Very nice, especially the F 12 - when (if) they depreciate to the point at which my 550 has appreciated, then I shall seriously consider a swap. My newest toy arrived on Monday:

John- Since she is a 3.8, I assume she has the Moss box. Can you double clutch her well enough to downshift to first?

Yes, but it is only advisable at very low speed. So long as there is forward motion, there is really no need to change into first, so I only do so when I am about to come to a halt. The Moss box comes in for a lot of criticism, but, if it is in good condition, it works well so long as you don't rush it, or give it too many revs when changing down.

....and my newest toy is still in France. Finally succumbed to seller's remorse over sale of my old 412 and acquired this new one from the Vice-president of Club Ferrari France where she has just emerged from a full service, rebuilt front suspension w/ new ball joints and fresh new rubber, ready for shipment. nota bene, blu sera/beige, for what do I know, I drive blue Ferraris.

Really like the 412. Had a deal on a 365 GT4 2+2 in the 80s, but the dealer at the last moment got in a three year old 308 GTS for the same price. Could not resist the nearly new GTS, especially one with all the hot rod options.

Beautiful car Seth. That color makes it look ageless.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Best regards,
We've all seen rosso corsa 400s & 412s; to my eye, on a large car, it's just too much color, too bold, offends my eyes.

just my 2c.

Love it, has been my DD until I bought the R8 V10. Wish it had the same shift programming of my F12, much more subdued down shift blips. Radio is an ancient Chrysler unit. Have the only one in town here so it gets a ton of head turns. Best to buy a lower mile pre-owned, as every Ferrari 4 seat V12 seems to take a hit. Would never buy a new GTC4, actually like the looks of the FF better than the GTC.

The FF is much faster than a 458, even with the extra weight. 458 over 100 mph is a dog.
