    Okay by request, and I figure why not. What is the best looking Ferrari V12 model. I'll keep it to post 1970's cars.

    The best old Ferrari V12 is the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. The best Ferrari V12 from the prsent generation is the 575 M Maranello. Both are front-engined cars, just as the best Ferrari cars ever.

    But, the very best V12 Ferrari ever is the 250 GT PininFarina Berlinetta "Tour de France" (1959). Ohhhw, I love that car, both on street and track!!

    The are always referred to as being Boxers, but in fact they are 180 degree V12-s. Í am not technical enough to explaine this matter, but i am sure there is plenty of information on this subject on the board somewhere...

    BB and TR have 180 degree angle V12 engines.
    In real boxers - Porsche and BMW Bikes - the crank / piston setup is totaly different. So Ferrari is wrong naming their cars "Boxer".
    Legal to answer this poll: The 512 BB is the best looking V12.

    Sorry Dudes, but I must break the rules...

    Hands down, the most beautiful v12 ferrari ever designed is the 275GTB from the mid 60s. Number two for me would be the 250 GT Lusso.

    Both are Pininfarina masterpieces

    Thank You, Ernie!

    Since we are voting popular F 8 cylinders, I was interested in 12 cylinders, too. So far 550/575 & 512TR/M(including TR) are way ahead of others.
