Actually Boxer (I live for number and specs)

The engine is a 3586 cc 90 degree V8 which, because of the regulations has had its power output restricted to a certain extent. Despite carrying the obligatory 30.8 mm intake
restrictors, Ferrari managed to get it to produce 445 bhp at 8750 rpm. The 360 GTC uses a six speed sequential gearbox as well.

The displacement of the 65° V12 has been increased to 5,997cc. The engine was enlarged to displace just under six litres and produce just over 600 bhp with the mandatory air-restrictors fitted. The 575 GTC uses a six speed sequential gearbox as well.
The 360 has more bhp per liter and the power curves are totally different, power and torque curves are little higher than the V12 so the 575 is kind of short on that end. V12 are designed to push the limits but it seems that the V8 revs higher. That means she shifts less in the straight and can stay in the same gear in curves because it has more room to play.
Power and torque are not the only thing that wins races. Only two things left to find out who is king of the track on paper (Driver not included)
Transmission ratio and who can out brake the other.
~My 2 cents~
