Utterly gorgeous

And probably dreadfully uncool

Would that stop me buying one? (hypothetically)

Never

Undeniably attractive.

Brilliantly competent.

Hideously uncool Abu Dhabi mobile.

Expect the accompanying "gen-u-ine leather" iPad case and mobile phone holder any day soon

I can almost make a case for GT cars (as opposed to supercars) being cool. From the front and the side it is very handsome but the rear end has BGD issues and that dashboard and steering wheel is horribly fussy and a bit messy. And everyone will still think you're a **** if you drive one.

Uncool (but not seriously uncool like mid-engined ones are).

The mobile phone holder appears to be on the rear bumper?
Otherwise really good especially the ducting through the front wing . Best seen in real life to appreciate it.

Good point - front engined ones are slightly less uncool than the recent mid-engined efforts.

Unless of course it's the "Barbie's first Ferrari" California.

I really do like the F12 but being a new Ferrari it can't ever be cool.

definately better than that, the 458 looks more like a lambo wannabe at the front, and a stick insect with bug eyes at the back.

Its many things, but if you think you are going to look cool in that you are mistaken.

Don't know what to say about this. I don't like it but that doesn't mean it's not cool.

Perhaps it's cool just because of the badge it carries but I think the exterior styling is only so-so and the general appearance of the control panel could have come from any old thing.

On balance, uncool.

I'm beginning to worry about myself...this is another recent Fezza I find..... "interesting".

I like GT's too, there's a terrifically anachronistic throwback to the cross continental cruising playboy about it. Today, of course, he'd hop on a jet and be there quicker for buttons.

Nice, fast, expensive, exclusive but we all know it's uncool.
