New Ferrari - 29th Feb

Post by Standaman94 on Fri 24 Feb 2012 - 22:02

"Save the date" they keep saying. I have, now just lemme see the car!





Ferrari have made quite the big deal about this. TopGear seem to think it's the replacement for the 599.
It's a V12, it's got about 700 horses in it, and it's lighter than the 599, so it's going to be faster. And if what they're saying is true, it's going to be fantastic.
Unfortunately, the "technical innovation" they say is probably going to be, yet again and as always, a thick load of electrical gizmos so keep the power on the ground; so it's probably not going to be a raw powerhouse like Ferrari's in the past have been. More like a trained circus bear.

Either way, we'll see... on the 29th. That's next Wednesday.

A leaked image of the new 599, looks a lot like the Ferrari FF!

That does look a lot like the Ferarri FF but does not seem to be as awkward as the FF. The lack of the "hatchback"ish look does wonders.

Ohhh myyyyy...



That is impressive! It's like the 599 crossed with the FF. But that begs the question... Will it be 4WD??

RWD. I wish they would take more design cues from the 458 than from the FF.

I don't think Ferrari would have wanted another car that looked like the 458. The 599 looked nothing like the F430, so obviously they want their front engine V12s to have something different about them.

Personally, I quite like it. But they've gone back to the F430s problem with it's massive grinning front grill. It looks like The Joker.

There's some interesting design flow going on there. I like how the body seems to flow from the edge of the boot down into the diffuser.
Front end is.... ok. 458 light cluster with what looks like the grill form the FF. I like the treatment on the skirting wrapping round to the wheel arches. Nice and angular. Not hugely 'Ferrari' but works all the same.
