What I'm wondering is, if this car was exactly the same except a coupe, would you guys all still think it was ugly? Do you guys think it's ugly BECAUSE it's a shooting brake, or because you don't like the ENTIRE design?
I don't like the 458 design that much, but this is like a 458 with an ugly hatchback rear end. It's not an issue of the "shooting brake" (a term which I loathe IMO, just call it a hatchback and be done with it); the issue again is that is is ugly and almost revolting.

Sorry, but IMHO, the 612 looks MUCH better than this.

In comparison, I like the Panamera design. Even the Rapide looks great compared to this. You can even compare the Z3 M Coupe which IMO looks better than this.

To me, this looks downright offensive, not just in terms of styling but in terms of TRADITION, and I'm not even that much of a Ferrari fan. I'm sure some big Ferrari fans probably feel insulted after having seen this abomination.

Design is subjective, it's not something you can objectively explain. While it is subjective, there ARE some designs out there however that the MAJORITY of people hate, and I think this may be one of those designs.

6.3-liter V12 and its 651 horsepower and 504 lb-ft of torque.

I freaking like this car. I would drive it for sure.

I just can't see ANYTHING ugly or even controversial about the design besides the shooting brake and would love to hear thoughts on why the lower half of this design is so terrible.

you see, now that coupe is not ugly.

and yes, the hatchback is uglier than the coupe chop.

maybe it has to do with the shape we are used to seeing in a typical coupe.

Looks good from the front but the rear is just plain ugly.

I thought Pininfarina no longer designs Ferraris as it is now done 'in-house'?

Looks even worse in that color .

Also, what is it with this obsession certain automakers now have with the fish-style big mouth gaping grilles?
