He seems reasonably objective so he can test ride Fezza's in the future!

What I am surprised about is the styling.......comes across as a bit edgy slaby which must be the new Fezza language.......I would rather have the Sofia Loren school of Fezza design which always had drama.

May be it wows in the flesh like the MP12?

Can't deny the V12 sounds glorious and I do wonder what 730bhp will do to the DCT box.

Yet another Ferrari which prior to release looked pretty good, but some how in the real world looks too bulky and big. The other of course is the FF. Some of the spy shots of the F12 somehow showed a far more sleeker shape - this to my eyes just looks too big, and red doesn't do it any favours.

+1 and he says it is smaller than the 599 with same interior space...odd design direction, wonder if Chris Bangle joined Fezza!

I don't know if we are getting old, but Ferrari somehow seem to have lost that delicacy in their designs - beauty is being replaced by butchness! ...and I dislike any design which manages to make 20 inch wheels look too small.

Best all-around supercar in the world? Obviously, he's never driven a McLaren.
A few snippets from the Autocar review:

In corners it is, of course, a very different matter. It should be said that the F12 is not a particularly easy car to drive very fast on road or track, and not just because the scenery is so accelerated by that engine.

This is a car that understeers a little and then oversteers a lot and, at first acquaintance, it’s quite disconcerting. Your disquiet comes not from the power but the steering. Ferrari has not only shortened the car’s wheelbase, it has also substantially increased the speed of the rack which, in my view, is a mistake.

Ride quality on rough roads is adequate thanks to a specific ‘bumpy road’ setting for its suspension available regardless of manettino position


If only a supercar manufacturer could come up with a new type of suspension that offered superb handling, balanced with maximum compliance on bumpy roads - they would be onto a winner!!

The one at Goodwood FOS looked absolutely stunning in gunmetal grey!
