Just a reminder of how realistic Ferrari claims and numbers really are: Pista numbers from Auto Motor Sport Test - you can draw your own conclusions:

Auto Motor und Sport Test

0-100 km/h: 2.8 s
0-200 km/h: 7.8 s
0-300 km/h: 21.7 s
400 m: 10.2 s (230 km/h)
Braking (100-0 km/h, cold brakes, warm tyres): 29,5 m
Tyres: Michelin PS Cup2 R
Weight: 1499 kg

2017 720s numbers for comparison: numbers are from actual tests:

0-100 km/h: 2.6 s
0-200 km/h: 7.1 s
0-300 km/h: 18.6 s
400 m: 9.7 s (147 mph)
Braking (100-0 km/h, cold brakes, warm tyres): 29,1 m

Weight: 1419 kg (Kerb Weight)

Current Cars:

2019: 720s MSO Atlantic Blue
2010: MB SLS coupe
1957: MB 300SL Roadster
1956: Porsche 356 Conv. A 1600S
+several other Audi Porsche and Mercedes cars

Those wheels belong in a 70s porno. Car looks unimpressive from the shot. I think I like the Mclaren GT better. Ok maybe not.

well certainly it does not look like a spaceship or sth. like a totally new design language, rather looks like some quiet conventional design - I imagine it to have 812sf like eye sockets and the back lights looks a bit like Z7 or Camaro ones on that shot ... you cannot really see the car very well from the shot however i am not really impressed like e.g..when I first saw the Pista or 720s leaked pictures or a bit shocked like with Senna, which I soon liked very much ... that thing just looks a bit fat around the back and not like it moved far from anything not previously seen with Ferrari ... think it will be a bit more challenging to sell if rumored price of 650-850k is true

Basically it's hybrid 488/F8... Ferrari's take on the 918 Spider, with turbos on the flat plane V8 and a more normal exhaust setup. The tech details will be interesting, i.e. if the front electric motors decouple beyond a certain speed, and how much output they choose for the gas engine. I get Ferrari's take on car interiors, but electrification of the drivetrain on a brand new model would be a great opportunity to update the screens and controls. And of course the big question is of course how much will it weigh? US curb weight of the 918 Spyder = 3600-3700 lbs, much over that and I'd say it 's a fail.

Hard to gauge price/value. On one hand it is crazy expensive compared to other supercars i.e. 720S, 488/F8, GT2RS, Performante etc. On the other, compared to the 918 Spyder, it might be a bargain. Despite being regular production, the cost will inherently limit how many are sold. At the end of the run might it almost as scarce as the 918.

the thing is weight ... per the AMS article Ferrari again did not deliver the promised weight figures for the Pista (article says Ferraris scale seems to be off by 90kg) the car there is one with all lightweight options plus the extremely expensive aftermarket by Ferrari cf rims (which certainly save another 15-20kg) still its 1499kg while a regular 720s measured by same magazine is 1424kg ... I believe in an instant that the new car its around 1850kg, even by having 1000hp its 500hp short of a Chiron which weights 1995kg which is no high df car and it should beat all its acceleration figures considerably ? Does not really ad up in my opinion ... at 1850kg it additionally cannot be a track car but more a luxury GT in the tradition of the front engine v12s and 1990is Testarossa

so a hybrid 458, everything else is just a facelift and a turbo engine. same old chassis

Kinda weird looking. Not a huge fan yet. Front end looks pretty good, and interior is modernized, but the rest I'm pretty underwhelmed by.

For $700K++ you would have thought they could come up with something better looking than new Corvette...
