Not impressed


While in Sunny Florida and at Wal-Mart yes in the Wally World parking lot and it was not even in the far Egypt parking lot but up close we saw this!

I see some familar lines on our Sky and for the price, wooser how much for the little pony ouch!
The owners came out while we were looking and said it gets 55 mpg, ok that nice for such a hefty price. The one we saw was a lighter gray but not the famous red, guess they do come in other colors now. Somthing very close to the sky no trunk they popped the trunk and I swear it had less room then the Sky!
I will take my Red Line over this Ferrari spyder any day.

I drove one thes things and I'm with you, it's not worth the money and I didn't think it was as comfortable or fun to drive either.

Is this the V8, 490 hp, 193 mph Spyder? 55 MPG?

If that is true they can cut the engine in half, still get decent performance and get 110 MPG.

hands down I take the Ferrari if I could afford it. Sorry as much as I love my Sky, it may as well be a fiat when comparing it to that car.

Soooo, let me get this straight. There are two rooms. In one room is Brooke Burke naked, smiling, looking at you, and patting the space beside her. In the next room is a heffalump naked, cracker crumbs on her hairy chest, she's smiling at you through her two teefies, and Oprah on the TV. You would choose ugly face mofatumus?

You peopole are nuts....once the new car wears off you will not feel the same.
Any prancing horse owner does not care about MPG. It is all about performance and ego.

No... I'm basing my decison on cup holders. I didn't see anything in the specs about cup holders. How can a spec sheet not list how many cup holders a car has?

What kind of piece of crap is that Ferrari anyway? No damned cup holders.

Grumble, grumble, grumble...

First:"BABY" Silver Pearl 9 May 06
Then:"SPIRIT" Black Onyx Red Line 25 Oct 06

Small trunk and NO cup holders!


I did not see a cup holder, hmm..
As it drove away it was very quiet, so all those out there that think the Sky exhaust is tame, don't buy Ferrari sounds like a sissy car. I wonder if the Ferrari might have something like the V-8 Impala DOD (displacement on demand) that might give the guy his 55 MPG maybe. I guess us two Okies looked like that would be a reason to buy such a car, gas mileage, since he gave us the information without us asking. I should have said: "Gee gosh by darn mister our ole corvette gets 28 MPG on the highway cruising guess I better buy that there foreign car so I can get better gas mileage. Yup!
I wonder what it cost to have work done on a Ferrari after the warranty runs out?
