Default Ferrari F12

I haven't seen any chatter here about the new F12, the 599 replacement. So waht do you think about it?

I think it sucks. There're no fog lights on the car.

Every model after the oldschool Maranello generation has done NOTHING for me. They're trying to be too flashy....

I think It's a great evolution. Kinda like fine tuning an already great thing (599). I saw this with the Aventador over the Murcielago which seems to lose some fat and gain muscle. The new 6.3L V12 is astonishing

I can live with the 458, but other than that, pre-458 for me

Since I started the thread but didn't give my opinion, let's do it now.

I am a Ferrari fan. My favorites are the 575, 599, 458, 430, 360, 612 and the California.

The 575 is my all-time favorite.

The new F12 is a descendant of the 575 imo. With that being the case, I am very disappointed. The new face of Ferrari is disappointing to me. Looks like everyone is copying Audi by make all the models look similar. I hate this with a passion. I prefer model differentiation. This new car looks a lot like a Kia/Hyundai to me. Especially that rear. There are too many creases all over the car that flow to a point but not with the fluidity I'm used to with a Ferrari. The front look too much like the FF. I don't think the car is ugly, it is sort of cool but just not as attractive as the lineage dictates.

No one can argue with the performance, I'll personally fly to anyone's hometown and chick-slap them if they say 700 hp isn't enough.

The interior has some highlights, could be better but nothing to complain about. I like it.

Overall, it's nice but I would buy a 575 or 599 over this car any day. I'd even buy the California over this car.

I looks good but I am not feeling that crease in the door. I know it for aerodynamic reasons but still looks a bit funky

Too funny. I had to look at the pics 3 times before realizing they really do look similar.

Been 5 months and I have started to like the F12. I still like the other models more but this new car is growing on me.
