Weeks before the show the first images dripped into the media and I thought "wow, what a strong design theme". It is remarkable how, over the last couple of years, Ferrari has managed to renew its product portfolio and design language. After the rather baroque Scaletti and California the Italia and FF are pretty crisp and fresh. I like the silhouette and proportions of the FF, not so much its size. The 456 Italia with its light stance and strong shoulder theme combines aerodynamics with aesthetics.
The F12 is the third member with this new attitude of the prancing horse. Interesting to see how the edginess of the front softens towards the rear. The most brilliant feature though is the air channel between the bonnet and the flanks. A functional aerodynamic feature that determines the theme of the F12 and underlines the capsule like cabin. An overall idea molded into metal and truly inspired on racing heritage/experience. Forward looking Italian "flare", thumbs up!
