air intake! It will take up the whole front of the car.

    They're not quite as big as they are now. I can't describe it properly but it looks good.

    I love it, especially the enzo-esque rear, just hope it dont arrive too soon as I love my 360 and dont want to be driving the 'old' model too soon even if the 360 is in need of an update, maybe 2 year from now, that way I could stretch myself into the new one in 4 years time.

    If the 430 does move back to the "family look" of a smiling grille (as 575 and 612) rather than the 'wide-mouth frog' of the 360, I wouldn't be too bothered. Does the front grille actually do anything? Presumably small slits allow air to cool the front brakes whilst the rear side vents provide cooling air for the radiator(s) - but otherwise the grilles are just for show, yes? Sketch looks very nice, but I would assume a more radical re-work of the body is likely....

    As an aside, I love the way that, when the 4.2 ltr Maserati came out after the turbo 3.2ltr, all the press described it as having "a Ferrari-derived V8 engine, that is a 4.2 litre version of the 3.6 litre Modena engine", and now that the 430 is on the way, all the press describes it as having "a Maserati-derived V8". Hysterical!

    Sketch looks good & I think the Enzo rear brake lights will work great w/ the new car. I hope Ferrari does offer the new car in a 6sp. instead of just offering it w/ the F1 transmission like the Stadale & Enzo.

    Those intakes on the 360 provide air for the front mounted radiators. So, they are actually functional.

    RC said that the car does NOT look like this sketch. The single grill was just one of the variations drawn.
