    redshift - I think the intakes are behind the windows, built into the C-pillars. It looks to me like there is almost a 599-esque flying buttress there that is actually not a pass-through, but rather an intake. It's more visible on the side-view. But that raises an interesting point in my mind - how is the waste heat managed? The grilles at the tail end seem rather undersized, especially in light of the stories I have heard about 360 owners putting Challenge Stradale rear grilles on non-Challenge cars to get better cooling. Sadly I have no way of confirming any of those stories - has anybody else heard anything like that?

    With the wide mouth and swept eyes it looks like a beautiful catfish on steroids.

    I also like the high greenhouse/low fenderline ratio, looks great and a better driving environment than the tanks with slit windows that have been turned out lately. Overall a beautiful car.

    Man.. Something is seriously wrong.. when I believe their cars are getting generic. The styling.. is just, been there, done that. They went from the 355 to the 360 Modena to the F430.. to this. Im sorry.., this and the California.. are just missing the beat.
