It's a great looking car but ferrari needs to stop with the 458 taillights. That's 4 cars with them now
458
FF
F12
La Ferrari aka F150 or F70
It's one thing to use the same taillight design on multiple generations of the same car I.E Corvette but not 4 (possibily 5 or 6) different cars

Actually the headlights of the last Ferrari seems to be very similar, but are not the same... this is what is called "family feeling" by the marketing. This is not the 1st time it happens

Yeah, Ferrari has been doing big circular taillights ever since the 1960s, starting with the 250 GTO series II and the 275 GTB (only 2 lights) and then picking up with the Dino and Daytona (4 lights) and have continued that theme on every car since. The only cars that have not had round lights are the Testa Rossa, the 348, and the 456 (where they lumped the two circles together). The current style, where they look like solid cylinders with bodywork wrapped around them, started on the Enzo. They have switched back to only 2 taillights with the 599, California, Italia, etc, but they were doing that back in the 60s too... All in all, circular taillights are probably Ferrari's most consistent design feature through the years and probably won't go anywhere any time soon.

A focused or planned collection can tell a story, while a random collection talks mostly about the collector. Neither is better than the other, it's personal choice - Woobs

Interesting. I wonder about Corvette too... They have had them almost from the start, but really started playing up the 4 round/oval taillights with the C4-6.

The C4 Corvette design was inspired by Ferrari in many ways, as admitted by GM
