Some photos lifted from Asphalte CH's road test of the F12. The Maranello and the F12 are similar in size. The 599 is much larger than either.

Terry,
three wonderful cars, daughters of different eras, I had fortune to have the first (now I have the 575 practically the same), an indescribable pleasure to go for a walk with this car or only to admire...

Regarding body design, I prefer marannello's series, line is without time, between 100 years will be beautiful like today ....
F12's body is very modern and aggressive, but with front too similar to FF and I think that will become old ....
599 is larger but have a personal front (good or bad depends on your taste).
On technical side there are no stories, from 550 to F12 there are a big steps:
550 is a bicycle in respect to 599 ..
599 is a bicycle in respect to F12 ..
550 what is in respect to F12 ? .... child tricycle? .. ahahah
That's joke obviously .....

I have driven only 550 and 575, never 599 or F12, that my opinion is partial, I think from 550 to F12 the guide like old style (sensation included) is decreasing but the easly guide is increasing like a pure performances.
All three cars are a milestones of car's world!
Anyone who has any of These Cars is a very lucky person and refined tastes ...
In an ipothetical collection would be nice to have all three ... I started with the first, in the next future ...? .. bicycle ! ahahahah

Guys, That Is My personal opinion like not a true absolute ....

I have driven the F12 and was very impressed. I love the way it looks. But to me it's too close to the 458 in experience. Less V12 GT and more sporty. I think that Ferrari, with its growing line-up, is getting more confused about where a car should be positioned and the overlaps are getting bigger.

458 + 550 is for me a much better, and cheaper, choice than an F12. But of course, just my opinion. No doubt it was impressive to see the F12 drifting out of the Bus Stop chicane at Spa Francorchamps yesterday.

The 599 feels big when driving. The power is great, but it still handles like a bulky car. I still enjoy the feel of a 550/575 and that old school engineering. I am curious to drive the F12 though. If it's like the 458, the capabilities of that car will be frightening.
