Im not a Ferrari hater. I would love to see Ferrari playing hard again.
But when i see that 488 GTB is barely as fast as Mclaren Mp4-12c i call it a soft play. I hope that 488 "Speciale" will be special for real - it will be the chance for Ferrari to get in game again.
So there are two possible options :
Ferrari finally understands that they have to start to be on the top again and 488 "Speciale" will have incredible performance that will be proved in many tests and direct comparisons with the best (720S, Huracan Performante, 991 GT2 RS etc)
or they will continue their soft play - from the one side they will say that 488 "Speciale" is faster around the Fiorano than the Laferrari, 0-200 km/h in low 7s etc but the car will NEVER be allowed to be tested - similiar situation to F12 TDF ...Why ? You all know why...
What about Ferrari 812 ? It is an absolutely amazing super(GT)car , its easily one of the best cars that is currently produced when we talk about whole package (look, handling, luxurious, handling, steering, sound, throttle response, engine itself, comfort for that kind of car etc) but its performance level wont be staggering. Not even close to the level of 720S. Im pretty sure that 812 is slower than even 650S.
My opinion is that when Ferrari were proud with their products they were tested many times ( F430, Scuderia, 599 , 458 Italia ). What about current situation ?
