    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] I am so getting my own GTZ Zagato if it comes with torpedos.

    [​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.
