New Ferrari 599GTB

Link (fixed now)

So does this replace the 575M? Looks damned good, especially those pentagram wheels. They look especially damned.

Shite... autoweek seems to be down.

Try this one:

'nuther link

And then there's this asshole...

Re: New Ferrari 599GTB

The autoweek site isn't down, you just suck at linking.
That car is beautiful, and the article does state that it replaces the 575M.

Re: New Ferrari 599GTB

I love the classic long hood proportions. It almost has hints of the "Bangle butt" in the trunklid.

edit: It uses the same motor as the Enzo. Whoa.

And then there's this asshole...

I don't know why, but it makes me think of a DB9 with a SC430 rear?

Re: New Ferrari 599GTB

I see styling from the 575M, Aston, SC430 and the Viper style vent on the side.


I think I don't like the back all that much but the rest is nice.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Doesn't seem to do anything for me, I'm not sure the model but I like the silver one from Gone in 60 Seconds that Sphinx drives.
