I hated the 360 when I first saw it then it quickly grew on me, it has a great profile and aggressive stance. Never liked the 430, love the Scud. The 360 pretty much marked the end of Ferrari's looking Italian.

Amazing how popular the 355 still is in looks...but to me it looks really old and dated now.

I have always though that the 355 was good looking in a middle-of-the-road kinda way, not the triumph of post-1980 Italian design many people seem to make it out as.

I have never liked the 360 much. I think the 430 is a handsome car, but critically not a pretty one. Better looking than many recent and current Ferraris. (No big achievement )

The only flaw with the F355 is the rear spoiler dealie and the area around the lights.

Otherwise, it is pretty much perfect.

I personally think that the F355 is the best looking of the Dinos, this side of a 206/246 GT.

I like the simplicity and the understatement. And of course it's a beauty.

IMO the Enzo was the first Ferrari to show the current styling trends. The 360 shared styling with the 550/575 and the 456. All their replacements have looked like the Enzo.

Modena
it would be the case if a mod could change the name of the thread to "Ferrari F142 spy shots" though, or people would think this is the replacement of the Enzo, while, as I repeated to the point of being sick of it, it's the F430 replacement, using a version of the California's engine, maybe still with a 4.7 liter displacement, and no turbo. maybe a sort of Kers system, but I'm not sure about that.

some other pics.

Modena
and some more

btw, thr styling should be quite different from the one of the F430.
308/328 similar look, same chassis, different mechanics
348/F355 similar look, same chassis, different mechanics
360/F430 similar look (less), same chassis, different mechanics

with the mechanics of the 328 and 348 being quite similar, as for the F355 and 360, and so for the F430 and the upcoming 470 (?).

The 360 I think is great too; don't you? F430 and 348 are a step down from the aforementioned three I believe.

The 360 is fine, but third to the 355 and 206/246. The 348 suffers from Testarossaitis and F430 from Enzoitis.

I like the 'rossa and yes the F430's main flaw in my eyes is the rear deck with the can lights. If it had the behind of a 360 it'd be great. I wish in fact that the 355 had the 360's rear. Then it'd be perfect basically. (In my room I have a wood poster of a F430 and F355, I should get the 246 GT and 360 as well, maybe even the 348 too.

I actually like the small spoiler in the back of the F355, it flows well with the lines of the car. The flat end of the 360 would probably look too plain on the F355.

The only thing I don't like on the F355 are the exhausts, which are too small and centered for my liking.

agree on the spoiler thing, I'm fine with the exhaust.
I think the F355 it's the best looking Ferrari since...I don't know.
I like the 288 GTO, or even the original 308, but the style changed so much in those years, those aren't really comparable to an F355, but I would take the latter (over a 308, not a GTO, I guess).
