Sometimes the photos in the magazines and on the internet just don't help! Just ask Keith Richards, Hugh Grant, Britney, etc.....and the 360 Modena, which never looked stunning in 2D. And I think that it's the same for the California. I have always thought that the "package" was great (front engine, V8, 2+2, folding hardtop, etc), but not the styling. However, the more I see the car in the flesh, and the more I put that look in the context of the "package", the more I like it! For sure, there'll be more of them than the 458 Italia, but this is not a "VolksFerrari"!
