    But the 250 GTO, F40 and 458 Italia still looks good even though they are dated. And for other brands the 2008 DBS V12 still looks good in my eyes compared to a portofino imho

    your complaint should be with the rules makers who continue to squeeze all car manufacturers with ever more strict requirements. The clienti cars don't lack for power or downforce.

    Ferrari will never sell that chassis at your price point. The LaF-A is not put together like a production Mac.

    In all fairness though, the Iconas are not about pushing the envelope, they are nostalgic design studies. Normal range cars and halo hypercars push the envelope.

    Ok so a year or so from now when Daytona’s come onto the secondary market, and you have ~$2.5M to spend, do you get a Daytona or an F50?

    I would be happy with either but I’m digging the Daytona.

    Maybe that’s just me. :)

    I really want to see it in person. One thing that just screams at me about the design is that it seems pretty obvious that the light bar was supposed to be continuous at the front. That’s why the channel that the light bar is in is continuous across the front. I imagine the marketing department saw it and was like “it’s distracting from the Ferrari emblem and prancing horse badge. Take it off!” LOL

    The F50 never appealed to me personally. Always thought it looked a bit weird.:rolleyes:

    IDK, that front groove element has been used several times now and I don’t think it was ever a full light bar. I’m thinking of the J50. Regardless, I dig it.

    For sure the F50 is the unloved super Ferrari. But as far as spec’s go, it’s pretty hot.

    But ya know, the Daytona looks pretty weird too. :)

    Not half as strange as the F50 to my eyes. But hey, if you like it, have at it!:cool:
    No question about performance. appearance is another matter for me.

    Thank you all for the lively discussion. I am fascinated with everyone's reactions.

    I have a hard time evaluating a car based on pictures and videos. For me, its a near impossible task to use a two dimensional light emitting screen to evaluate a three dimensional light reflecting object. Of course, at the moment, and for most of us, that's what we've got.

    My initial reaction is positive. To my eyes its instantly recognizable as a Ferrari, and I think it looks great. Sure its different- that's what Ferrari does. They don't usually do iterative. Yet, the Daytona SP3 is clearly is inspired by the prototype cars of the 60s into the 70s while not being retro at all- its quite modern in its approach. The more I've looked at it, the more I think it evokes this era of racing with aplomb.

    What makes racing interesting is pushing the limits of what's possible; and when I look at the Daytona SP3, not only do I see this exciting shape, but I also see the most powerful V12 NA they've ever made that revs to 9,500 RPM (and I think is designed to go significant mileage without a rebuild) wrapped in the most aerodynamic efficient package they've ever made- I don't think this is the work of a company that's resting on its laurels.

    Things I'm not sure about are some of the front detailing or the large area of carbon on the sides- but I have a feeling these will make a lot more sense when experienced in person.

    We love Ferrari so much because not only do they have performance, style and passion, Ferrari always manages to put these together in a way that creates for a truly enthralling experience. I think the Daytona does this and thus, I think it is a wonderful tribute to this era of racing.

    I am thankful they are still building proper dream machines.

    Bravo!

    Forza Ferrari!

    and Happy Thanksgiving - that we have the time and ability to debate the merits of such a car is in itself something for which to be thankful.

    There is absolutely NO substitute for seeing a car in person, in the metal, from all views.
    No photos or imagery will ever be able to communicate the forms and surface development. Seeing and touching are how humans are wired. Photos are great, but no substitute.
    That's one lesson I've learned as a car designer for the past 50 yrs.;)

    And 2,000 times more expensive than a used Fiat Multipla. Or 25,000 times more expensive than a skateboard. Crazy world huh.

    I like the F50. If I had to choose between that and the Daytona, I’d take the Daytona. Come to think of it, I’d take the Daytona over any super Ferrari.
