  1. blah, blah, blah

    Too much talking and fake excitment..

  2. I see nothing wrong with the Strategy (business wise) and right on (at least claimed) from I what I would want from a Supercar.
    Still, everything is execution and its hard to think about a better pick than the 458 Italia. tough job for McL

    ... I still hate Ron Dennis and his test tube clone child..

  3. I think the launch was a lot more 'human' than the traditional sports car launch. I bet if you looked at every aspect of the 12C's design I'm sure it'd make a F458 seem very compromised.

    However, I still think the F458 is prettier.
