      That's pretty stupid, they're low enough already. They need to be lowered as much as somebody like Michael Jordan needs to walk around with stilts.

      Less room for oxygen beneath the engine means less fuel for engine fires. It's a safety feature.

      The F40 doesn't look too bad. I don't think I would prefer to drive it that low.

      The rest are a joke, but if they promise to drive them and not lock them away in a garage, I'll let them slide.

      I drive a lowered car and have bumped/scraped a few driveways and speed bumps so I cannot imagine doing that in an F40 much less any other Ferrari. Plus, most of those look horrible so hard pass for me.

      Nay to ANY car lowered or stanced, regardless of model or brand. It looks stupid AF.

      Sometimes a car is perfect AS IS.
      Why is that so hard to understand?

      Now this I like. It looks purposefully low, and not all cambered out with stretch and poke.
