    People are so annoying. If Ferrari launch a car that was like spaceship, they gonna tell that is 'too much', if they launch a clean car, with great lines, like we see in this poor picture, everyone say ' i'm so unimpressed'. In the end of the day, design always not enough for some people, always have to complain, it seems don't like cars in general.

    I must agree, but how silly are Ferrari to leave the car in what looks like an empty auditorium uncovered...

    ... a decision only rivaled in stupidity by their recent strategic qualifying decisions at the Monaco GP :(

    Who said anything about a Valkyrie?? All I stated is that with this initial poor photo the car looks unimpressive. At first glance it looks like a F8 from the profile.

    There was talk of it looking like a “spaceship”. This first photo doesn’t exactly look like a spaceship. Not in the least.

    I’m sure it will look better in real life but I don’t like it from the first photo.

    Most likely a rehearsal or purely for auditorium set up. It's quite difficult to set up an event for close to a thousand people and have it run smoothly.

    Chill. It’s the initial impression from a crappy photo.

    And your comment about people not liking cars is directed towards people who own multiple Ferrari’s and other brands.

    Don’t get your panties in a wad. I’m sure the official pics will present the car in better light. If it doesn’t, then it doesn’t.

    This looks like the J50 that was released for japan.

    But of the many elements that go into such an event, perhaps its best to not drop the ball on the most important element of all...

    the car has soft lines from the side. I think the original concept was with canopy style glass roof like the original laferrari concept and yet again they mimicked the glass roof concept by painted it black instead of putting a real glass roof..

    Fake this has got to be fake because this is a 458 with new head lights .

    The lines on a "New" design langue Ferrari will always be soft, remember the hard core versions coming down the line. Ferrari will never produce a car with hard lines from the jump, they'd lose too much money.

    I hope this is fake because this IS NOT 355 going to 360, or 430 going to 458.

    I hope this is not the car for the simple reason I reorganized my schedule tomorrow to enjoy the reveal of a car I will never buy!
    Ferrari are the masters of building suspense and drama. Even my wife is bugging me for updates on BB!
    Let the feeding frenzy begin. :D

    Don't agree.

    People say they are unimpressed because the car has been "sold" as a spaceship.

    Before Instagram delete, there was a comment that said somethink like “please respect the work of the ferrari team and remove this photo”, which makes me think it is the new car.

    That angle makes it very hard to gauge what the car actually looks like. Every car has angles that are worse than others, I think we should wait and see what surfaces tomorrow. I am actually amazed it took this long for this to surface.

    I think the hidden nature of everything actually leads to more expectation and disappointment because of the hype getting overdone by enthusiasts, we shall see.

    I think it looks cool. The big question is does it look $600k cool?

    The wheels In the leaked photo look too retro for my taste. I don’t care for the design at all. I hope there are some other options for wheels on the car.

    For me, sorry, not OK to post this pic - no respect for the work of Ferrari.

    I like the car, absolutely, well done Maranello!!!

    If that's it, then this picture is giving the impression of a pretty boring design. Its seems like just a mish-mash of all the other "458" platform cars we have seen.

    I got mixed feelings. It's a familiar shape we've been seeing for a decade. Not overly amused tbh

    What do you mean no respect? This will be public in less than 20 hours. Ferrari should
    Do a better job of security or maybe they like the picture being leaked- more publicity.

    Wonder why they haven't put CF wheels on it after we were told they were so superior at the Pista launch?

    IMO it’s disrespectful to leak the pic thinking of all the hard work from everyone in Maranello, especially when he or she signed an NDA thing I’m sure. That being said I don’t know why they couldn’t just take the car cover out of the frunk and use it lol

    I bet it’s the real car, and it’s not as futuristic/spaceship from the side profile as I would have hoped. But I’ll reserve full judgment for tomorrow to give Ferrari the full fair chance. The wheels in the prototype/mule shots looked way cooler, maybe they are on the Grigio car?
