Does anyone think this car relates to anything Ferrari has done in the past?

That's was I was thinkingI find the creases and detailing along the sides fussy and overstyled - a bit in the same vein as the creases on the flanks of the BMW Z4
Archie, I totally agree on your view. It's interesting for myself to realize the the shape is growing already to myself after the rather "Toyota" like initial front picture 2 weeks ago. But as other's already mentioned, this was the fact with many previous models and new shapes in the past. The car looks decent from the side in that iceblue.These are much better images than the previous ones, I think it looks better in blue rather than red too.
There is slight resemblance to the 599, but it looks more like a cross between an Aston's front end, a MB SL's roof and a TVR's rear end.
I quite like it now
Front mid-engine, so does that mean the engine is situated in front of the driver but behind the front axle?I am still fascinated that this is Ferrari's first front mid-engine car. Reminds me of the bad boy RX-7 that had a 50/50 weight distribution to front/rear because of this same setup.
Ah okay, thanks.Dmitri, indeed. Front-mid simply means what you said - up front but pushed back behind the front axle. Lots of front engine cars are going that direction these days for better weight distribution and vechile dynamics.
