So I never got into the hybrid thing. Just seem to prefer gas, diesel, or Rocket fuel. Then I saw this article on a new hybrid and would love to have one of them.

LaFerrari: The fastest Ferrari road car ever comes with just one name | Motoramic - Yahoo! Autos

Too bad for me though as all the to be built units have been spoken for and then some

Love the shape, not a fan of the details(vents and such)

Ferrari designers over the last few year need to have their head examined. That thing is hideous.

Look at F1 cars. Med/high speed areo efficiency and light weight aint pretty.. its not about looks, its about being more stable at the speeds that that car will be driven at on track. Some posers MAY own Ferraris, but they are BUILT to be actually used properly.

Should fix the last sentence to say. "Most Ferrari's are owned by posers, but the cars are built for the race track"

The former CEO of our hospital was given lessons at Willow Springs on how to drive his. He has owned a few Ferraris. I remember having a ride in his car and loved the experience, something that everyone should have at least once in their life. Then again you do need to have someone that can make the car go as it was made to go. So much more fun that way.

Personally I love the look of the car. It is built as it should be.

Ugly is sin. Even a Prius looks better. This is the first Ferrari that didn't get any design help from the outside the company (pininfarina, bertone, italdesign etc) and it shows. Also WTF is up with that name?

I don't think it is as hideous as you all are claiming; that being said it is a moot point, I can't afford one either way.

Still has much of the shape of the Ferraris over the past decade or so, but it looks like someone went bat**** crazy with vents and crap......

I think it looks excellent. I don't see the connection to the Le Car (another car I like).
