    Both cars being the last of its kind as none assisted v12, I am now in wonderland.

    I have owned aventador way back when they first came out, and it was some fun driving fast straight but my driving has changed since and I am no longer in to 4WD or driving fast straight.

    812 spider will be overkill slightly because I then will have 3 v12 FRs, tdf, 812, 812spider. But it will be limited run by production time constraints and since 599 Aperta, it will be last of the very very rare kind.

    Money matters and I might not have both... what to do?

    SVJ gives nice variation.
    812 spider gives driving pleasure of uncommon kind.

    Both are keepers for good along with tdf.

    The countach was introduced in 1971. Basically the Aventador is the same shape, it hasn't changed in nearly 50 years. I can't stand that pancake shape, and I contend the 812 is much better technologically. it's a no brainer. (and what else do you expect on the FChat page?!?)

    I think 812 spider is a no brainer. If Fchat sources are to be believed, it is supposed to be a proper V12 spider (not a Barchetta or SA or a hyper limited car), something Ferrari has not done since the Daytona spider. I think there is going to be tremendous demand for these, you seem to be high enough on the pecking order to get one of the early ones. If, for some reason, you don't like then you can always shift it and probably make some money on it.
    Also they are making way too many of the SVJs (more SVJs than SVs actually!) and I am sure there will be 50 more limited editions before the new car comes along.

    I think you should take the 812 Spider no matter what. Maybe trade the coupe for the spider and get an SVJ if that’s what you want.

    I’m going to get the 812 Spider (if I can), and keep my 812 coupe as daily. And trade in my current SV coupe when the SVJ roadster comes in.
    Big lambo always gives you something that no other manufacturers can. I love to enjoy different types of driving experience. As the whole industry heading right now, not sure if the next big lambo would have the same old soul again.

    In the end of the day, all these V12’s are dying. If your plan is long term, just keep them all I guess. You could get the TDF so chances are you gonna get the 812 limited series, you can always unload your 812 or TDF at that time depends on what Ferrari is coming out with.

    812 spider it is..
    I will skip svj for the sake of money.
    Will focus more on Ferrari v12s and future Icona if I get lucky.

    Thanks all for comments :)

    That's what I would do, if I were you... Yes same car but coupe and spider each offer very different drive experience.
