    Hi folks

    I absolutely adore the F12 TRS, in its original clothing

    But I have a problem. I have the feeling the windows can't go down, maybe because of the design of the doors

    One thing is sure, I browsed the whole #f12trs instagram page, and I simply can't find a single picture of that car withe the windows down. Not a single one

    So I start to believe they can't go down, wich dramatically reduces the car's interest in my eyes

    Do you have informations about it ?

    Does someone have a picture of the car with the windows down ?

    Thanks a lot

    The windows are there, just strange angles & low res make them look gone. I don't think they go down.

    It would be strange if they didn't go down. The inner door panel/cards look identical to a regular F12 including the buttons on them. See Shmee's video for the interior shots:

    Edit: looks like center console no longer has the F12 window controls so I guess unless they relocated those it can't go down.

    Just looking at the shapes of the doors, and the angle of the window glass, I don't see how they would be able to be lowered. At around 1:43 in Shmee's video you can see the glass pane has several curvatures....

    I came to the same conclusion. If they can't go down it sucks. I adore that car , but that detail is bothering me

    Maybe we’ll have the answer on 5th May with the unveiling of the 812 Competizione A, featuring side windows similar to those of the F12 TRS:
