Expanding on the last poll, what is the best looking Ferrari road car in each of these eras:

Beginning thru 250 series (1947-1964)
275 Series thru 365GTB/4 - Daytona (1964-1973) - including all Dinos
365 GT4 - Boxer thru 348 (1974-1994)
F355 - 612 (1994-Present)

Please only vote for the base body style in each model line. In terms of deciding which era a model belongs in for those that span the age breaks, please base the era of membership on first year of production.

I will add up the votes next Sunday.

:work:

I think we have a winner here! Although for 1994-Present, I would have to go with the 512M - although it kind of belongs with the 1974-1994 group as it was an extension of the TR.

My second choice would be the Stradale - Yummy! 355 gets my next vote. :lol:

Glad to see so many agree. Saves Boxer42 the time of tallying the results.

I was tempted to put the 512TR. But I think the F355 is more refined in styling and the 512TR is a little over styled.

I am on board with 3 out of 4 of Enzo250GTO's picks:

1947-1964: 250 GTO
1964-1973: Dino 246 GT
1974-1994: 288 GTO
1994-Present: F355

only difference would be 64-73

1947-1964: 250 GTO
1964-1973: Daytona 365 GTB/4
1974-1994: 288 GTO
1994-Present: F355

I was also temped to go with the 365 GTC/4 but it really only looks good in darker colors.

To be honest the whole question is difficult. I almost choose 275 NART in NART blu over the 250 GTO and I also wanted to go with the Daytona but the Dino 246 is a more timeless design in my opinion. Lower to the ground and very very one of a kind.

Well...let's switch the 355 for a 360...then it would be right.
(You should have seen that coming :wink: )

Yes the 355 is indeed a beautiful auto, but the 360 is just astoudingly sexy. Curves in all the right places with an hourglass figure. Take her top off...WOW! So nice.

I'm still thinking....

I'm in the same boat as Boxer42 but haven't made up my mind about the Dino or Daytona. All the others are the same.

Thought about a 275 long nose too.....

I wanted a Dino 246 to be my frist Ferrari and keep it for life, but at the rate they have appreciated over the last 3 years and it looks like it will continue I'm not sure I can do it now. Hopefully it can be a second Ferrari. I think at one point these cars were down in the $20,000 range. Of course the 20k was higher at that time than know but still lower than the 90k + they are getting now.
