    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

    I'll be glad if Ferrari come up with something different, practical and usable after all these years.

    The Ferrari California was a new direction that needs to be continued IMO.

    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

    I doubt I would get any info on the spider koko. Ferrari are masters at keeping new models under wraps until the last possible minute. I don't expect to get any info on that model until late summer. All I've been told for now is that it does have a folding hard top.

    I ordered a new 458 on Wednesday for April build along with another Cali for May build. I stuck to the same colour and spec for my 458 but added the carbon dash and JBL hifi which were unavailable first time round. I've given my next Cali a GTO inspired look so am keen to see that built

    Are you going to change your 458 to have the carbon dash and JBL only ?? Same color? same seats? same wheels? same everything else?

    Basically yes as I haven't seen another combination I prefer. I've only had the car for 6 months and simply changing it because my dealer offered to swap it for a new one at no cost to me. I get a newer car with any improvements the factory have made beneath the skin and also kitted with all the options I originally wanted.

    I don't want to go for a change in colour/spec combination which I may end up liking less when it arrives. I did briefly consider the three layer yellow but it will be 15 months or so  before I change it for the 458 spyder and by then I think the yellow will be played out as a "fashion" colour. It will also add nothing to the 2nd hand value so spending £13k on it is just throwing money away and potentially making the car a harder sell as yellow has limited appeal.

    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

     It`s a radical change from 612, but in real it will look better!!... i hope...


    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

     Judging by these pics 


    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

    looks like a panamera that's been rar-ended by a truck

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

    Well im in love with it, it's got so much character. Somehow they managed a unique front using 458 ideas. Well done. This thing is a beauty. Of course performance wise it will rock

    Amazing Specs - This "GT" is more powerful than the 599GTO...I wonder how fast it laps Fiorano...

     At least i'm not the only one who likes it. 

    I'm not sure what it is but something about it reminds me of an Alfa. I can't put my finger on which one - perhaps the 159 estate.

    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

    Id rather have a 986 Boxster. The design itself is ugly and I dont think seeing it in person will make a difference, but we all have different taste. They should have just made a 4 door, but probably chose not to because they couuld not design anything better than the Panamera.


    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

     The renderings in Red look quite a bit better than the photos of the grey car, which looks somewhat bulbous. Will wait to see more, but I like the idea.

    I don't like it. It's like a cross between a BMW Z3 Coupe and an undertaker's hearse.

    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

    ISUK:
    The concept of a two door, four wheel drive, four seat luxury coupe was dreamt up 45 years ago by British manufacturer Jensen with their Interceptor FF model. It seems Ferrari have even adopted the same name for this new model.

    Well, back then the FF stood for "Ferguson Formula".

    I guess that in the case of this car the second "F" stands for "Freak". Smiley

    And the first doesn't stand for "Ferrari. " Smiley

    Amazing replacement for the 612. Everyone should wait to see one in real before judging too harshly. The price might be astronomical though.

    It's a Ferrari so that's a given Smiley

    Since when Chris Bangle works for Ferrari ??? Smiley


    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

     Finally a Ferrari that you can drive to your mountain resort in the winter and bring your skis as well. Must say I really like it!  

    Reminds me of the Alfa Brera..

    No it's not! The GTO produces 670 CV, the FF 660 CV! The power to weight ratio of the FF stands at 2.7 kg/CV, whereas the much lighter 458 has 2.42 and thus is more accelerative! Great numbers for a GT car but still not on a par with Ferrari's supsersports models.

    FERRARI RULES!!!

    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

    Not an exotic, but very beautiful car indeed, this thing life must be amazing to look at.

    But let me just say that I miss alot the 4 round shaped rear tail lights on the new models (F355 comes to my mind), it really gives a genuine Ferrari look, but nowadays they all come with only 2 tail lights.

    Re: Ferrari estate breaks with tradition

    I didn't manage to get out of the trip so l'll see the car on Thursday. Hopefully it will look much better in the metal. I'll probably end up eating my words and come back saying it's great.

     Look forward to your report. I suspect this is going to be a very colour choice sensitive model.

    I agree with you 100% on the color thing.
