It might be nicer in person, but what about the front grill ? I wrote a few weeks ago how I hated it. Does it look better in person. Again, even in that picture below, I think it's awful.

My 15 Corvette Z06 has the same type of wheel well liners. They have been completely shredded. Since it’s just a track car for me, the Cup2 tires throwing klag at them at triple digit speeds all the time make them look like one of those bead-curtain doorway covers from the 60s. Stupid idea.

So I got an invitation from our dealer (Ferrari of Vancouver) to view the new Roma. No test drives, just a showing.
 
As always, the cars look better in person than they do in pictures and it’s another example that they look better in a color other than red.
 
It’s an interesting mix of fussy details and smooth, unadorned shapes. Rear ¾ profile is a dead-ringer for the Jaguar F-Type (maybe a little more muscular than the Jag). Interior is a step in the 21st century with touch-screen everything. The gear selector switches in the center console mimic a shifter gate, which, if they’re trying to appeal to a younger generation, may not “get it”.
 
Although it couldn’t be driven, the “key” was in it and the salesman said I could start it up (via a touch-screen illuminated button in the center of the steering wheel). It sounded really nice and was more aggressive than my friend’s GTC4 Lusso V-8.
 
One thing that I found curious and was pointed out by my friend as it’s featured on his car were the wheel wells. They are lined with a fuzzy, flocked material, almost like fleece. I’m sure it’s for sound-deadening. My friend hates it as it collects every single bit of dirt and debris.
