Lot of risks being taken by the brand with this one. I guess we'll see if it sounds as good as other Ferraris and if the weight of the batteries negatively impacts handling and the feel behind the wheel.

It does look good but has hints of the new Corvette with some angles.

Can't wait to see one in real life though!

They quote 3200 lbs so it's only about 36 lbs more than a GT3, but with a huge 317 bhp more. The battery is under the floor which lowers the overall cg as well.

It seems to sound pretty good too, especially for a twin turbo. The recording on this video is bad but it gives you an idea.

Lots of cool tech in there & I appreciate Ferrari's shift towards more elegant styling (other than the floating a-pillar which looks goofy to my eye). Does this replace the 488/f8 or will there be a midengine V8 model in the future?

Way back when at my fathers shop, he had a customer with a nice maroon Dino. Loved that car and it's worth a mint right now. This new one looks fantastic, sounds fantastic and by all reports is a hell of a drivers car. Hope to see one in person.
