Exactly my thoughts when I saw the pic

Not bad but like GTO said will take some time getting used to but I guess it will grow on with time

The front looks a bit better than the 360 IMO.

The rear....well i dont like the fact that it has inherited the Enzo taillights....

Also, check out this thread for pics of the "new 575M" aka the 2006 Ferrari 600 Imola

I really hope it kicks some strong b*** on the track. Every comparision that I have read, the 360 ran out of breath before the Lamborghini Gallardo even started accelerating!

If i were Ferrari i would really worry about only one car more than the DB9, the Ford GT or the Gallardo...


... the 997 911 turbo.

Rumours are agog of it gonna have a V8 and a bhp figure of close to 500. Its tough to say at this stage since the turbo will take sometime to come after the 997 911 carrera is out, but i expect it to head to the top of the table. Frankly, the current gen of cars from the 996, the ones mentioned before and the 360 are very good. Infact they all are very strong contenders for best budget supercar with very lil seperating the five. Can Ferrari head to the top of this table? I'll wait for them to do it.

OK Now IMO this just looks ugly. I HATE those ugly front air intakes. The worst part is the fact that this bears too much resemblance to the 360 when this is supposed to be a completely new car!! This is to be the Ferrari 430 Modena with a 4.3 liter engine as most of you must've guessed. And also these images aren't PS'ed but actually are the real deal. This was out in mexico for Press Shoots.
Now for the quotes as a I pointed out this isn't a facelift but a completely new car.
Secondly that is NOT the 575M replacement but actually is just the 612 Scaglietti. You can come to know from the headlight rear-lights and the side profile of the car with the kindof oval shaped 'dents'.

Uhhh.... * no


To quote from the article-
"As a first prototype, the new car is cunningly hidden under a cut-and-shut 612 Scaglietti body that has been shortened between the A and B-pillars by 6 inches. It takes a good look to spot the giveaway clues - the shorter doors, the bulged door panels, the arch of the side windows, and the widened front end."

any1 seen te top gear tonight??

the 360 and the 911 3 RS posted the same track timing in the race
the tractio control in the 911 was amazing .

On the drag track the 911 was slower by just 0.1 or 0.2 specs
preety impressive for a 381 hp car against 430 hp car

and the gt3 is 50000 pounds cheaper than the variant of the ferrari 360( Actually tis variant is somewhat 30000 pounds expensive than the regular 360)..
I saw the show midway..so dont kow whats the variant called.

Any1 seen the entire show throw more light pl.

Hi guys,

Check this article out : Exclusive preview of the upcoming F430 coupé to dealer representatives at Maranello Factory

Photographs taken by an anonymous individual with a concealed camera phone
purport to show close-up details of the 360 Modena successor.

Man, that car is so Enzo from the rear end. Good thing or bad...I cant decide yet. Front end looks meaty though

The front styling is appealing for sure....... but cant say the same about the rear....... looks way too much like the enzo as everyone keeps saying in this thread!

An increased front and rear track width should definitely make the so much more stunning when seen in person!
