When my son and i saw a convertible coming the other way. We were trying to figure out what it was, it looked very narrow with nothing particularly striking about it apart from it was an odd looking convertible. To me it looked like a 2007 convertible Toyota Celica or similar (even though theres no such car).
I am ashamed to say as it was passing by i saw it was a Ferrari California
Now i have seen many parked up but not being driven on the road. Even as it was parallel with me i had to look very hard to identify it.
God there was zero road presence when that car is heading straight towards you. Its narrow and has no striking shape. Not like any other Ferraris modern or old. WTF, where's the wow factor in the California? A Ferrari should make you go wow thats unmistakably a Ferrari!
saying that, not even the 599 does that even though its a great car it does not shout FERRARI!. Now i am a Tifosi through and through and i love ferrari, but i just cant get my head around what happend today
Looking at the pictures of the new 458, i would say that Ferrari might have finally made a visual work of art to make you go wow again
Thank god this new car seems to be the one that breaks the boredom in the Pininfarina design studio. Large or small i personally think every Ferrari should be ENZO like striking.
I know there may be some who love the new California and thats there choice. But just take a moment to think about when you saw your first Testarossa, 3X8, 355,360s driving towards you
......a whole different ball game i say
Thought i would get that out in the open
