most mags get it wrong, but I think auto express are better than most.

they have blended 3 current models together.... doubt it... all new ferrari models are pretty different to the previous. with the exception of evolutionary models (348-355, 360-430) etc...

but the 599 replacement IS an evolution, not a new car....

Probably a semantic argument but with new engine, body, interior, gearbox, etc etc - it's certainly not an update.

how much body is new for the 599 replacement??? Just panels or whole monocoque?

all the evolutions have new engines, new panels, new interiors, and often new gearboxes..

ie 430 over 360

355 over 348

TR over Trossa

granted, 575 got very little over a 550

a 328 got lots of changes over a  308, but more subtle for sure

ah, just read this bit again...

A wide mix of alloys will feature in its new chassis, which was developed from the FFs, but will have a shorter wheelbase.



so it IS all new, I guess... which is strange as the 599 has had no evolution.....

just badges and bolt ons. No major changes. other than the chop top, which is just a gas axe job, and the xx, which is a race car built elsewhere.
