All the more reason not to get distracted and focus on their jobs at Apple. The share price has been falling for weeks now and the economic crisis in Europe is not new. I'm glad Obama won but I don't think the two are wholly related.

Aston Martin, Jaguar or McLaren would be my preference.

I should have taken a pic of the dude, you'd see what I mean. Take note of the frame around the plate, that's a dealer in Florida.

what a silly statement. People can walk and chew gum at the same time. Especially executives of multi billion dollar corporations.

I like Jony Ive's Aston Martin better. Oh and his Bently too.

Plus, nothing sounds like a F-car motor wound up to 8K+. I've driven a few of both, on and off track, the Ferrari experience always made my spine tingle, the Lambos just didn't have the same impact (even silly HP TT Gallardos).

In fact, I'd take the Gallardo platform in Audi dress over the Lambo

+1 to the TF&TF quote (aka, TG&TC) Craig's car was OK, mine was was more groovy

The Apple maps in Ferraris was the first joke that came to my mind and it appears others as well.

The Lamborghini Muira is one of the most beautiful cars made. Other classic European exotics are beautiful as well.

I'm not a fan of modern exotics regardless of country of origin. The late 60s/early 70s was the peak of automotive design in terms of visual aesthetics.

For those saying iphone/ferrari integration; Ferrari has used iPod touches for a while. Specifically the 16M Scud comes with a touch.

It's all subjective of course. I can see you prefer a different look. As for me, I love the look that Lamborghini first brought in with the Countach (about the time you lost interest in the mid 70s!), and evolved since then. It's not elegant sophistication, or the promise of a smooth ride—the design says raw power, something wild and untamed. What else would you want a 6.5 litre V12 super-guzzler to say!

True, this is entirely subjective.

Modern exotics look like they were designed by computers not sculptors. They have a quality that suggests function is given priority over aesthetics. At least as far as I'm concerned.

It's just a different kind of aesthetic.

Like comparing this…

You probably have forgotten about Ferrari Italia 458, aren't you? IMHO it's the best looking Ferrari!
