F12 replacement, still naturally aspirated V12, 800 horses, somehow looks both classy and aggressive, i like it.

Similar engine displacement to the Aston Martin AM-RB 001.

Funny, I just noticed how optimistic the Aston-Red Bull part numbering scheme is. 8)

Didn't know, but still. Ferrari LaFerrari, and Superfast? It would have suited it better in Italian, buy I guess another brand has a 'patent' on Super Veloci

Looks like Ferrari's attempt to build a Corvette - overstyled and without the simplistic beauty of their earlier stable. No doubt it will be blindingly fast and fabulous to drive but why does it have to look like Homer Simpson was let loose on it? :cry:

It really looks like an F12 mated with a C7.

When you do it in Italian no one says a thing, Super Veloce rings a bell?

Maybe they should do it in true McLaren style, and give it a fax-machine name?
As has been pointed out, it's an homage to the Superfast cars from the 60's

This thing has morphed into an over styled mess. I really liked the 599.

Front-engine / GT Ferrari's usually seem to bore the snot out of me. This is no different. :?
