    That's ****ing slow :D


    The DSG auto tranny on a $22,000 Volkswagen can shift in 8ms. C'mon Ferrari, you can do better than a Volkswagen ;)

    Looks like a Ferrari had sex with the Jetson's car.

    How fugly!

    Silly to me anyways, i would rather take a mildly fast car with the best looks and features on the market.

    The Aston Martin DBS, that car is perfection.

    I agree. I am never going to use all its potential hp every single day, I'd rather buy a house or multiple houses with that kind of money.

    I'll take a G37S anyday...

    VW cheated and used a second clutch!
    I couldn't find what number this was. :confused:
    You don't the opportunity to use it every day anyway. It's not street legal in any country, you don't keep it in your own garage. Ferrari says when you get to drive it.

    I don't care if they used 20 clutches, the point is, VW has a sequential manual tranny that shifts much faster than the one on a Ferrari that probably costs almost a million dollars :D

    Exactly which is why I wouldn't get it in the first place.

    You can say that now, but if a couple million dollars was pocket change to you, and you were one of 20 people in the world to be invited by Ferrari to own this vehicle, a once in a lifetime opportunity, you might be saying something different :D If I was in that situation, I'd jump on the chance, as unpractical and expensive as it might be.

    Besides, if you have the money for the FXX, you have the money for a really, really nice daily driver. You'd need one even if the car was street legal, would you really want to take this thing when you go grocery shopping? I don't think I'd want a runaway shopping cart slamming into the bumper of my million dollar Ferrari.

    I'd rather buy a helicopter and use it as my daily driver.

    Personally, I think its ugly. I've always loved Ferrari's F50 and 550 Maranello though. Ahh... gotta go pick up my lucky numbers from Ms. Cleo :D

    As far as I understand it, Ferrari haven't used it because it's too heavy.

    Also, DSG's shift prediction isn't necessarily suited to what is essentially a race car, in unanticipated situations, the shift time increases dramatically, and in such a high revving car as the FXX Evoluzione, you could find yourself out of the powerband momentarily.

    bhp/litre. I could've rounded to the nearest decimal... but I couldn't be bothered, and you can't round it up. Obviously. :p

    I bet Mr Ferrari P4/5 wasn't on the invite list. Which is a shame as he may have made the FXXe look nice!

    Ferrari were really impressed with the P4/5 so I understand.

    Yes, hence it still being called a Ferrari.
    But it was said to be better looking than the Enzo by a lot of motoring press and Mr Di Montezemolo doesn't like Ferrari being outshined by anyone!

    From what I understand, the reason why Ferrari hasn't used the DSG is due to copyright and patent infringements, along with VAG still being in talks about proprietary use of their transmission. The Bugatti Veyron has it, Porshes are soon to have it, Lamborghini is soon to have it, Ferrari is just hoping and developing their own solution (like most other car companies) yet not being like the original. Like Vista copying Leopard, close but not close enough.

    For those in the position to purchase this, I don't think they mind. Knowing that they are one of twenty out of almost seven billion to own this must be pretty special. Ferrari is Ferrari and they can do as they please to appeal to their customers.
