    I joined the v12 club.

    This car is amazing. Feels effortless. The motor just revs without concern. I am floored how it all feels.

    I have lusted after an f12 for years. Only ever sat in one before today. Never driven. Found this TDF Blue example with help from the forum and pulled the trigger.

    She arrived today and Wow.

    I will add more thoughts as I process. But wow.

    Was this from Ferrari of Atlanta? I was interested in that car as well.


    Thank you


    Thanks

    I will grab some. It is Natural Leather with blue diamond stitching, dash is blue with blue stitching as well.

    Thanks

    I truly wasn’t prepared. Called my buddy after the first drive and said something along the lines of .....

    “This is a serious machine meant for serious people. Completely different vibe from the 458.”

    Awesome. Beautiful spec!


    This is from Hyland Limited. It wasn’t on the normal sites. A member Of the forum pointed it out to me.

    One owner. 2015. 5K miles. 380k original sticker. Had the major items I was looking for, so I jumped.

    If I hadn’t pulled the trigger on this one. I was going to checkout yours when I was in Atlanta in a couple weeks. Clearly that wouldn’t have happened now, but was the game plan.

    ... so very very true

    Correct. No Shields.

    I do want them however. Will see if a set shows up that I can grab.

    First off, Congratulations on your new F12.

    In regards to the fender shields. If you want to install them per OEM you may want to take note that the if the F12 is ordered new with shields then the fenders have an outline indent for the shields as well as the holes drilled for the shields as they are installed with nuts behind the fenders (see picture below). Now, that does not mean you cannot find alternative means of installing such as drill the holes, or dremel off the shield posts, use decals instead of shields, buy second hand fenders with the outline indents and have them painted/installed. I am just pointing out some info you may not know and may want to consider. I hope that is of some help. Well done on your new F12. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I have the shields on my F 12 and I might want the "without" version you have, to have them painted at Marco's.
    Maybe we could help each other ?

    I have been looking for an F12 for six months and most of the Carrs have been offered for a long time---makes sense that deals can be made.

    The 458 has just enough power that once the tires are warm you can floor it a fair bit and scoot around. The F12 is like riding a large horse, (or small dragon), and requires more focus when pushed. But you can’t put down the throttle constantly like the 458.

    On the flip side, in sport and auto you can cruise for hours, one handed in relative silence and relaxation. Something that the 458 doesn’t do nearly as well.

    Perfect point. I am used to be fairly liberal with the gas and in the f12 I am counter steering all over the place if
    I get frisky.

    Congratulations! Beautiful color. I’ve had mine since November. Every time I drive it, I still can’t believe I own an F12. Enjoy!
