    Very Audi-ish wheels on the press cars.

    I applaud your initiative but I predict consensus will never be reached. Thank you Ferrari for another dumb name.

    It's always fun to get a non-car person's take on Ferrari's latest creations. My daughter is one of those people. I showed her the photos of the coupe and spider. She loves them! The first thing she said was how she liked how the car looks like a classic car with its big, curved fenders over the rear wheels, and at the same time, looks very modern. This was all stated without any prompting or first-opinion from me. She thinks they are both beautiful cars.

    I've been noticing that as well. The people that aren't really into cars, or at least exotics seem to really enjoy the design.

    While I don't hate the design as much as i did when it came out, it still seems lacking. It looks like a Portofino successor.

    I’d rather buy a Portofino vs the 12C…

    Im still coming back for the pics. And while I have a couple issues with it, this is best design out of Ferrari since the 360.

    I understand as to the switchgear and steering wheel (sans touchpads), but the sound? The Portofino is so wheezy in comparison. I concede that for non-V12-nuts, there is little a Portofino actually does that the 12C will provide. But they're already positioning it as not being for that buyer. It's for the "I want the last NA V12," guy. And now that they delivered...

    There seem to be quite a few on the market - so that should be an easy deal to do. Probably Ferrari’s best entry level car in quite a while.

    The Ferrari 12 Cilindri positioning is as illustrated in the 12 Cilindri product note (I posted the link to the document in another thread):

    This is worth the repost. This looks fantastic, and classic- not to be confused with retro. The full mask detail is a bit too much.

    It will look nicer if the stripes are omitted

    The stripes helps attract the eyes to the stripe and away from the odd bits. A Viper with 2 extra cylinders it is

    I never really like the stripes on my viper. Or any viper really. The ACR kinda made it work though. I'll be painting my project viper in a couple weeks and no stripes it is. I suppose I am probably in the minority on that opinion. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I don't know if this has been posted before: if you have problems with all the black in the delta wing motive, you can do without the privacy glazing. The clear rear window significantly reduces the amount of blackout at the rear. But please at least leave the two flaps black and don't go to the foiler...;)

    The flaps are my issue, not the window...
