    More power and torque than the LF-A(552hp, 354lb-ft) from a smaller engine. Weight is very close, too. Transmission may just help it top the LF-A in performance. Is the exclusivity worth another $150k+, and waiting at least another year(LF-A is MY 2011)? :dunno:

    The styling in general still hasn't grown on me. It's cool that it's faster, though. :dunno:

    with today's technology and being a Ferrari, you would think they wouldn't put idiot lights on the cluster. :rofl:

    Side profile is HOT!

    It's such a drastic departure. Really is like going from the 360->430...although I didn't take issue with the 430. I don't know what it is. :dunno:

    With a chip and exhaust, you could walk the 458.

    They're really trying to figure out how to cut down on weight and overall size. The 458 shows that they've made some progress, but they may want to work out a few more tricks.

    I also wonder how they'll handle topping a car named after the founder. As a marketing person, I think that will be a bit of a nightmare to deal with.

    they'll make 1 when ferrari turns 70 I guess.. hence F40/50/60 (Enzo).

    So most likely 2015-17
