    Ferrari revives a model name. . .




    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Too bad the original is vastly more beautiful than the abomination they're making now.

    I've said this before the new Corvette has a lot of Ferrari in it.

    Does not the new one look like an FF to you? BTW, the original is gorgeous from the A-pillar forward, but the aft end is kinda droopy for my taste.

    And I think the modern Corvette is overwrought.

    If corvet could lose some of the extra gills and bumps and bulges and smooth out the lines a little they could elevate above Pininfarina - so close

    Think of this Corvette with a hood scoop from the Ferrari california, the rear intakes from the Mclaren P1, loose all the chrome and badges and you get a super nice super car.

    Then again you could just get Alfa 4C or Lew's beautiful Lotus and chair and just stare at the beauty

    Saw this in San Clemente the other day





    See how that door flows into the rear intake - Dat's a Italiano

    Oh and edited to add the Alfa is about the same price as the Vette !!!

    I wish auto designers would hurry up and get past this phase of headlight design with the plastic lozenge over the lights. Not only is it the ugliest part of the car, these plastic covers quickly oxidize and make the whole car look older than a plastic window in a convertible.

    Same price to buy but probably more expensive to own.

    I thought that original in the OP was called a Berlina. Don't remember it called a Superfast.

    Oh the story behind the photo op. Renee and I were going to go to one of our favorite restaurants in San Clemente when we passed the McLaren in front. I decided to take a photo of it for a joke for my friends birthday and text him the photo and say I got you this for your birthday.

    The owner was sitting out front on the patio facing his car ( why wouldn't he ) He saw me admiring and Renee asked him if it was his car. He said yup. I told him how I was gonna sent a photo to my buddy as a joke. He said "Why don't you have your wife take a photo of you sitting inside it. That will really get him " He laughed got up and opened the door, I got in and the photo op was made. I should say they owner was super funny down to earth dude. BTW nice car and super plush comfortable interior - Not bad for a Million Dollar toy
