(It's one of the reasons I really don't like the ZR1. Its too gimmicky)

This just looks like a Ferarri 599 that's been to the gym. I expect it to be fast and carve corners very well. I do not expect to be impressed in the very least.
You think part of that might be down to how good the C6 was? Even though the C5 was pretty good, the C6 didn't seem like a big deal to most people until the Z06 came out...

Maybe it's lost some of its surprise because its immediate predecessors were good cars. As opposed to the C4 and C3, which were supposedly garbage...
