    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Is this going to be a production car or is this a concept? Looks like Ferrari is getting into the retro craze too.

    It's a one-off, custom built for the gentleman in the photo.

    It's a very cool car. It harkens back to the 250 Zagato, which was spectacular.

    Is there a functional purpose to the two holes in the front of the car? Are they to cool the brakes? I think they ruin the flow of the front, it has a nice round curve then is interrupted sharply by the hard edge of the circle.

    I like it. Has a lot of cues from the 250 GTO, also. Not a bad inspiration.

    They are for the torpedoes. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What the hell is Ferrari thinking these days? This looks like a 612, which IMO is terribly bland, with bigger wheel arches. I love the colour combo and two-tone paint but man that is ugly...to each is own...

    Brake cooling ducts makes the most sense, but I don't know for sure.

    I finally worked out what bothered me about the design; the hindquarters. The rear wheelwell is bulging too much. Make that more subtle and the thing would be just smashing.

    Holy Shit. And, the first thing that caught my eye was not a Ferrari, but the Alfa Tipo 33, god I love that car...

    mother of god, that's a lot of ferraris

    wonder if that guy will be my friend

    google results list him only as a "prominent historical ferrari collector"

    some people collect stamps. wonder what kind of day job you'd need to collect historical ferraris
