    I hate to burst your bubble, but the 360 was the last Ferrari (IMO) that I have owned that had the "right" steering. They have gotten faster/lighter in the 430 and 458. The feel however is virtually gone vs the old cars.

    The perforated 'horseshoe' on the rear deck is an indication of the extra cooling Ferrari needs for this BB?
    It seems to have a bit of the P80/C look to the rear deck...

    Looks more like the satellite antenna. Too small IMHO to be a roof scoop.

    Thanks for sharing it with us. I think the squared/rectangular tail lights are going to look pretty good on the BB.

    NO farther back over the area parallel with the rear tire there is a central raised area above the engine. It is not as noticeable in the second picture from a higher angle.

    I think this car could take many lines from the 250 LeMans. Language from Ferrari Sport Prototypes like the 330 P3 or similar... a little bit of the operation that was carried out with the recent one-off P80/C

    Not a roof scoop as the second picture shows the area collapsed without wind flow. Looks like just a panel to get air into and around the engine area in that thick overcoat. It does have the usual blown rear scoop with third brake light at the edge. Lower rear looks similar to Pista treatment. The other pictures shows the full detail of the rear brake assemblies for those knowledgeable of the iterations. Center rear is extended presumably allowing room for the rear electric motor. Hope it does not try to take 'styling queues' from the P3. This is all new platform and should carry unique design not copies of prior coach designers. IMO P3 is too sacred.

    I agree about 330. I've made reference to that more than once:
