Do cars like this even matter anymore

FWIW the F12 is quite the laugh in Forza. All engine no handling, even on race tires

Awesome. This (and their other front-engine GTs) is what a true Ferrari is. The mid-engine or hyper car stuff ain't it.

Impressive specs, boring design. The F12 Berlinetta is way sexier.

It kinda looks like what would happen if you asked a 16-year-old to design a Ferrari (albeit a talented but not very creative one), and asked his 12-year-old brother to give it a name.

Superfast is at least more creative than La Ferrari.

Or is it?

This is the first Ferrari I've thought was good looking from the off in a very long time. 

But I want just a Regular Fast with like 300 less HP and a real 6 speed manual.

Yeah, the original was in the 1960s.  It probably sounded dumb then, too.

I really like that rear 3/4 view, but something about it still looks like a car from Grand Theft Auto to me. Or what would happen if you asked the Ferrari designers to draw a Corvette.

And if they had a sense of humor, they would call the hot version "Superduperfast"

It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it was the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily, the government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. - George Washington
