You are in the Ferrari
What is this discussion about?
Ferrari 599, Coupe

What does everyone think of the new 599? Do you think it is the most beautiful ferrari ever? Too similar to the 612 Scaglietti? Speak your mind here...
Personally I am a little discouraged by the Mitsubishi Eclipse look. The dinky door handles and the overall lines, especially at the front.
#49 of 56 599 GTB Fiorano; Supercar Best Buy

I personally think the 599 GTB Fiorano is the single best deal in the exotic car market today. Think about it, and it's competition.
For a huge front engine Halo GT car, there's the McMerc SLR, which costs $455,000, while the GTB costs about $250,000 - $300,000. It's also faster.
If you wanted that engine in an Enzo, you pay about a million, but in the GTB, less than $300,000.
What about other 600 horsepower cars? Carrera GT was $444,000 and was a beast to handel.
The styling? I think it looks brilliant. The agressive front end with the powerfull bonnett. The flying buttresses and the rear diffuser are fabulous. The interior is bespoke, and there's a big boot. I wish it had 4 rear tail lights, but thats just my personal ferrari thing.
I LOVE that car, its my dream car.

I don't care for it. The 612 is the GT cruiser, and a great one. The F430 is the sports car. What Ferrari ought to have done was come up with another mid-engined V12 supercar.
The 599 does look a bit like the Eclipse, but heavier in the back. But IMO it doesn't serve much purpose, and it looks nondescript. There's an article in a current magazine featuring the new Maserati, and the designer (who did the 599 as well), admits that while the "599 is a bit challenging, the (new Maserati) is a classic beauty."
I miss the Boxer, actually. What an animal.
