Post New F12 GTO - with pictures

I think that is a car we all have been waiting to see since the 599 GTO was such an amazing machine. Now that official pictures have been leaked I am not too sure if I like it or not. I think it looks a bit too aggressive, too much like a tuner car. It looks very similar with a Mansory F12 or something along those lines in my opinion. I am sure that nothing is for show though, so I guess it's okay, but it just does look less gentleman like than the 599 GTO. What do you guys think?

Don't forget you'll have to buy a California and an F488 before they'll "let" you buy a V12.

Car looks good, F12 was certainly a little more subtle. Never liked the Supra/599 but always loved the 550/575.

I still don't get how people hate on Ferraris and Lambos so much. They make some of the most bad ass cars. It sucks for a manufacturer, when you earn a certain reputation from the people that purchase the car, versus the people who enjoy the car.

I know what you mean, but idk why you think I am hating on it? The 599 GTO and the F12 are the best cars ever made imo. I just think the F12 GTO looks a bit too tuned. Too extreme. but I am sure being Ferrari, every aerodynamic piece has its purpose. So it's okay. I can't wait for the incredible sound!

I wasn't referring to you I was saying in general.

Same here. Never warmed up to the 599 and the 612 was an abomination. I also loved the 550/575 - gorgeous cars that I lust over still. I actually saw a red 575M Superamerica last weekend pulling out of Whole Foods. Prefer the coupe but a rare sighting.

Ferrari's get uglier and uglier with each new model. It looks like a kit car.

I don't think so. Ferrari made the F12 first, then Chevy went to Ferrari and copied some designs and learned from them how to really put high quality leather in the car.

I... uhhh... don't like it. Huge fan of the F12, it's the modern Fcar I would buy if I had the money, but this thing is a bit Hyundai-looking, there's just something about the look that gives me that feeling of a cheap car trying to look sporty and expensive. I can't put my finger on it. I'm sure it will be a performance monster but I wouldn't be able to get over the styling.

I sort of agree with you.

I was really thinking I wasn't going to like this car, based on spy shots.

Everything from the front looks beast!! Not 100% sold on the back yet. Maybe it'll grow on me, maybe it won't.

But who can hate on 110kg lighter and 770hp??

To me, people who hate on Ferrari or Lambo, are the hipsters of the car world.

Some truth to that. Hating just to go against the norm.
