    +1 they both epitomize speed at best for the eras they represent. 126 from '82 is an iconic car made for an iconic driver which doesn't hurt either.

    I think that the 312T is in a way symbolic too. All red with that white "chimney".

    There's no comparing. The wingless rear engine cars of 1961-1967 are purity and grace. The early turbo era cars were most interesting due to their unique shapes, but all had an aardvarkian countenance. Not hideous, but ungainly. Since that time, design has exclusively been the work of one Mr. Tunnel, and with it, a fair amount of sensuality.

    Me too - I love the 1996 car - it looked like a thoroughbred but performed like a piggy.

    Other cars I like - 1990 Ferrari 641/2, 1967 312F1, F2002, the 1958 car - forgot the model #

    Enzo Ferrari also agreed with you, except the last part.
    I think that il Commendatore said something like it is the ugliest car he has seen I believe.
    I like it
