I know what Ferrari is doing!

Personally, I don't like the look of Ferrari's new cars. The 612 Scalietti isn't that great looking, and it gets worse with the 599 GTB. Don't even get me started on the Ferrari California. Ferrari decided to make a car that attracts to women, has a small V8 up front, and looks ugly. All of this coupled with rumors of hybrid drive trains and turbos has got me worried for sure.

Getting to the point. The last car Enzo Ferrari created was the godly Ferrari F40. The F40 has to go down as the greatest Ferrari or at least in the top 3. What Ferrari are trying to do is get Enzo rolling in his grave so much so, that he actually comes back to life, heads to the factory, busts some skulls, and secretly creates the worlds greatest cars.

Did you know Ferrari built a car that's so fast, you can buy it, but they won't let you have it

I was always under the impression that Enzo really could care less about Ferrari street cars just so long as they made money to pay for Ferrari racing.

And why are you not liking turbos when the F40 was a twin turbo V8?

the F40/50 and 355 are the best looking Ferrari's ever made.

Yeah I think the 599 looks great...except for the front. The grill makes it look funky. If they made the grill mesh-like, it would look better.

You're on dope man, I'll take any Ferrari anyone cares to give me and drive it proudly. They're all beautiful. It's like looking through the SI Swimsuit edition and being picky because one of them has split ends or something.

Best Ferrari ever, 512TR (2nd gen. Testarossa)

I agree the new ones don't look nearly as good as the older models. Last great looking Ferrari was the 575M

Theres a lot more to that story. The FXX program basically allows you to pay to become a Ferrari test driver. You buy the car but it is completely not street legal. With that purchase you get storage, maintanace and transportation. They bring the cars to the track, you go there and race it around, they use onboard telemetry and input from Felipe Massa, Kimi Raikkonen, and Michael Schumacher to improve the car. They modify them while in storage, and then hold another event. There were 33 built and they updated all of them heavily for 2008 and even jacked the HP from 800 to 860. They test out all their new technology on these cars. As well if you want to use it for a private track day, Ferrari will prep and transport your car to wherever you will be running it.

Only Ferrari can get people to pay millions of dollars to help them build better and faster cars!
