    I still can't believe they managed to cram a transverse V12 in there. What a masterpiece of packaging, if not the best in engineering.

    I agree with the choice of the f430, it's an absolute work of art

    Mmm, that's some good-looking plastic huh?

    If you're going to go with the best of the Werke, I prefer the M1/M635CSi's M88. Back when engines were engines, and plastic was for beer pong cups.
