    Oh no.. now Allan's blood pressure will go through the roof again and wont get any sleep! Why do you guys keep tormenting him? He is going to die of a heart attack, and its going to be F-Chat's fault! I forecast at least 20 posts by Allan on this thread.... You guys always get the better of him!! LOL!!!

    Ernesto

    PS. DEFINITELY the 575M... unless youre a pimp with the bling bling or need to have people staring at you all the time with the rolling carnival show... LOL...

    since you can't get murcies for short-money, i assumed the question was apple-dollars to apple-dollars --- so a new 575 -vs- a new murcie.

    imo, that's a no-brainer: murcie since you can get used maranellos for comparatively short-money.

    plus the murcie won't have the near-term depreciation of the 575 (at least the markets aren't demonstrating that as a percentage it's as bad - time will tell).

    why are you guys bashing the murcie? it's a damn-neat, serious-ass car!

    i'm not a fan of the gallardo at all, but the murcie is a bona-fide non-poseur in my book!

    doody.

    Murci in a heartbeat. Has the looks and power the 575 just doesn't have. Plus as Doody said you can get a 550 for half the money of a Murci.

    Murci as well.

    I bet Allan is calling up every live soul he knows and asking them to log into Ferrarichat to vote for the Murci.

    Hey, Allan you can only vote once under your name!!!!!!!!!!

    Murci, it's not even close.

    As far as it being a "rolling carnival show" and all that, well you have to put up with the staring if you're going to be banging Pam Anderson.

    PS - No one here is ever critical of the TR for the same thing, that car is as much of a showstopper today as a Murci is. Stop whining.

    they don't seem like the same type of car, i mean the 575 is more of a gt car and the murci is a lot more aggressive in every sense. which is why my vote would go for the murci.
     
  17. Let's put it this way, if someone gave me a brand-new 575M I'd burn it to the ground and use the insurance money to get a Murcielago.

    Yes, thanks! The Murcie is the Pam Anderson of exotic italian cars! LOL.... I wouldnt touch her with a ten foot pole!

    Some people dont want to up up with the staring and dont need constant attention from strangers... thats what happens when you drive one of these rolling carnival shows with scoops and spoilers and swing up doors and chrome and graphics all over the sides, etc etc. Its attention some people actually DONT want...

    So you are saying people don't buy Ferraris for attention? Give me a break! Why spend the extra money over a vette then? If you do not want attention, neither car makes sense.

    You miss the point if you are buying a car to get attention.. Just walk around naked, dye your hair purple, and hang a sign around your neck that says "I NEED ATTENTION"... youll get plenty that way for free...

    Uh, did anyone here SAY they're picking the Murci over the 575M for the attention?

    Get off it guy, and let's get real. You wouldn't turn down a TR for all the attention it gets would you? Or an Enzo for that matter?

    You're obviously F-car biased.

    Lighten up. They're all Italian sports cars, picking one marque over another is insane. Judge the cars for themselves, cheerleading is for girls.

    Feel and experience aint worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Don't kid yourself if you think that people don't buy Exotic cars for status as well as to just tool around and never even use the car for anything close to what it can do you are wrong.

    Just looked at your profile. Kinda funny you bought a bright yellow 360. Nothing screams "hey look at me" much louder than that!

    lol, OWNED.

    Yellow is for taxicabs and school buses. That people think it's a viable sportscar color these days is beyond me, but to each their own.

    Can someone explain why you would buy a 575M (Fiorano or not) over say a GT3 if its NOT about attention or the Ferrari heritage/image. The GT3 beats the 575M in value for money, track-times (e.g. 4.15 secs faster around Bedford according to Evo), reliability, service intervals, maintenance costs, resale, etc.

    Seriously, I'm not "trolling", I'm wondering what the criteria were when choosing this Ferrari over other possibilities. I ask this because I don't think the 575 M is a strong F-car. I think the 360 makes a much better case for itself. Anyone agree?
