OK.... I'll blaspheme... I like it, a bit more curvaceous than our beloved NFGT. I'd be thrilled to have either one.

Even more of a copy than the Glickenhaus copy.

Looks like there is something missing, without any headlights.

I like it but sadly does not hold a candle to NFGT in design, and I’m a Ferrari guy. If Ferrari had a car with the NFGT design , people would go nuts—nonstop media attention.

Does anyone remember when the Russians reverse engineered the B-29?

That press release was worthy of a high-profile politician caught with his pants down.

it's an Italianized Ford GT....personally I don't like it, but maybe it looks better in person. I think Ferrari has done much better jobs with the other one offs.

Looks like a Pantera had sex with a NFGT
Funny I was thinking the same about how much Pantera I see when I saw the fist picture

If you read the comments in the Jalopnik story it confirms the GTA car (introduced in 2016...) is a Ford GT (obviously). The Ferrari’s development started in 2015, ahead of the GTA car, and perfectly timed as a NFGT ripoff (which it clearly is).

Not seeing any sort of resemblance between the cars.

Upon further review, they both do seem to have four wheels.

That is bananas.

Similar a-pillar, similar greenhouse, similar tumblehome, same flying buttress signature style element that leads both cars to have nearly identical proportions in plan view. Ferrari obviously went with serviceability by adding the buttress cut line at the back of the greenhouse, which is the same as GT would have been if design hadn't won that argument.

Aren't there copyright laws in automobile design? This is a flagrant rip off!

I'm not gonna call it a ripoff, there's just obviously a ton of similarity in general and with specific elements.
