Looking for advice about which model to buy

Hey guys.
I have seen 612 several times and absolutely love it.
But its performance is questionable.
I want a ferrari,or supercar in general, that is modern,elegant looking,and not too loud.
And actually i prefer 2+2.

I do not really have a price range in mind but i think aventador is bit too much so any car cheaper than that is okey.

Thanks.

Welcome to Ferrari Life

I have a 16M and 612 HGTS and the 612 is not far off in performance. The sport package makes a considerable difference in sound and handling with slightly quicker shifting. I upgraded to the 599 modulars which helped plant the car even better in corners.

It is a very impressive Ferrari

Welcome to Ferrari Life. Doug is correct and the 612 is very quick with a 540 hp V12 and a quarter mile time of around 12.25 seconds at 118 mph. This is as quick as the most powerful Shelby Mustang for 2012 and not quite as quick as a Corvette Z06. In other words, very fast indeed.

I have to agree with Doug and Terry! The 612 is very powerful 2+2 and I think it is the most understated elegant Ferrari.
