    I'm a bit put off by the extensions of the lines throughout the body contours -- not that Ferraris are known for restraint but I think the car's appearance would be significanctly improved by dialing back the pronouncement of the vertical body lines.

    The 458 is very sexy and sleek. I like it's fresh styling.

    It looks like a track car, not a street car.

    It's a Ferrari. It SHOULD look like a track car.

    The more I look at it the more I like it. I still hate those lights though. Good thing I'm not in a position to buy one! [​IMG]







    [​IMG] aww, made myself sad...

    But with the super low clearance there's so many places it can't go. It pity the owner who lives in a neighborhood with speed bumps or speed humps (the big ones). Looks to me like a garage queen.

    Hopefully this means that 360 and 430 prices will drop somewhat heavily. 360 prices are already pretty low along with 355's.

    That is why Lamborghinis are better than Ferraris... in the city at least

    Huh? [​IMG]

    Gallardo and F430 are both about 4.5 inches ground clearance

    Meh... I don't like it. It's hook-nosed and has raised haunches.

    Saw the 458 at the Manhattan showroom today. I must admit it looks fantastic.

    Is this the Central Jersey dealer?

    My friend went too, from the crowd it looks like a different time.

    Just saw the 458 in black in Portland, OR. It's awesome.

    The 430 is still better looking. But of the current offerings, the 458 is by far the best. The California, in particular, needs to die.

    Saw a black one in Detroit when I was coming back from Toronto. The best looking car I've seen in person.
