"Ferrari are planning a much more radical facelift of the 360 Modena, which is expected to be released late next year. Concern about dropping behind its rivals, which include the shortly to be released "baby" Lamborghini L140, as well as the lukewarm reception that the facelifted 575M has received since its launch earlier this year, has pushed Ferrari into greater changes than originally envisioned.
The new car will be fitted with Ferrari's new 4.2-litre V8 engine which is already fitted to the new Maserati Coupe and Spyder. However to keep Ferrari above Maserati, the 184kg engine is expected to be tuned to produce around 465bhp, 75bhp more than in the Maserati. Styling will be overhauled, the 360 Modena has come in for criticism for its bland looks and a much more distinctive styling is expected, possibly drawing cues from the new Enzo supercar.

It is believed that the new car will be known as the "420 Modena", and is scheduled to make its debut in September next year, several months after its Lamborghini rival."

I have heard about this too. I can't wait to see what it will look like.
This is what they should do:

Place the f1 shifters on the steering wheel.
Make a gts version with the t-top.
Keep a similar look with the existing model.
Add carbon fiber to the body.
Any other ideas?

IMHO, the Modena isn't bland at all... it's not a TR, but it's not bland either...

And even though I like the Enzo, I hope the 420 does not get it's nose... It just doesn't fit the car... :cool:
