    I'm rather mixed about this one. Doesn't quite look like a modern Ferrari for better or worse.

    I love it. Most elegant Ferrari in decades.

    It has hip bones - reminds me of one of my favorite designs, the C3. It doesn't look like a running shoe so I'm going with fantastic. :tup:

    I initially get more of an AM vibe..at least until you look closer. Maybe because the body is clean rather than a mess of conflicting lines like we're now used to with Ferrari. But...I do think its somewhat lovely. Sure is a hell of a lot more interesting than the Mclaren Flavor of the week...

    Part of me wishes the press release just said "twin turbo V8 with plenty enough power", and "0-60mph in faster than necessary" and "Top Speed: Fast. It's a Ferrari, man" if for nothing else than the sake of variety.

    Oh my... this is soooo much nicer than the 812. Like, in every single conceivable way. I know its not really supposed to be alike, but this is what ferrari's V12 flagships should look like. Sexy, and premium, not brash.

    Guess this is sort of what the Icona Monza would look like in a coupe.

    I'd argue that Ferrari's top model should look like an F1 car on the road, bright red and angular.

    However, this new car is undeniably top-notch in terms of looks.

    Looks more Aston than the new Vantage. Love it :tup: Problem is, Ferrari's lineup is getting more and more crowded. Seems like they're taking a leaf out of McLaren's books and to me more models will dilute the brand exclusivity (think Porsche with its bajillion 911s). Not that I'm in any position to buy their cars, so my opinion doesn't matter anyways :lol:

    It is a thing of beauty. Question is, will it tarmac it's own driveway?

    Call me crazy, but this Ferrari Roma looks like if Ferrari and Aston Martin had an offspring. This Ferrari has the profile of an Aston Martin while not brutally copying AM. I am not head-over-heels in love with it, but I do find it to be quite handsome even if it seems like an Italian Aston Martin.

    Did the Aston design person get hired by Ferrari?

    It's a great looking car, but definitely looks like Ferrari's take on an Aston.

    I am in love. It's elegant and classy. I'd probably have a hard time doing a long trip in it, as I'd be constantly stopping f̶o̶r̶ ̶f̶u̶e̶l̶ just to look at it.

    One of the very few Ferraris I really want to own, and honestly the more I think about it, the higher it goes in my list of favourite Ferraris.

    It's starting to grow on me. Hopefully we get some live photos/video soon.

    I have to wonder if the AM similarity stems largely from the silver paint. I think it would look a lot more like a Ferrari in yellow or red or blue. I see a little bit of 456GT and very slight amounts of 612.

    this is so much curvier and elegant. When i first saw this SP came to my mind first not Aston and the SP is in a league of its own

    It's an SP with a roof

    come to think of it, with more of a hatch rear this would be the perfect replacement for the Lusso

    So it's basically a Ferrari Portofino coupe, I'm not a huge of the interior, it shouldn't be a 2+2 because there is no room in the back seat for a full grown adult to sit comfortably. (Try sitting in the back of a Ferrari California T & get back to me.) Plus that might save weight.
