Yes they are making a 60th Anniversary special - 599 GTB, 275 GTB, F355 GTS, Daytona and something else?the Lamborghini episode on Top Gear hehehehe really nice!
aren't they going to make a Ferrari episode this series? That should be nice!
I have tried over the years to like the Countach, but I just can't. Everytime I see one I get a mental image of a tank or an armadillo. It deserves it's place in history as a legendry car and I'm sure it contributed something to the evolution of the supercar, the same as Elvis and The Beatles did for music, but I don't have to like them either. I'd have been a Stones, Who and Led Zep man if I was into music in the late 60's early 70's.The pure form Countach, without all the wings and addons, looks great, I mean considering when it was designed, a real mind blower way back then, that's gotta count for alot, like Jimi Hendrix's original pyschadelic stuff, it's been copied and even bettered, but the original is still incredible to me!
hehehehehehehe I just don't get it right!Now you have gone an upset the F40.
No, the Enzo is also a V12. Very different concept from the F50 though. The F50 was designed to be a barely road legal F1. Push rod suspension, engine bolted to the carbonfiber tube, etc. The F50 engine was adapted from the 93 F1 unit and detuned for road use. The Enzo was designed to be a road car from the start.PS - re: the F40 and F50, I love each of them, but the F50 is a V12 after all, and I think that makes it the only mid-engine "consumer" V12 Ferrari.... am I correct on that (not counting the Flat 12's)? Seems the F40 is more raw and I'd say more competition oriented with turbos, and F50 more easy to drive as an onroad GT while being just as fast. So I vote for the normally-aspirated with V12 purity, F50!
Having driven both (admittedly the Countach only briefly but that was plenty), you can, and I have, driven the Boxer across continents and not do permanent damage to your back, neck, and internal organs. Once you settle in, the Boxer is quite a comfortable and pleasant place to be. The Countach just is not.So I vote Boxer, hands down... more beautiful, with a body design that to me harkens back to 60's and early 70's endurance racing, and at least equal performance to the LP400. I've read more comfortable and easy to drive also, although I've never driven either. But for my money... the Boxer!!
