    Well, went back to the show (the LA Auto Show, that is) to catch the 612 (and a couple others that weren't there the first time). Got some pics for you all. I'm a bit disappointed with the way they turned out, but what the hell. I think the darker blue on this car hides too much of the lines and makes it look a bit more plain. Dark colors help hide awkward lines in some cars, but I feel the 612 would look better in lighter colors that would highlight the lines.

    I must say I had gotten pretty excited about the car from pictures and it was growing on me, but it didn't quite have the effect I was looking for in real life. I was expecting huge improvements for the rear seats from the 456, but it didn't look that way regardless of what they say. It's still an elegant design though and of course the specs speak for themselves. The interior was quite nice. Overall, I like it.

    Well, Shelbee...they took away the Stradale, but I have a couple pics from the first trip. The other cars were a titanio 575 and 360 spider.

    I was thinking, "This is the only chance I'll have to go"

    I'm still looking forward to seeing pics of the 612 under appropriate light - at shows. Every public showing of it has been dark, dark, dark - washing the car out - no fault of the photog working under less than ideal conditions. Did any of these people setting shows up take the lighting test? Even Fashion Majors have to take lighting classes - what gives?

    When it comes to what John Q. Public thinks, it's made a big difference. I still think it's a beautiful car - having seen but a few shots in the right (read: any) light.

    I still dont know if i like 612, but its growing on me more and more. I 'll just have to see one in person. I hope they have one at the Denver auto show, but i dont think they will. If not i'll just have to wait until Ferrari of Denver starts getting theres.

    Thanks for sharing,

    I like the way Ferrari keeps it exclusive, expensive, untouchable during autoshow and limited production.

    Love the hardwood floor on the show,

    FORZA FERRARI

    (Other crowds in the show can just drive non-Ferrari cars and let them just dream, right??) :)

    Surprisingly they did not have an ENZO there??

    Is the color for 360 CS Rosso Corsa or Rosso Scuderia??

    the LA autoshow was quite disapointing. The crystal cove was a much better show!!

    Speed Addict, sorry no ferrari.com account. Just saw your thread on this.

    Shelbee, no Enzo. They had a yellow one last year though. I believe the CS was Rosso Scuderia. It was hard to tell with the flourescents/bad lighting--I decided it was Rosso Scuderia though. The first CS I ever saw was Rosso Scuderia and I could tell immediately that it was, but it was parked outside in the daylight.

    So more orange red color?? Personally I don't like the stripe, don't they have the same one on Miata??
