    That's a cool photochop... a 360 with a 550 nose and an Enzo rear.
    I'd have used a 575 nose. ;)

    575 lights a fug ugly though.

    I love the back look, but why return to a 'dummy' grill. The current F360 looks a lot more racey.

    Is it me or does the rear come off as a Porsche offering? (Bad Ferrari!! :p)

    That said, well done!

    Ha Ha! Nice photoshop! IMO, this is what the 360 should have looked like in the first place.

    Awesome. Maybe the vents can be extended a little along the doors to be less Porsche 997. Otherwise, great. Front end - much better!

    I lke it. Maybe you can add some air ducks by the rear windows kind of like the 355.

    I don't quite like the 575 grill but overall I like it.

    We really do need Heiko to give us some input.

    I really doubt Heiko can share much, from what I hear posting the picture will get the guy who took the picture in trouble

    We don't need him to post the picture, just give us input on how close or far off this one is.

    Did a 550, 575, 360 and Enzo all gangbang a Carrera GT and some of each sperm made it to the egg?

    It has a little of all those in it.

    I like it. It looks more exotic than a 360 and looks better than the 360 replacement pictures everybody's been posting.

    Yeah, but being a photoshopped image, I don't think it's replacing anything. :) I like it too.

    I agree, that looks cool to me, sure some improvements could be made but overall that would be a GREAT 360 replacement. Interested in the engine specs. You chopped it yourself?

    That's pretty sharp...Lose the 550 grill, tweak the lights to be more Enzo vertical. Otherwise that's not bad at all.

    Laughable that an amateur message board hack can create a design that's likely better than what Ferrari's own people will likely deliver. What does that say about that company and Luca's leadership? Hmm?

    The nose is 100X better than the nose of the 360. However, this nose would not let enough air under the car for the underbody aerodynamics to operate properly.

    The rear vents are ok-ish, but the 360 was designed NOT to need as much airflow into the engine bay as the F348/F355. So, this detail is obvious fake.

    Mitch,

    I'm not taking issue with your comment, but could you explain more about "not enough air under the car". I understand the low-pressure area at the rear of the car, but why wouldn't you want to keep airflow under the car to an absolute minimum to create even lower pressure. Wouldn't forcing air under the nose of the car create lift at the front?
