sorry, but i have to post again because i hate this car and its "concept" so much.
if the person buying this car really wanted to buy a track day car where they could have telemetry and all kinds of adjustability they could buy a formula car (Renault, 3000, BMW, World Series, GP2, etc.) for less and there would be hundreds of other cars working on developing the package, not just 19.
This is all about bragging rights and money, nothing else.
It goes perfectly with their clobbering this year in the Championship.

Good point, Wouter, but it doesnt change my mind

Buying a Ferrari has never been a sensible action.

It could be, the wing things on the back must block the view from the regular mirror positions.

words cannot describe how ugly that is, what is ferrari playing at? suicidal designers or something. Sure it might be kind to the aerodynamics but PLEASE have some dignity! you're killing our eyes! They better not muck up the design for the F60 i tell u that.

i actually quite like it, and from the side it seems reminiscent of an F40
it could do without a few of the smaller details, and would be better in a darker colour

maybe it is a cover for the antenna, to send the telemetry to the pits.

if you look at the rear 3/4 shot, you can see that the rear window has been covered - looks like it's all 1 big firewall now.... http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/forum...hmentid=113121 - I guess that would explaing the camera pod that's been slapped on the roof...
