    you don't get many better engines than a V-12 Ferrari, my opinion: the Flat-12 in the Testarossa is the best-sounding engine in a road car.

    Far too long, Ferrari are supposed to be technical experts, so the logical idea would be to reduce weight-v12s suck
     
  12. Re: long enuff front end????

    A long front end was the trend of the 60's. So if theirs a long front end the logical idea would to put a V12 in it. Its a classic.
     
  13. Re: long enuff front end????

    long hood + short deck = marvelous looking cars
     
  14. Re: long enuff front end????

    This car is no lightweight, but it is impressively quick. As for being nose-heavy, it's got perfect 50/50 weight distribution (helped by moving the transmission to the rear. Also, the car was designed by Guigaro, who also did the 308.

    When the Daytona was introduced, many were very disappointed in the design ... especially the long nose. They were expecting a mid-engined design response to the Miura from Ferrari. The Daytona was a bit heavy, but performance was excellent for the day.

    To me, it is a beautiful flowing design and the long (did I mention long?) nose was spectacular! Yes, it is long enough. Yes, they needed room for the 12. Yes, I must have one!
