Not sure I could easily decide.

Mar 05, 2024,14:52 PM

Not that I will ever have to but deciding between these 2 would

prove very difficult for me.  Ferrari 812 Superfast and the 
Aston Martin DB12.  The allure of Ferrari is strong,
and same for the DB12.  To me both are badass 
personified.  Cudos to anyone who has one,or both.

I am paddling with you in the same boat and will never face this decision in reality.

But... if I had to... I'll take the Italian. I love the body on the DB12, but the grill loses me. It should have a better design.

It's a lot easier than you think...

But not as easy to acquire an 812 Superfast. The AM doesn't hold a candle 🕯️ to it.

Agreed! :-)

812 SF for sure.

Currently I am blessed to have an 812 in my garage, it’s one of the most exhilarating cars I’ve ever owned! You really need to concentrate whilst driving this car, there is a lot of power going through those two back wheels (nearly 800 BHP through two whe...  

Great spec on this one

OP- I'd go 812. Ferrari NA v12 to me is the pinnacle of motoring va v8TT

Gorgeous car, John! Thanks for the photo.

Feel free to add more! The color spec is outstanding.

812 for me...

 By: mdg : March 5th, 2024-16:12
...I think it's one of the best-looking modern Ferraris, and the naturally-aspirated engine is a tremendous bonus. I will spend the rest of the day searching my couch cushions for spare change...

If you come up a little short of change, you can always get a Lamborghini Huracan!

 By: patrick_y : March 5th, 2024-23:44
Also naturally aspirated, and will probably be one of the last naturally aspirated mid-engined exotic-brand cars ever made! And I like to keep my cars until they're old. So the fact that this Lamborghini is partially an Audi is a good thing - as it means ...  

I think a choice between an 812 and this AM is fair ...

AM DBS Siperleggera According to AM this Supperleggra has a better acceleration in the mid band: 80 - 120 km/, better elasticity. Not thinking/dreaming about the DBS? A dream car for me.😃 ...  

Yes DBS is v12 IIRC

I think new aston v8 turbo

 By: TeutonicCarFan : March 6th, 2024-00:17
Likely a monster to drive no doubt

It does seem very promising!

 By: patrick_y : March 6th, 2024-15:35
The previous Vantage was so beautiful and very sonorous to drive. From a driving perspective, that may be my favorite Aston Martin. I haven't driven the new Vantage though.

Give me the AM but I'll take a Ferrari as well

For me....

 By: InHavenPro : March 5th, 2024-20:20
It's an easy decision. Yes, the 812 is a brilliant machine with a naturally aspirated V12, but the Aston may yet get a V12 variant, and I've always felt their designs were far more timelessly sophisticated than anything contemporary from Ferrari. On top o... 

Enzo Ferrari famously said in Italian, "I will build one car less than I can sell."

The watch companies have learned from this!


 By: InHavenPro : March 5th, 2024-23:45

I have not driven neither machine.

 By: patrick_y : March 5th, 2024-23:40
Not sure it's a fair comparison; one has 2/3rd the engine size, 2/3rd the cylinders, and less than 2/3rd the price tag. But I'm sure both cars are likely to be wonderful machines. I found the DB9 to be much more grand tourer than sports car. And I'm told ...

The 812 shall be compared with the DBS Superleggera! It has a V12 and the comparable power. I know the DBS Superleggera very well and can say that is is indeed faster in the elasticity mid range than the 812….

Aston anytime

The Ferrari is the better performance car but the Aston is an Aston….it is the choice of James Bond and you drive it when you wear your elegant suit (no tie needed) and fine leather shoes. You drive the Ferrari when you wear your jogging pants and Birkens...
