Default 288 GTO vs F40 vs F50 vs Enzo

Which one will it be for you?

For me its the F50. There was no car, and there will be no car which is so closely associated to racing. The engine was identical to the F1 engine, except tuned to take normal high octane fuel and with increased capacity for more torque. The gearbox was mounted on to the engine, and the entire body was made of carbonfibre.
So what if it was slower than the F40? It remains fiendishly fast, has probably one of the best soundytracks ever, and looks so beautiful. I love it.

For me its always been the F40. The 288 undoubtedly may be the most beautiful looking among these. But theres something abt the F40 that makes me chose it over the GTO.

Believe it or not, you're actually the second TBHPian to make this mistake!

So take your pick

The F40 for me, just because it's that extra bit hardcore. If it was only looks, the 288 GTO's voluptuous curves usually make up for a wet dream.

i love the F40... for the looks for the performance for the presence ...
to me it is a classic supercar .... i have been in love for 10 -12 years ....

i feel the F50 was a pathetic successor to the F40 .. (no offence)]

cheers

personal fav: the 355 f1 spyder or spider (the way its pronounced)
of the current lot the F 40, the most RAW ferrari ever made, not meant for
panzy metro sexuals, or wannabe rich guys, its ment for the real MEN, and MEN WHO CAN DRIVE.
This is one car that will punish some one who drives it bad. all hail the F 40.
