    Really nice!

    Now if Ferrari could take this and shrink it to a small size, smaller than an Aston vantage. Two seats that wonderful modern yet retro front and a classic two light rear and be a convertible. I would find that an awesome package! You’d know why you like to drive!

    Maybe that’s just me...

    This acr is simply gorgeous..it's a real shame that Ferrari doesn't use cochbuilders anymore to make special and limited editions....Touring designs art on wheels.....FErrari in house design could learn a lot from them!

    Any more info on what is going on here? Is that 1 almost complete and 1 f12 going through the process?

    I think I am starting to like these more and more given the 812 styling direction.

    A very mature looking refined design in the same way that new Pininfarina designs were developed.
    With clean lines and no crazy features it is more subtle than what Ferrari has done lately...

    Ferrari should learn from others, take a look at Aston martin and Zagato, they make some limited editions, very exclusive and gorgeous cars...by doing all the design in house, Ferrari is throwing away decades of experience in terms of design. Just remenber how many wonderfull cars, Touring, Zagato, Pininfarina and others have designed for Ferrari. This berlinetta Lusso as gost more class than anything Ferrari released since the 550. I personaly love the f12, but that's the sporty version, this si the classy one, i really am in love with this car....If we compare this to an 812!! yakes!!!!

    Olivier to enhance the beauty of the Touring Berlinetta Lusso what a better way than putting side by side two F12's stripped to the bone like a skeleton. The F12's with these tiny little wheels an just the body on top, reminded me very much of the wooden carts with ball bearing wheels I used to build when I was a kid just for the pleasure of going down-hill.

    Coudn't agree more.Coachbuilt was the glorious era of automobile.

    I have no clue about the two others chassis... I'm focused on the Lusso

    Ahaha Absolutely

    I think the colour and the wheels are not so suited for this car, it is so elegant that in my opinion requires a more subtil colour, and somehow more delicate wheels.

    Blu Pozzi or Scozia would work as well. Those wheels look like the F12 standard wheels but with Touring wheel caps.

    To my eyes it looks like maybe Ferrari was inspired by the vents on the hood for the Portofino hood design..
