    I’ve been on this forum for a while now and have seen some amazing Ferrari’s. Ever since I was a kid, the Ferrari was my dream car. From the F355 (from the movie the Rock & Boiler Room) to the 348, 360, to the 430 then the 458. This forum sure knows how to sell the dream! I find the members here are pretty cool and truly are passionate about their cars.

    I finally pulled the trigger and sold my 2012 V10 R8 spyder (I still love that car) and picked up a 2014 Rosso Berlinetta F12.

    The car was originally sold here back in September 2020...I was following it then it disappeared. 2 months later, I found it offered for sale again. It does have “higher miles” on it but man do I feel blessed to own it especially with everything that’s happening with regards to this pandemic.

    Every time I drive it, man it feels amazing. I’ve read that “driving a Ferrari is an emotional experience” and it sure is. I go to my garage and just stare cause I’m still in disbelief. I OWN A FERRARI!

    This is a keeper for me...(i know many people say that then upgrade lol ) but if anything I’d add a 458 in the future.

    This has been a great forum to be a part of...informational and supportive. Looking forward to someday soon participating in Ferrari meet up’s and meeting some of you.

    Here’s some pics. This is not my garage btw...this was at a Ferrari body shop that just did some cosmetic upgrades.

    Nice!

    Light carbon definitely adds a nice touch. I also lowered mine with novitec springs.

    Congrats! My F12 is also my first Ferrari and sometimes I still can't believe that I'm owning a V12 Ferrari!:)

    Thank you. I love the other shades of red from Ferrari too.

    Honestly never new that many shades existed. I just thought red was red

    My recent 812 I had was rosso fiorano , a $12k option as opposed to berlinetta a $34k option . I can assuredly say that berlinetta is much nicer, problem is the cost on top of the car & other options is crazy, buying a Ferrari is a black hole any way you look at it.

    regardless enjoy!

    Love rosso fiorano! The original sticker on my F12 was $315K. After all the options, $434K crazy when you really think about it.
