Yup something about a overhead cam v12 at full throttle. Funny thing is even their v8s sound pretty good. Maybe have to start saving other peoples lunch money as well. I'm quite willing to skip on the matching luggage for the 599 if this will get it sooner :-)

I definately want a 12 cylinder.  What really gets my attention is the Testa Rosa.  I want one.

I'm still saving my lunch money for one :-) There was an older 1978 308 for sale in town for $22k! Problem was it was robins eg blue, just wasn't right for my cheap look at me mid life crisis.

Sylvie, nice article. I have always been enamored of Ferraris.  I saw a Dino in  London when I was a teenager and it was really something.  Besides the beauty of the designs, the sophistication of the engines was always impressive.  As for Beth's question about eco-friendly cars, that depends.  I understand that in Formula 1 they are using electric boost (sort of a mild hybrid).  So, if it becomes something that is used in Formula 1, you should see it in a Ferrari.

There is definitely an allure and a mystique to the Ferrai brand. I rode in one once and it was an exhilarating experience. Nice job of providing background on the history of the company and the manufacturing and engineering processes to produce these cars. I'm wondering given the energy and expense Ferrai put into pulling together a sophisticated green production facility if they have plans to put any of that sustainability muscle into their car design. My guess is not because Ferrai owners likely care more about horsepower and performance.
