    I am on the cusp of purchasing an F12. I drove one for a little while and it made me smile. Do people love this car?

    I also have a 458 that I love. There seems to be much more enthusiasm on the 458 forum for that car. Why?

    Owners- do you love your F12?

    I love my f12 of only. 4 months. I think a majority of the love answers enthusiasm you are seeking was all expressed in older posts between 2013 when introduced and before 812 and Tdf was introduced. I assume people’s opinions about the car still stands. It is a more car than I need and is a fantastic v12 gt.

    I can only love a car that I know because love is something that is created and not an emotion that arises out of thin air. In order that I can love a car there has to be connection because just attachment isn’t enough. The real reasons for me to love a car are the ones I discover over time. The more I love a car the more attractive it becomes.
    Am I in love with my F12 ? I am for sure…………………….

    I'm not an owner...yet, but I can say from reading this board for awhile there is a lot of love for the F12. Probably more love in fact than for the 812 which is a better car

    I love mine...I went from a F430, to a 458, and known F12. The 458 was great, but the F12 is a different league. The refinement and sound are sublime. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I would have preferred race seats as well but the one I picked up checked all of the other boxes.

    Have several Fcars. Love the F12. And despite the lure of newness towards an 812, little desire. F12 does it for me. Docile when necessary and raw when not. Drove today in wet mode and what a beast. The noise, the smell and the feel.....
    And I drive it to work

    Why race seats? I have them in my 458. I thought the F12 was better with the comfort seats.

    IMO Daytonas are for 80’s cars. I like the fit and feel of the race also.

    I have the race seats on my F12 and had the Daytonas on another Ferrari. In fact I find the race seats very comfortable and I've made with my wife several long trips of more than 300 miles and on arrival we didn't have to go to the chiropractic. IMO the big difference between the race seats and the Daytonas is on the track and also on sinuous roads. The race seats keep us firmly docked instead of being all over the place.

    I have the full electric seats and are very comfortable. You can flatten the bolsters on longer trips and that allows you to squirm about a bit, which relieves pressure points and lets your hips move (you may not notice but you are doing it all the time to be comfortable on any seat), then if carving up back roads the side bolsters can be stiffened up in seconds.

    The F12 is 2 car’s in one.

    Also consider they probably made several times more 458 than F12. And a little different owner profile between V12 and V8.

    I'm in love with this car since it came to the market ... have it for years now and still enjoy every minute I can drive. Done a lot of miles (50K+) - although not using it as a daily drive - and have no intend of ever selling it (until the moment it will be too dangerous to drive age related).

    but you didn't mention the handling;
    how do you like the handling, is the rear prone to step out?

    In comparison the the 458 was most agile...Logically. However for the size and weight, I think the F12 fares very well. Honestly I haven't pushed that car very hard into turns due to it's nature and also because I have a GT3RS and I utilize that for more aggressive driving.

    The F12 is the ultimate GT car and it does it so very very well.
