    Subjective, but let's take a vote.

    Reply with your ideal configuration of the car you selected if you like.

    The one in your garage is always the best IMO. Now, if you're lucky enough to own more than one, we'll then you got a "problem".

    The 360, one of which I own, is a fabulous car. But i say the 599 is the best.

    For me it’s the 456: extremely subtle, refined and still ‘analog’.

    2005 575 with a manual transmission.
    When I drove one it was sublime, the 2007 599 did not elicit the same feel, found it frustrating and awkward.

    I don't own any of these, ie - objective voter!!! :)

    I pick the 456M but that barely squeaks out a win over the 360 Modena and the 458 Italia, both of which are very pretty cars.

    Ive only owned a 355/360/California so not a lot of experience. Id pick the 360 out of those three. But I hav e a feeling Id fall in love with the 599

    I've also fancied owning a manual red/tan 456M which seems rare.

    At least two F-chatters own just such a beast, albeit automatic version. I think the 456M GTA is a great choice for this poll, I'd add the 599 SA Aperta, 599 GTO to the mix as well as the Italia...T

    I think for a 456M I would choose Black over Cuoio, Or Black over tan. I like the idea of an automatic in some ways for that car actually, although I am easily swayed by a manual gearbox. Honestly if I were choosing between the two I would probably just go for the car that I liked best aesthetically. Same for the 360.

    The 360 is classic,and I'd opt for the 6-speed (mine was F1 but still great). That having been said, I did like tomc said and voted for the 458 sitting in my garage!

    360 led this poll. Is that because most on here own a 360 or because it's a great looking car?

    I voted for the 550, because I think it is the closest modern connection to the Daytona, but as a QM owner I also secretly want a 456.

    456M especially in darker colors for a 4 seater and Speciale or Pista in the 2 seat category

    Of those, I've had a 456M and a 360. They are a tie if both have a manual, but unfortunately my M was an auto. Plan to rectify that by getting a 456M manual ASAP, which is when 2020 stops being a PITA. :)

    So, I voted for the 360.

    I have a 360 but selected a car on my wish list, the 599.
