    Perhaps its not that they resemble each other in design and appearance so much as they are kindred in spirit and positioning in the Ferrari line-up. It’s like the 812 Competizione is a royal descendant of a great king. Not the same person, but the same bloodline.

    This time the 250 GTO and the F12 TDF seen from a different angle. The TDF looks the same length or even shorter than the 250 GTO but the real dimensions are:
    250 GTO : Length - 4,325 meters (170.3 in)
    F12 TDF : Length - 4,656 meters (183 in )

    Amazing picture such a dream... at the risk of shocking a few people I’ll say that I almost find the TdF more beautiful...

    I was originally thinking, NO don’t do it! Even the TDF is gonna look ugly next to a 250 GTO. But I’m pleasantly surprised, it’s actually holding it’s own from this angle. Incredible!! Wish mine was tri coat yellow.../cry

    Maybe Mario will be kind enough to show us a side by side comparison between those two masterpieces?

    TDF has a lot of design elements that do not fit well and do not look like a single whole. What beauty are you talking about? You are just a jealous owner of an old model who tries to compliment her against the background of a new, obviously more beautiful and overall better model.

    ps/ sorry for my english, I couldn't resist, because this forum is sometimes very funny to read.

    I’m not sure what jealousy you are referring to and why you seem so angry and aggressive. I will take a few mn to answer you even I though i believe people like you don’t deserve any attention. This is a thread where people share their feelings freely, I’ve been part of that thread for nearly two years and can’t remember seeing any comment from you other than an angry, aggressive and intolerant one. Do I find the tdf more beautiful than the 250 gto on that picture? I do and it’s an opinion that anyone is free to have. Am i jealous because i dont own a 250gto? Not at all i can’t afford it and don’t aspire to but congratulate those who do and salute them. Do i find the tdf more beautiful and elegant than the 812 C? Yes I do and you will notice a few other people here did however this is not the point we are sharing and debating ideas and opinions here with respect. You think I have jealousy? What do you know of the cars I own/owned and the cars I’ve been offered before making such a judgement? I was curious to see the tdf and the 250gto side by side, and if you read my next post also curious to see the 599gto and 250gto side by side ( and I don’t own a 599gto) this contrary to what you think is just some curiosity and interest to see beautiful pictures and reminiscence of the past shared with all of us passionate enthusiasts . Nothing suggesting the 812C isn’t great. Perhaps you are one of those narrow minded owners who think ownership of one car gives some sort of identity and right to disrespect other, for me identity is separate from ownership and what we debating here is passion, ideas, opinion and comparing one car to its predecessors and remind ourselves of Ferrari history isn’t something that should cause anger on the contrary is something many people enjoy doing here, but perhaps you are one of those that can care less of history but more about what a car purchase makes you feel or think you are. Some people here own a few cars, others immense collections but there is no judgement made. You don’t need to prove that you are a big man because you may own soon an 812C and disrespect others for sharing opinions freely. Finally there is no jealousy, everything has a price. Whoever wants a car these days can buy it with money, no need for you to feel like superman because you may have been allocated one slot which many people and collectors here have without the need to show disrespect to others. This isn’t the place to be intolerant and angry, if you want to be angry I suggest you take your car(s) to a race track and come back here with a more respectful attitude.

    What do you mean by “what beauty you are talking about” ? You come here from nowhere with G knows what drives your personal interests to pretend there is no beauty in a car that is revered by most Ferrari enthusiasts? I actually wonder what kind of cars you own and what interest you actually have in Ferrari for making such comments. These are disrespectful to the brand to start with and while you are in your own right to have your opinion you are also expected to show respect to people on this thread and not disrespect some masterpiece from the past that Ferrari created

    The question is will they use the same 6.5L V12 or a different ( downsized) displacement? Marcel Massini was saying earlier that they will have to downsize, though that article seems to imply the current 6.5L V12 still has life. Interesting how a few years ago the F12B was rumoured to be the last NA V12, then the 812SF, and fast forward 5 years seems totally unlikely... i’d tend to agree with you more likely than not the NA V12 will live after the Competizione
