Looks a lot like Jim Glickenhaus' P4/5 one-off Enzo. I assume this is also by Pininfarina, so in essence they've repeated themselves. Still, looks good.

What a gorgeous design. It is definately the best looking Ferrari to have come out in recent years. Never really liked the California but this is stunning. And the performance will be mind blowing 570 BHP 203mph.

This is going to give the LP560 sleepless nights.

Can one order it still with a gated manual? Even 6 would do, heck even 5 would do!! Actually five plus reverse is better as you get a double HH gate

I don't get it with all these multiple gears. Who needs so many? Half the time I will forget which one I am in (I do all the time on my VFR)

Ferrari keep it pure and simple. Nice V8's with a simple 5 or 6 speed max.

I am driving a Jeep with a three speed and believe me in city traffic its the most you will ever need.

Not really impressed. Look at that honda interior, fugly rear and other california influences.

Though i am very impressed by some aspects of the car. The F430 figures said that it hit 62 MPH in 4.0 seconds but magazines had claimed figures like 3.5. If the F458 claims 3.4 the i would presume the actual figures around 3 seconds which is very impressive. The 7 speed, 570BHP and other new technologies are a nice step forward too. the smart spoilers remind me of the 250. I just hope they lose those christmas lights and the finished product looks more elegant. F430 (especially spyder) is a gorgeous car.
The side profile is stunning though!

The crew from Maranello has let loose two new videos of its mid-engined hypercar. The first vid gives us an early glimpse of the suitably high-tech view from the driver's seat, but both new clips may offer something even better: the glorious sound of Ferrari's latest mid-mounted 4.5-liter V8 engine running up and down the ratios of its seven-speed dual clutch gearbox.
Click on the link to watch the videos... and be sure to turn up those speakers!

As the Americans say, this is truly "SICKKKKKKKKKKK"!!

It's got the perfect supercar styling, I reckon it might just bring the charisma of the F355 in the flesh.
