Yeah, yeah, we know -- you hate hatchbacks and wagons. Mmm-hmm. We’ll pretend to listen -- and we’ll even ignore that crossover parked in your driveway. You know, the one with the hatch in back and the station-wagon shape? Whatevs, ya big hypocrites.
Europeans aren’t closeted in their hatchback love so, yeah, Ferrari built a wagon. A shooting brake, technically -- because it has only two side doors -- like the BMW Z3 and Z4 “coupes” of the last decade. Like the BMWs, Ferrari’s shooting brake isn’t exactly beautiful to our eyes, but it is, however, badass awesome looking. For the record, it looks a lot better on the road than it does in photos -- and your author loves it in ways and wants to lick it in places that aren’t suitable to describe even on the Internet.
