  7. ferrari f2000 dude, no need for thanks
  8. He meant the classic red Ferrari. Does that look like a F2000 to you?

    As it is with many of these hardtop-convertibles
  10. nice honda

    Its a 1940 Auto Avio Costruzioni 815, first car Enzo Ferrari designed, built mostly with Fiat parts.
  13. Really a lot of performance for it's power to weight ratio.
  14. It's like a Corvette but with refinement and better looking.
  15. Since when is a supercar supposted to be practicle? Anyone who buys a Ferrari based on its luggage room is daft.
  16. dunno, didn't open link. Ferrarzzi F150 maybe?
  17. It's people like you who stop me enjoying my wonderful car.
    I can never have nice things
  18. don't forgt it has the small bench with belts in the rear side
  19. But just like in 911 Turbo, you can't put there someone except kids. :D
  20. Ferrari spent over 1,000 hours in the wind tunnel with a one-third-scale model of the California perfecting its aerodynamics. With the top up, the California has a drag coefficient of 0.32, making it the most aerodynamic Ferrari ever made.

    Not a bad GT car at all.

  21. Small rear-seats with isofix are optionals....
  22. price?
  23. I don't Know....
  24. California only looks good in black.
