Thats a beautiful manettino, I'd really wish to see it live in India. Already saw F430 very recently. Any inputs / leads towards who might've ordered one (If any), or Is there a piece en-route to India

Ferrari has only released pictures of the car. The official unveiling is at the Frankfurt Motor show in September. Only then will Ferrari take orders.

Default Ferrari 458 Italia - Caught In Real Life

Ferrari 458 Italia - caught in real life - Top Speed
Even if the F430 replacement has only been seen on paper since the Italian automaker revealed the official information about the 458 Italia, we are still waiting to catch a glimpse of the future Ferrari in real life. Although this isnít an unobstructed view, it is still quite an impressive sight covered in camouflage as the member of the Ferrari Chat Forum found out firsthand.

Default Ferrari 458 Italia Spied In Yellow

Ferrari 458 Italia spied in yellow - Top Speed
The latest edition to Ferrariís future lineup is the F-430 replacing 458 Italia has been spotted in the flesh again, and this time itís yellow. This lucky photographer caught an excellent shot of the 458ís rear end. From the image we can see that there will be two large openings just inside of each taillight, most likely for cooling the high revving V8, two large ducts to channel air underneath the car and easily out the back. However the most interesting aspect of the photograph are the Italiaís trio of tailpipes. The question is, what is the middle tip for, could it be an exit for a turbocharger waste gate like on the F40 super car, or is it just a faux piece meant to throw off speculators who are fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the preproduction vehicle.

I'm sorry, but YUCK. (or i guess i should say, SO DISSAPOINTING!)

Give us something new Ferrari!


Their current design philosophy seems to be something like this :

360 <-----------------"ferrari spectrum"----------------> Enzo
(Ugly blobish sportscar) ................................. (Sharper but uglier desirable car)


So, lets start with the 360, and then keep making it more and more and more and more like the enzo with every version...!

...atleast until its this freakish mix (which we shall call the 458) and then who knows what will come next.

cya

PS - I'm a huge ferrari fan. Really.

Probably the new co-owner (whoever comes) once Pinifarina sells the % on-offer, will see new designs coming in the market. Personally, I believe 360 and 430 to be really good. Enzo, I would agree with Rehan.

The rear looked better in pictures...but here in the spy pic, it's looking all disproportionate! The F430 has one of the best rears.

The rear looks odd in real life but not bad. But they dont make them like the 355 anymore.

They sure know what people like best about their cars! The engine noise! They're playing it up as much as they can.

The interiors are one of the best i have seen in a Ferrari! Beautifully crafted. The steering looks superb! btw i don't see a speedometer there! does the LCD screen beside the tacho change into a speedo or what?
