That front-back proportion is caused by the packaging of a mid-engined car. Look at all of them from the top, and they have that short front, long back look. Some (Lamborghinis) are more exaggerated, but that's inherent to that kind of packaging. The thing that stands out to my eye is the aerodynamic detailing that's gone into the car. For example, the dual tunnels under the car for its ground effects are something F. has done since the 360.

I would guess that its weight distribution is closer to 40/60, with more weight in the back. BTW, do you know the people who are driving a 612 Scaglietti, 16M Scuderia, the McLaren F1, and a Bertone Mantide across the country from New York to Monterey? I'm guessing they're going to be at Pebble Beach in a couple of weeks. http://bigheaddennis.blogspot.com/
