Last "serious" V12 I can think of is the Ferrari 599 GTO. That thing was an absolute beast of a car, with a sound that literally scared me each time I hit the engine start button. I thought it was very befitting and deserving to wear the GTO badge. I would rather have one of these then an F12 TDF, simply because its power I can use on the street and not just a track car on the weekends. Sure it's not a manual, which does take some points away, but the sound and ride is all there.

I mean, it's an impressive car, but I don't consider it a "serious" sports car. It was Ferrari's top-of-the-line grand tourer.

What about the last version of the Testarossa (F512 M)? Last series-production, mid-engine 12-cylinder (flat-12!) Ferrari ever made (with a stick!).

I'm pretty sure Ferrari would disagree with that, considering the 599 GTO was able to lap Fiorano one second quicker then the Enzo. I'd say that makes for a pretty "serious" sports car and not just another GT

I mean if you don't mind repairing sticky interior plastics then I say go for it. I wasn't really a fan of the 575 SuperAmerica; interior space felt a little cramped and claustrophobia inducing. If it were me I'd be completely fine with a Jaguar F-Type Manual Transmission...how's that for left field?

You and me both.

And I'm embarrassed by the fact that not only does my brother have an F-Type R, he actually thinks it sounds better than my car.

well fuck me sideways, i come home and the McLaren is bleeding its guts out on the garage floor.

fluid leak is light blue, which usually means washer fluid. or at least i hope so because that's the least worst case scenario. but even so, how could a hose or reservoir burst on a two month old car??!

Who gives a shit about the 'Ring time when you're looking super fly driving that!?
Except you aren’t driving. Jeeves is handling that sophisticated piece of art for you while you sip martinis in the back.
