2nd pic made me think i was looking at the FXX body...i still like it tho, but the 458 still remains my favorite Ferrari body, in regards as looks

Ya know... why do all of these ultra-expensive cars have sideview mirrors? For the amount of money spent, I would sooner prefer a lightweight piece of headgear with heads up displays integrated in it... or something like that. Maybe three display screens on the dash, two at the corners, one in the center? And for that amount of cash, They better be HD!

Guess what I'm trying to say here is that those mirrors have to rank as the most whacked out answer to a simple question I've ever seen on a car.

Other than that... I hope to have one of these in my stable soon!

Nice bodies. I have 2 going to my painter. It will be awhile before I can test it. Keep us updated what you think.

Most hypercar desingers are using the side mirror as a flow director for efficient aerodynamics. I'm not sure if it was LaFerrari or a recent article on the Koenigsegg that told me that but either way its a smart use of an aging aspect of the automobile.

I dont think i'd ever want to give up side mirrors.:D

hmm any updates as to its performance? here is a comparison to other cars (source: autoscale info sheet from each car)... note: front / rear offsets and track widths in mm.

car - front offset / rear offset - front track width / rear track width
la ferrari - 2.5 / 2.5 - 75 / 75
458 - 2 / 3 - 74 / 76
599 - 3 / 3 - 76 / 76

all bodies are LL or 98mm wheelbase... so i wonder amongst the three which handles the best... the 599 seems like it has the widest stance... so performance wise, in theory, this must be the most stable... however i like the looks of the 458 the best... followed by the 599... and then the la ferrari... well it's a ferrari... lol... hope they had a better rim design on it...

looking at some of the other cars...

hsv - 2 / 2 - 74 / 74
sc430 2012 (newer version) - 2 / 2 - 74 / 74

above cars also LL wheelbase (98mm)

and finally toyota gt 1 - 3.5 / 1 - 77 / 76
however this is a LLL wheelbase (102mm)

hope somebody can do a review on it soon

Pretty cool... What rims are those? Looks like they're the right offset.

According to this manual (http://www.kyosho.com/jpn/support/instructionmanual/mini-z/pdf/MZX311GP_Ferrari575GTC_m.pdf): F 2.5N / R 3W

My LaFerrari is mounted on MR-03W

Standard offset for the La Ferrari is 2.5 for both front and back. I am using 2.5N F and 3W R right now. It looks like there's enough room to use 3N up front. I haven't had time to check yet.
