    The F430 was my favorite Ferrari, but I like this one more, the styling is very nice and modern :)
    I like a car based on how it sounds so lets see how this one does.

    ps. thanks for the new desktop ;)

    Very nice, though the mule was with F430 Scuderia like front end, and I think that it would fit better. Anyway, most important is how it performs :p

    Ferrari really went downhill after the 550 and 360 came out, that was by far their best looking era although the california's front section is great.

    0-62 in less than 3.4 sec, Ferrari claimed. :D

    Personally, I'm not really feeling the Califonia, the front looks too much like the 599/612, not aggressive enough.

    if you look closely you will find thatsome parts of the 458 have simular looking designs and details of their past cars like the enzo and 360/430.

    Like the rear end looks simular to the enzo. From teh side view the windows look simular to the 360/430 windows. And there is other minor details hidden to.

    I like it, its unique like every Ferrari. The more i look at it the more i like it, it looks all futuristic. I agree that it should have a more agressive front end. I still think that they should bring back a 250 GTO style car for a replacement of the 599.

    That's what I meant. The lights styling is awesome, but that bumper is from different neighborhood. As I said, IMPO F430 Scuderia's bumper would fit much better to the whole design, not only the front end. Maybe they leave some room for a future facelift and the Scuderia version :p Great piece of art nonetheless...

    ...and even better machinery :D

    Very nice looking car, futuristic and the back end is fantastic. Three pipes is different. I am interested to see what the interior looks like.

    My favorite Ferrari has always been the F355, only time will tell if this will replace it. ;)
