I really really like the F12 but that...
"The LFA is massively outgunned by the F12 and more expensive, too, but we think it's more than the sum of its beautiful carbon and titanium parts, and not even as the F12's V12 feels like that searing 552bhp 4.8-litre V10. Its £340,000 and its gearbox is simply outclasses by the F12's, and yet we wouldn't like to say which is the most involving drivers' car without trying the back to back. The LFA is really that good."
...says it all.
The F12 is better in every possible way. Every single one. With an LFA, it's just no comparison, as much as I like the LFA.
But Levi, get real. When the tests drop in and people become a bit more familiar with the F12, it will all become perfectly clear.
I even think the Ferrari sounds better, though the sound is pretty equal imo
Klier, while you're absolutely true that the F12 is superior to the LFA in pretty much every objective sense, in Levi's defense, he was quoting the article.
I know. People are starting to give the LFA god-like status. Not completely unjustified, mind.
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta - The gearing.
Great sounding car. It too, is a great looking car.
Nice to see a classical rebirth in Ferrari design. I agree when Clarkson said that there has been a properly 'pretty' Ferrari in ages - since the 575 Maranello as far as I'm concerned - but the F12, that's another story. What a stunner. Got those classic lines of the Maranello with some definite 275 GTB rear-end styling cues. I really want to see it another colour other than red. Despite the classic red being Ferrari's halmark, I have almost always hated it on not just Ferrari's but any car.
More than balanced by these memories:
I'd go with the F12 in the end, but the LFA is brilliant no doubt
never said "LFA is boring to drive"
contrary, some users talks about its gearbox as one of the best ever... (proved by 50*100 pixels ghrapics)
end of OT
No one ever claimed it was the "best box ever". Just ridiculous. No one ever said, it was as quick as any dual clutch box (ofcourse, more reliable and more robust that means nothing in magazine terms, no doubt). As a matter of fact, I have read multiple owner's experiences and the actual owners have been very happy with the gearbox.
To keep this thread from going off-topic, it was just your negative connotations based on one biased Italian magazine subjective opinion you hold as the holy grail really put blinders on your perspective resulting in overly selective arguments on your part that got terribly contradicted by scientific facts. That is all. Nothing more and nothing else.
looking the topic topic of the LF-A, recently my concerns about its gearxob were clearly attacked, and as evidence included "accurate" (50x100 pixels) charts that demonstrate its speed.
you have always fiercely rejected any kind of doubt about the LF-A, worst if criticized .. therefore, if a car can not be criticized, it must be perfect ...
just one italian magazine criticized it? informed first, then write, please
and about subjective opinion... amazing engine-sound or amazing to drive are subjective too..
