Did you know, that in China a Ferrari will cost you almost exactly double the price that it is in Europe? No, that's not Ferrari's price. The company may well earn somewhat more than they do in this country, indeed, the lion's share is taken in the form of tax by the state. That means, that China's wealthy are continuously doing something good.

However, those who buy an F12 Berlinetta like this, should take more care of it than one would anyhow, because no-one knows how long they'll still be available. This one has one of the normally aspired engines which draws its performance through the RPM. The maximum torque is reached at 6000 RPM, in the past this was perfectly normal with sports-cars.

The other side of the coin is the CO2 value of 350 g/km. Ferrari can only afford this, because the company also sells small Fiats (although not that many anymore). The question is: how much longer can it last? All the manufacturers have had to make sacrifices. At BMW, it was the wonderful V10 and Mercedes AMG is busy axing the omnipresent 6,3 litres V8.

Ferrari itself has also contributed to the tragedy of the big normally aspired engines. The turbo can do a lot of things better. Except perhaps, evoke emotions. In the future, when presumably, everything having more than six cylinders has disappeared and sports cars are still very fast, the sounds of the last dinosaurs will be preserved on memory-chips and transferred, not only into the interior of the car.

The driver will perhaps miss the way the power kicks in. In the beginning, the idling speed is high, not only to warm up the catalytic converter. Then, well warmed, the unconditional surge of power, regardless of the RPM. No time to think it over. Immediately obeying, like a dog who's afraid of losing its chosen partner. And then, for the icing on the cake, these revs, only for wealthy people who don't care about the risks or for those who have nothing to lose.

Indeed, this Ferrari also has other specialities. The constructors have shifted the engine so far to the rear, that together with the Transaxle-principle, the original axle load distribution of 54% for the rear axle, has almost been turned around. Things like this have a negative effect on the interior. Nevertheless, under the boot-lid with a waist-high loading edge, there are still 320 litres of luggage space, which can be increased by a further 180 litres of space behind the seats.

Of course, the side view of this creation simply wipes away any banal misgivings about space utilisation. The front-end doubles the size of the engine compartment, only to end with a completely lack of overview. A sports-car with a front-camera?, nothing is impossible. But of course, this length is a must. The Scaglietti was even longer. Length in a sports-car is something that the designers can use to achieve perfection. Shortness, on the other hand, is nothing more than a challenge. 10/14
