Highly tuned in terms of aerodynamics, without being as attractive as a slap in the face with a cod.

Trying to use "aerodynamics" as an excuse for ugliness is poor. A good aerodynamic team will be able to create a shape that performs well, yet looks good.

Any technical expertise Ferrari might have is out done by their amazing ability to make each new car uglier than the last...

Ugliness and beauty are both only opinions.

how worse can it be :S ..... i guess this is in the range of the F50 GT.
IF i had the money, i would buy like 11 second hand 360's or some other Ferrari's which are built before the 612 scaglietti.

I think that the Ferrari people WANTED the Enzo to be different. They wanted the controversy over their new car. I think that the designers are highly capable of understanding what direction they should take. So they followed Ferrari's orders and created something controversial. Even if it lookes like a LADA it would sell like pancakes.

By the way 800 bhp from the 6200cc motor is not too much. it's 125 bhp per litre(Same more or less as the 360 CS) It's great to have 800 bhp, but it's not like it's a world first.

Well the 360 CS has a specific output of 118,5bhp/litre whereas the FXX has a specific otuput of 127,7bhp/litre, it may not seem like a very a big increase but I suppose that at that level it must be quite an achievement.

I really dont see the problem. its not like you are going to see this on the street like a normal enzo. In fact I dont think any of us are ever going to see these cars in person.
