Ferrari 550 Maranello

With a body designed by Pininfarina, this gorgeous GT was the top of the line model for Ferrari when it was introduced, without taking into account the exclusive and spartan F50. It went back to the front-engined, rear-wheel-drive configuration that wasn't used by the model it replaced, the Testarossa line.

Engine: Tipo F133 V12
Displacement: 5,474 cc
Aspiration: Natural
Power: 485 bhp (361.7 kW) @ 7,000 rpm
Torque: 419 lb·ft @ 5,000 rpm
Configuration: Front-engined, rear-wheel drive
Weight: 1,692 kg (3,726 lbs)
0 - 60 mph: 4.6 seconds
0 - 100 mph: 10.1 seconds
Top speed: 199 mph (320 km/h)

I like it because it is a Ferrari, but the engine is in the wrong place.

Everyone knows a Ferrari should be mid-engined.

Cool.

Cool, just.

Modern Ferrari's are among the uncoolest supercars around though. Totally naff image, and performance and looks matched by other cheaper, cooler cars

Fantastically understated.

Cool.

Not in red though. I prefer the dark metallic grey.

Kids eh?

Real Ferraris (Daytona, Testa Rossa, 250GTO etc) have V12s under the bonnet.

Generally I would say that things such as this are not cool but I quite like these. In a nice dark colour I think it is quite restrained and stylish. It lacks the fussiness which blights most modern Ferraris. Cool - just.

Not an Alfa :-(

An elegant classic style, V12, front engined Grand Tourer, styled by Pinifarina, and wearing a prancing on the bonnet!

Its deffinately cool in my book!

you have all got it correct with the front engined V12 idea. everyone knows the coolest Ferraris are front engined V12 GT cars, not necessarily the best Ferraris but definitely the coolest.

il take a black one please

Very, very cool

I nearly didn't vote sub-zero because that could be too vulgar for this car. Does that make sense?
