An evolutionary step similar to the step up from the 360 Modena to the F430. Insiders who have had a chance to drive the car say it has better turn in then the f430 Scuderia and less understeer at the limit. The improved rear suspension design will give the car traction on corner exit on par with a Porsche GT2.
Also some interesting tidbits from Italy's top car mag, Quattroruote. Apparently, though the design of the car has been finalized, Ferrari is playing games with the pictures it has released so far. The car's appearance will be somewhat different especially the nose and the sides which will both be more aggressive in styling that what you see now. The nose will feature an elastic "lip" which will change in shape as speed increases and there will also be other movable aerodynamic parts on the car.
As a side note, Dany Bahar, Ferrari's Global Brand Manager who came to Maranello two years ago from Red Bull, has very suddenly "resigned". It is rumored that he had personally bought into as much as 20% of Lotus and this did not sit well with Ferrari's management, for obvious reasons.
And here is the rest of it.
