    Is that car going off-roading? It looks like it has 6" of wheel gap.

    Is this official picture or it's some CGI?

    I think it is official.

    I love everything but the headlights, which completely ruin the car for me.

    Each version is great in it's own right, but for its time, the 355 was the best. Clarkson said at the time it was the best production car. I just don't see this car being as great today as the 355 was in its time.

    Does this make sense?

    Your wish is my command:

    But it's still quite ugly:

    Particularly in the back.

    Good clip, but by Clarkson's logic, every new Ferrari is the best car ever.

    ahh yes, a new ferrari. i quite like the styling along the sides - looks like the rather brutish lines on the 430 have evolved to their logical conclusion. shame about the rear and those headlights, though.

    Jeremy Clarkson believe Ferrari is a scale down version of God, what do you expect? When F430 came out it did blow the competetion away though, we shall see how this one does its trick.

    P.S. Gallardo looks better in my opinion

    the numbers for this car do seem quite nice:

    560 hp
    0-60 3.4 seconds
    202 mph top speed
    17 mpg

    What's with the flares around the leading edges of the bonnet? They hit the nail on the head with the 355, 430 and 612, but I think they've missed the mark here (visually speaking).

    I have no doubt it will be scrotum-puckeringly fast though.
