My friend who is a big Ferrari guy had one and in person it is really ugly .... he also lost big time when he sold it. I tried to like it but I just couldn’t.

I really love the FF design. Saw one at a cross country ski track just north of Sun Valley ID -- the owner
a) was driving it in winter
b) had a ski rack on it
c) was sitting on the open lift gate area to take off his ski boots.

Still no way I'd want the maintenance. But I love the idea of a practical exotic...

Here's a couple pics...

For sure. There's an old "Harry's Garage" video on the FF in a similar vein (taking it on a ski trip)

This is an old article, but it sounds like Ferrari's now come with 7 years of maintenance included?!

I liked skiing. But not enough to keep doing it after I wrecked my knee at 18.

This, but my knee was wrecked second year of college.

I have watched people kitesurfing on the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington. I would have loved to try that
