On 20 May I visited the Ferrari factory gates at Maranello to watch the new cars coming and going.  In this thread I will post my photo highlights of the visit, including shots a new cars coming and going from the factory gates and cars spotted around Maranello.  The cars spotted include: three 599 SA Apertas (incl. 2 few shells), ~5 599 GTOs, several 458 GT3s, dozens of Ferrari FFs (often in groups of 3-4), dozens of 458s and Californias, 612, 599 HGTEs, F430s and 430 Scuds, 360s and a 355.

Over the coming weeks I will gradually post my photos to the full gallery here and update this thread.

The more I see this car the more I hate the look of it.

Welcome to Vomit town, population, FF Ferrari.

The shields ruin the lines of the side profile. Still not sure whether I like it or not. I will reserve judgement until I see one in the flesh.

Great pics (I'll say it once but applies to all threads from your trip).   Didn't mind that Corvette actually , even though I'd never buy one to drive.

And yeah...........the FF looks like a Panamera with braces.

Did you get to go inside the factory?

No, didn't try to get in. So many forum threads say you can only do that if you are a Ferrari owner and you book well in advance. I didn't think I was going to be able to visit until 2 days before, and I have no Ferrari.
