Let's face it. This is probably the closest you're ever going to get. Unless you count yourself among a rarified percentage of the world's one percenters, chances are you'll never get the chance to park a new Ferrari in your garage, let alone this one, the just-introduced F12 Berlinetta. So why not take a virtual spin in the 740-horsepower, V12 grand tourer on Ferrari's website?

The Italian dreamweavers have just activated a new microsite for the F12, and in typically (and appropriately) indulgent Ferrari fashion, it opens with a lengthy video presentation of Chairman Luca di Montezemolo inviting you to experience the company's new car.

The configurator will eventually load, though, and you can twiddle with exterior paint colors, wheels, brake caliper finishes and interior trims to your heart's content. The website also features a number of special features, including sound files, technical notes and so on.

With the most horsepower and highest top speed of any production Ferrari ever, we're guessing Montezemo and Co. already have a rather hefty list of deposits down for the F12 Berlinetta. Thus, if you have the means and you're still on the fence, you might want to get on the phone to your local Ferrari dealer... before waiting for the whole website to load.

      The Aero video was interesting, but the configurator doesn't offer much... I spent a long time picking stitching patterns and colors on the FF, and this only allows you 2 interior choices: tan and blue.

        The only thing the ZR1 has 10x more of is cheap plastics and unsupportive, ungrippy seats. It would probably have similar levels of outright performance, but is still 1/2 the car for 1/3 (or 1/4) the price. A better performance bargain, but hardly a better car.

      To me, the F12 looks like an FF coupe with an even uglier face, thanks to a wider grin and those ungainly chops right underneath. I havent seen the back, but at least it looks more promising. It's just the bucktoothed grin face that makes it look wrong, and said opening is now bigger than ever. In fact, call me crazy, but I would take even the FF's design over this. However, the rest of the car seems amazing enough, 0-124mph in less than 9 seconds is stonking quick.

        The back is pretty bad...look for the official picture set here in an earlier article.

      No manual option. At least the 599 had that. The pussification of ferrari is complete.

      It looks great(!). It's different, striking, has 'exotic' factor, and will turn heads. It's a new direction for Ferrari design, but it's perfectly fine. It will age well . . .
