Italdesign unveiled Tuesday its tribute to Giorgetto Giugiaro's 50 years in automotive design, the Ferrari GG50. Based on the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, the 2+2 GG50 features shorter front and rear overhangs, a photochromic roof, folding rear seats, and a true hatchback rear lid.

The car was unveiled at Bridgestone's Headquarters in Tokyo. The GG50 will be the centerpiece of Bridgestone's display area at the Tokyo Motor Show.

      Doesn't look Italian enough to me - Or "Ferrari" enough to me, for that matter. Pretty radical.

      Some nice elements but this is a boring design. You can tell the idea wasn't hatched from scratch (that is, it's easy to see it was based on another car's platform - it looks like it was shrinkwrapped to a pre-existing shape/chassis). Any true Ferrari character is lacking - it looks 'melted' - no characteristic lines of a Ferrari remain. The wheels don't match well with the car's look and proportions and the tail (when viewed in the picture here: http://www.automobilemag.com/auto_shows/tokyo/0511_ferrari_gg50/) looks like that of a Cobalt SS. Nothing wrong with that other than it is not Ferrari, just isn't.

      From the front, I am seeing a bit of the Honda S2000 to be honest, and while the S2000 looks great as a Honda, as a Ferrari it looks like a Mazda and from the side, in some strange way (if the back wasn't so thick) a Dodge Neon.

      Maybe it's just me but I kinda like the top picture, the side view is a little to corvette granted, remove that indentation in the side and I think it's better. Now if they could only find a way to package that for $40,000.

      A very "Giugiaro-ish" design. Look for the C-pillar to show up on a Hyundai/Kia/Lexus in 3 or 4 years.

      Actually the GTR Proto looks much much better, but yes quite similar

      Less ugly than the 612 at least...

      For a Ferrari....this is bad! It looks like a fish from a PIXAR film. Ferrari go back to your ROOTS. RGP

      The front is awesome, but the rear haunches sit at odds with it... and the windows arent Ferrari, they're Porsche... and get rid of those Giovanna rims, not hot.

      Curious that Giugiaro would do a Ferrari when Pinifarina has been the Prancing Horse's design studio almost exclusively as long as Ferrari has been around. It's not pretty, but it's also a lot better-looking than the 612 Scaglietti.

      I agree. The headlights appear to be taken from some Cadillac or bad GM product of some sort. Otherwise a very nice looking shape
