It looks like a Thunderbird from behind, no dual rearlights. Ferrari 599 GTB? Are they trying to make this car a classic with the GTB name? Should have been named 600 Imola.

Ferrari messed up big time this time around. The got the rear wrong, the rims are shit, even the name is messed up (why not 600 instead of 599?). The front is alright but feels too short and stubby at the back.

I wish Ferrari gets low sales on this but then again, there will always be those rich snobs who will buy this garbage just because it's got the Ferrari badge but know shit about Ferrari or cars in general.

This is just a car you have to get used to the design. I'm sure I am gonna like it, although it looks a bit non-Ferrari-ish to me...

This car better perform like a beast on steroids to compensate for the uglyness.

Was noticing how much the 599 looks like th GG50 Concept, wonder if Guigiaro saw the 599 previous to his GG design or did Ferrari like the GG and copy some of it?

Could the GG50 be the next 612 design???

Ferrari without a doubt took inspiration from that concept. Proportions and overall silhouette are very similar.

Ferrari calls it the 599 GTB, so we better call it 599 GTB too
