Don't know what to think about it.
It looks a bit weird indeed, especially the part where roof comes on when it is open. :ugh:
yea, I'll wait to see the real one before giving a definite opnion

It's innovative. Nice for the sunny sunshine of California and Florida!! But it's not a true Barchetta. An 'S' model yes and not even a Spyder. Nevertheless it's great for Ferrari to be able to expand the model line. :)

Looks okay. :-?
It has the 612 engine, right?

What is the official name?
575 Barchetta? / 575 SuperAmerica? / 575 America?

yep i looks more like some sort of GTS and not a true barchetta/spider
and beeing the fact that it's a glass roof is a bit strange aswell

also have you noticed the Cavallino on the trunk? they made a badge shape around it, that's pretty cool though

about the name, well i don't know, some thimes a year Barchetta, then America then Super America

whatever they do THEY CAN NOT TAKE SUPERAMERICA!!!!
that would be a disgrace to the 400 SuperAmerica

Ferrari Superamerica it looks like it is.

That is a neat roof arrangement, and the way it lies on the top of the bodywork when opened means it doesn't take-up all the boot space like most other drop-tops do. The lines of the car are very nice, but it would be great to see them get rid of the rear pillars & screen.

romours are they are basing the engine on a reworked 612 engine, wich on its own is based on the current 575 engine :roll:

The top will drop in 10 seconds flat and the car uses electrochromic glass to control the amount of light entering the cockpit. I am sure this is handy when you have a hot date and you want to have your privacy. Or, if you're one who flaunts, you can drop the top and lighten the glass. This car is based on the 550 Barchetta which I love and will most certainly become a modern classic. Also, it shows some resemblance to the new Zender roadster. I hope this car shows up at the Chicago auto show so I can get some pictures. I've got to jet, I can talk more later.

It does look better than those concept sort of pics with the oval plastic-looking things on the sides. It hasn't completley grown on me though.

As you guys have said, I don't know if it really deserves the Superamerica name...
