    Love it. Can't afford it. For some reason it reminds me of a custom made Italian shoe. (That's a good thing in my book)

    With the sharp lines it looks closer to a Lambo'. I have always liked the slightly softer lines in the Ferarri's. Sort of "understated" in a supercar sort of way.

    Get ready to get depressed. You could buy 7+ 2010 MCS's very nicely equipped compared to one of these.

    Would really like to find out if this car is 7X better than a MINI. I think it probably is..............matter of fact I'm near certain

    As I am certain that if I drove that car I would attract 10 times more women I would therefore say it is 10X better then the Mini. Of course since I am married, I am not allowed to attract any women, so (and this is where the math gets fuzzy) that would make the 458 infinitely better then the Mini. :crazy:

    I'm also certain that you would not hear that dreaded phrase that I hear from women when they see my MINI "It's such a CUTE little car" :mad2::mad5::incazzato:

    This cute? I think not

    I think the Ferarri owner hears a slightly diff phrase...."your place or mine"

    10X more appealing in that respect but can only carry one woman where the MINI can carry three. So it's 1/10 vs. 3/1, the MINI technically has a better reality/woman ratio in that you can make use of other things such as a rolex, your looks, wit, charm, roofies, etc. to make up the difference. However, you're married so the actual equation for a married owner of a Ferrari is 1/0 (room for one woman, zero opportunity) and well, you just can't divide by zero, a married Ferrari owner is a sort of Unicorn, a mythical creature that's mathematically impossible but may yet exist.
    I'm liking the way this thing looks, the lines are much more organic and Ferrari seems to be moving away from some of the garish cues that permeated their lineup around the turn of the century.

    Either that car is pretty large, or the driver in that photo has a tiny head. Seems to be as much headroom as in a New Beetle, you could easily wear a 10 gallon hat in one of those.
