Not bad but wish Ferrari would go back to their roots and stop spoiling their cars with to much nannying technology!!
Well if you have the required talent, or merely want to try an iron-lung for size, then there is a switch on the steering wheel, that will give nanny the rest of the day off. :thumbs:

Not for me.....uncool IMHO

Ferrari used to produce exclusive cars that had a certain cache, this unfortunately is not one of them.....

its only a matter of time before a footballer turns up in one......and that makes it serious uncool then

Catching fire is a proud tradition amongst Italian cars.

Too true, i had a 166 that caught fire, didn't stop me buying another.

Also the best sportscar in the world by pretty much every journo thats driven one so its not just a wide boys car.

Seriously cool.

Saw one in a small village today with an Austrian plate on the dashboard and nothing on the back.... I suppose there is a reason for that!? :)Guy parked in the only space free - a space for the handicapped! He would. Could keep an eye on it I suppose from the terrace.
Its beautiful. Really moving to see it for real. The size of the front discs and calipers :wow: The size of the tyres:wow: and everything else:thumbs: The precision engineering and quality workmanship just oozes out of it. Nothing like the older Ferraris. We see quite alot of them here during the summer and they all just look like big sports cars with a prancing horse on the back that say "I have money". This though was literally gob stopping. Even parked, its looks just right from every angle and fast and the quality of eberything gone into making it.... The engineering is evident and difficult to describe. Its so bloody low though. The roof must have been at my hip level or even lower!
Having seen one being driven hard on a track its quite amazing to see one being driven on B roads and stop for a worky's lunch at the local pub.
