Well... not just quite.

But they're both very stunning!

One is at least 300K, the other is 1/6 of that.

Call me crazy, but I'd rather have six C7s.

I feel like the C7 is more sculpted than the F12.

The 2 first pictures looks very similar but front and side views not so much. The Vette looks much better imo.

From bumper to bumper... the new Stingray arguably looks better than a 300k sports car. :happy:

Well the F12 was out before. So maybe we have an American F12.

The C7 has much more defined body lines. The Ferrari is much more rounded.

But sure, if you squint just right...

I certainly see the similarities, but honestly like the vette better. Go figure.

I gotta say the Vette looks better in the 1st 2 comparo photos and perhaps a tie in the 3rd shots

It was very interesting to see just how close the two silhouettes are. I certainly would not mind owning either one of them, but if I have to buy one it would definitely be the Vette. I am just hoping the Vette turns out to be as good in real life as it's hype.

I wouldn't kick either out of my garage

But I like the more aggressive and angular styling of the C7.

It is not fair for me to compare the 2 as I have not driven the C7 yet. Why so many F12 haters the car is just so much fun to drive on the open road. However the C7 makes the F12 look just a smidgen older than it really is , well played by the Stingray.

The F12 looks more like a C6 than a C7. JMO
