  1. I wanted to create a real topic on this car since 94Formula was ruining this forum..anyways here it is...

    WOW...pretty original design, wouldn't you agree? I would say it almost resembles a Mercedes, as far as the body goes? very original design! I like it.

    I like it also.

    The interesting thing is that while we consider it a 'Ferrari', the bulk of the exterior design cues are classic, classic Touring coachwork. You can see a lot of these elements in later cars. My personal iteration of this basic body style was the 166MM

    At that time, the only reason 'Il Commendatore' sold road cars at all was to finance the race program, so the coachbuilders had a lot of discretion. You can really spot each coachbuilder's particular design cues- Touring, Scaglietti, and later Pininfarina and Bertone.

    My personal favorite are the Guigaro designed cars (Daytona, 308, Ghibli, Detomaso Mangusta...)
     
  5. Didn't Guigaro a;so make the 612 <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A> ...

    I think the 166 looks alot like a Bugatti and a Mercedes had a late night.
