Red face Which is your favourite Ferrari

Read a write up of Ferrari's new 488 Spider in today's paper and was thinking that it's not a pretty car.

So, two questions for you:

1. Which is your prettiest Ferrari, and
2. Which is your prettiest car ever.

I'll start with -

Ferrari 288 GTO



And
Lancia Fulvia HF

Prettiest Ferrari? I'd go with the 375MM



Prettiest car? I'm with you on the Fulvia coupe, but this was the first car that ever made me stop and stare -





Got to be the boat-tailed Duetto, not so keen on the cam-tailed 70's revamp.

Totally agree with WCA. The Dino was always my favourite.

Shame it's not actually a Ferrari then..

Conceived, designed and built by the Ferrari company, marketed as a new sub-brand that never took off, and now generally accepted to be a Ferrari.

But yes, you are right. It wasn't actually badged as Ferrari at the time although they nearly all seem to have Ferrari badges on now, including the one in Beaulieu Motor Museum.

My favourite of all time is one of these stunning 250 Testa Rossas



I know that it often gets a bad rep and is considered one of the least desirable Ferraris however I have always had a massive soft spot for the 348

Ah yes Auto Carriers Ltd.

Neighbour across the road had one a few months back. Collected it for his uncle who has a dozen for use in films.

Just crying out for a GSX1100 engine if you ask me...

Yeah- just a bit of filler, guv. Make it good, slap on the paint, bit o' polish, Bob's your uncle and Fanny's your aunt. Job's a good'un, squire.

Not quite a Cobra, the much rarer AC Worm. Owned by a mate of mate who let me loose on the paintwork. Designed for one person but if you set the doors to 'lard' you can get 3 full size blokes in.


My favourite Ferrari

Loving the AC Worm, and also like the idea of a big bike engine in an otherwise silly car. Been toying with the idea of a BMW R series powered 2CV as a future fun project.

That looks great Towed - add a sammio body (like the dark red car in the Netherlands)
