The california is dope, i saw it racing around the ferrari track in maranello. And all around modena these things were driving around.....keep in mind this was in June. ANYWAYS..... i think its the shit, the tailpipes don't look half bad either, not to mention its sounds WAYY better than an is-f. But trust me, its a much better looking car in person, everybody seems to hate it now, give it a year, people will be going ape shit over it and posting in the spotted thread on the daily.

This is sad.

This is a prime example of selling out. Yes the car is quick but it takes away from the whole 'special' element of it.

The reason cars like Zonda, Koenigsegg, Ascari, and others have grown in popularity is because they are taking the place of what Ferrari and Lambo used to be.

Porsche is a sell out making an SUV and now this ugly 4 door car. Lambo is much better but they have still softened up making their cars appeal to a wider audience.

Ferrari needs to make money and I understand that. From a business point of view and looking at profits, this is likely to be a slam dunk for them.

For a real enthusiast though, cost aside, you want something that's different. You want something that is a car for a true lover of the car and heritage. This car is for posh rich kids trying to look cool or for old fat guys to lure girls to suck their cocks.

Not to rant but many of the car companies seem to be going this direction and the ones that do offer the hard core wild impractical enthusiast element are a dying breed.

I'd much rather pick the SL over this car. This is going to take posure to a whole new level.

It is a pretty nice car, but definitely not justified for the price.

I don't know why everyone is complaining. Not as exotic as others, but it stil haul's ass with alot of creature comforts. I'll still take a 599 anyday though

I like it, and the automatic hardtop convertible part is pretty sweet.
