Why do you find that interesting? Maybe it's generating enough down force without one.

Curved floor and diffuser combination. F1 technology.

Rear wings/spoilers produce a lot of drag also along with down force.

Edit: Just checked out the official website. it does have a movable spoiler/air brake integrated in the body.

Edit 2: This page should be of interest to you.

Looks crazy enough to be the most powerful FERRARRIIIIII !!!

However the name should been inspired from various italian racing horses like a Tornese or Crevalcore.

Or may be " FIERA " (translates to WILD ANIMAL)

I see..
I would imagine generous use of ground effects as well in the floor. Nicely masked spoiler I must say.
Overall I find this a splendid successor to the enzo. Infact! This car makes the original enzo look like a bit of a kit car I dare say : P

EDIT: After having looked at a bunch of shots of this car at the Geneva show on the internet. I've changed my mind, This car looks a bit awkward from certain angles o.O

"La" as in THE. So its THE Ferrari by Ferrari! I'm sure they must have put some thought into it. Makes a little sense seeing that they cant do one better than naming the car after Enzo (since they already did that with their previous hypercar) and all other family members have had a model named after them.

About the car, Absolutely awesome!!

Nomenclature is a tad disappointing.

But why a digital tacho? The fun of a high revving machine is to see that needle climb upto 9000RPM!

9250 RPM to be exact my friend and that too from a V12 engine. Moreover after looking at this car, the Lamborghini Venano looks like it was designed by a mad man with a chain saw. Score 1 to Ferrari in this round.

Its epic with all the technology and looks rather nice. At first, I didn't like the front wing, the red on the spoiler. But, its growing on me. The TG UK pictures are very nice.

The dry weight of 1255 is amazing for a car with a KERS unit. And a lot of trickery with the movable vanes. Still cannot digest the name though! Ferrari should have done better. Maybe they wanted to leave some room for the Lambo to score somewhere.

I get what you're saying. A big analog tachometer would have looked good and felt great. They didn't do it maybe because that V12 is too fast for an analog instrument. I could be wrong though. Eagerly waiting for some nice reviews.
