IMO, the 458 is the prettiest car Ferrari has built in 35 years.

The only Ferrari I think is ugly is the Enzo.

some might argue that but ok.

the boxer, 308, 288, and f-40 were a whole lotta ok.

The Enzo was a car that grew on me. I'd own one if I could.
Everything from the 308 to the 430 is forgettable, styling-wise, IMO. However, the 599 is way better looking than the 612, so there is some hope that Ferrari styling will improve over the next 10 years.
A good friend of mine who collects cars is beginning to get into Ferrari collecting. He has a 360 Spyder, a 430 Scuderia and a 458 on order. I'm trying to steer him to the cars of the early 70's (Dino, 365GTC/4) but he ain't biting. Now he's trying to convince me to sell my Turbo and do the F car thing. Won't happen until I win the lottery and buy a 250 LM

I'm not saying I like all of them, it's just the Enzo that makes me say bleeeeh! The rest are either beautiful or "all right".

Quote from article: "In rare instances the heat shield could become deformed, bringing it too close to the exhaust system and igniting," a Ferrari spokesperson said.


Since when does an automotive designer use combustible materials for an exhaust heat shield? This sounds fishy.

They need to bring back a modernized version of the BBI.

I think

The California is the prettiest car. That thing is just beautiful. Great lines and the best front engine car out there.

Just my .02 cents.

My favorite is the 355 Spider with a Capristo muffler. I saw this video and OMG that sound is amazing! There is a Porsche in the video which makes it OK to be on the forum. Right? If I have my way, I will have one by the end of the year.

YouTube - Ferrari 355 capristo fly by #2, (5 other clips same car)
