Personally my 365 5Spd has decent of power off the line. That being said it's a mix of the transmission gearing and the low end of the V12. My Maserati's V8 has much more power, more like the American muscle cars of the day.
That being said, I love to drive the Ferrari on the highway. I rather drive my Maserati Indy around town. I can pretty much burn rice boyz with either though
Personally my collector car will probably be a Maserati Mexico for the historic importance of the car. Sometime next year I am giving the 365 to my wife and purchase a 412 as my driver.
