    the glass-roof automatically "folds" in ten seconds and the "darkness" can be regulated at the desired level!
    I'm not sure you can operate it at 200 mph, though.

    It's cool isn't it... I'm surprised reactive style glass isn't more popular though.

    I do really wish that Ferrari would sort out their styling... when did Pininfarina last design a truly beautiful Ferrari? the 612 isn't anywhere near as beautiful as it should've been, the 550/575 was attractive enough, but lacked that 'zing, the 360 was abit bland same goes for the F430, the F355 was a '80's hangover from the 348.... so we end up with either the 288 GTO or Testarossa... both from 2 Decades ago.

    Alfa Romeo with the 8C Competizione really nailed the classically beautiful italian sportscar, that to me looks more like a contemporary 250 GTO. :D

    The 360 is the last ferrari without styling faults - don't say bland, say uncluttered. Lately they've been getting less pretty...

    ...still better than what happened over at BMW, though.

    I think it's bland... with many bad lines myself. I do know people that love the 360 and the 355 previous to that, but I just don't think it's elegant enough (250 GT SWB, 250 GT PF Coupe, 365 GTB4) or to go the other way controversial enough (Testarossa, F40, Enzo Ferrari) to really be a Ferrari.

    Pininfarina just don't seem to be penning beautiful lines anymore. :( There isn't 1 model in the current production range that I'd consider buying.

    I'll agree that the 360 won't compete with some of the great designs, but it works for me. Don't forget the Dino - I love the lines on that car. Who cares if it isn't a "proper" Ferrari?

    I spotted a Testarossa all cracked up on a flatbed about a week ago - the most painful sight I've ever seen. It was probably the only one in Ohio too. :(

    indeed... the 206 GT and 246 GT/GTS a beautiful car, never badged a Ferrari was the little Dino.


    Ouch... I loved the Testarossa, especially the early models with it's quirky high mounted wing mirror :)

    The biggest travesty (except for maybe the 365 GT4/400/412) is what Ferrari did to the Testarossa/512 TR turning it into the F 512 M :eek: :rolleyes: what on earth were they thinking? heads should've rolled with this almighty f**k-up!!

    Still, even Ferarri's worst won't touch Aston Martin's '86 Zagato. Stylistically a far cry from the DB-7, I would think.
