    while I agree, that any moving body through a fluid suffers drag, small differences of magnitude with modern cars of similar Cd and frontal area
    it basically cancels in any comparison of similar speeds (A and Cd are linear with speed, velocity by the square)
    drag force = 1/2 x density x A x Cd x V^2
    my car has a Cd x A ~ 8 sq ft
    but at 30 mph (44 ft/sec) V^2 is 2000 (vs 8 or say a car with 20% higher 10), Cd x A means little in the overall magnitude of losses
    even less when rolling resistance, driveline losses and accel.

    actually it isn't
    both mean nothing without context, HP needs more 'context' to tell you anything about the system

    Saw a Ferrari FF in the flesh for the first time yesterday, I don't get the hate, it looks great IRL.


    It needs better wheels though, just like the California.

    Cant agree with this. That car is ugly just like that BMW Z coupe is.

    Ferrari dont get enough shit for some of their ugly designs over the years. The 400, Mondial, 308 gt4, the F50 is hopeless.
