Default NEW Ferrari 599 GTB SPIED!!!!

Hi Everyone,

To my knowledge, these are the first pics of the car where you can actually make out that it is a 599.

whats happened to ferrari, cant they design cars which fall inbetween their cheapest and most expensive...

till date the most beautiful ferrari is the F430 and then Enzo..the 612 or 599 shouldnt even fall in the ferrari badge..i much rather have an SUV ferrari..

These are the pics of the Test mule. May not be that the original car look like this. Sadly, Ferrari is going down the ladder in design.

The design is so cluttered with supid air vents and cuts and creases. It works on some BMW's but it never will on a Ferrari.

Ferraris are all about simple beauty without any emballishements. This ugly duckling is not deserving of the Prancing horse badge.

its like a mix of the 612 and the 575 with some other blends..
only thing which looks good is the V12 engine

Very much so. That light is distinctly a squeezed Vanquish front 'batti'.

Default Some More Info and Pics......

Hi All,

I think that the 612 and the new 575 replacement, the 599GTB look in a league of their own.

They dont compete in the same league as the sexy 430 or the sharp Enzo, but they do look apart and elegant, I Think!!

But still... if ever i buy a ferrari today, it'll be 430, without hesitation.

Only the engine block is carried on, not the exact same engine. The basic structure is same.
