    I've seen the same thing. I personally love the design.

    Yeah as far as the cab's go, the t is the sleekest for sure. Coupes on the other hand - I think the earlier cars look better.

    100%. The 430 looks like a 360 that someone awkwardly duct-taped Enzo styling bits to without changing the rest. It has absolutely no continuity of design and doesn't work at all.

    Look up "bulbous" in the dictionary and there's a picture of the 599. To make matters worse, look at where the V12 design was it before with the gorgeous 550 and where it went after to the aggressive sleekness of the 812. The 599 is the odd ugly stain in between.

    For such a beautiful car and shape, why does the new Roma have such an ugly front grill?

    I think that we need three categories:
    1) Coachbuilt cars in "as delivered" configuration(the early cars, some of them incredibly awkward)
    2) Series production cars(recent cars from the Tailor Made program included)
    3) Unsanctioned re-bodies(the Chinetti cars could sweep the category, 3Z etc. one of my personal favorites is below)

    I was going to throw in the 456 but see someone beat me to it. About as exciting to look at as road kill !!
    Disagree about the 360 though. It was the flip up light brigade of the 80’s n 90’s that drifted away from the classic lines of the original Ferrari. To me Montezemolo brought that back in the 360. Beautiful simple flowing lines like a sexy lady. Also brought back build quality as well.
    For me the 355 is WAY over rated as a Ferrari

    I like the 456, especially considering it should be compared to other 2+2s. The one big mistake I think they made is connecting the taillight pairs into one unit instead of doing it like the 550/360 though.

    Mine would be the 612, the FF and the Lusso, all now history but I fear that the forthcoming SUV is going to be a dog. I think the 812 is not an improvement on the F12, they shouldn't have messed with it. Looking for a 5th, got to be the Mondial.

    I've seen the SF90 on the road around Maranello and it has the most amazing road presence, accentuated by its very low height.

    LOL, love it. Hope I didn't touch a nerve but I did enjoy the rebut. I still think the 456 is fat chick at 4:00AM after last call...

    The "bread box" Ferrari has to be the ugliest Ferrari ever.

    Coincidentally, a week ago I was invited to a car brunch, and someone said my 308GTBi was “the ugliest ferrari ever made”, adding “looks just like a Fiero”.
    I had a 400i briefly (a low km neglected barnfind actualy), not beautiful but not sure I can say ugly to it.

    Yes, speaking as the current owner, I have to confirm this winner of the most hideous contest. The chassis (originally sold to Leslie Hawthorn of the TT garage in Farnham straight from the London show stand) was bodied, for a client by, Abbott who are better known for Bentleys. The car is now bodied in a Touring Barchetta style and was raced by the late Peter Giddings before returning to the UK a number of years back.
