Awesome super exotic F-car... but IMO it deserves a more aggressive title than LaFerrari

In Italian, LaFerrari translates to The Ferrari.
The one. The best Ferrari ever made.

I agree. I hate the front styling, I understand the gaps provide aerodynamic downforce, but i think using actuated body panels would be better. Similar to McLaren and Lamborghini.

Back in 1996 when it came out, I thought it was one of the best cars around.

I was talking about the 550. The only part of the 430 that I dislike was the intakes behind the door. They didn't go well with the rest of the car IMO.

550 is actually very nice. The 430 looks like it's giving you some stupid toothless grin with the front intakes.

I have always appreciated Ferrari for the lines and the history. I owned a 360 Modena and it was a beautiful car....and now I love the California, the 458, and my all time favorite, the 1972-1974 246GT Dino. Que Bella!

I find the GT-R ugly...never would I pay that price for a Nissan...but that is why there are so many different models. Everyone likes something different.
