Likes &


  • Grippy, fast, and big
  • Outstanding sense of style
  • Evocative V-12 engine sounds
  • Bang & Olufsen rivals Bowers & Wilkins, for our money
  • Still rare, even in an exclusive niche of cars


  • Looks very much like the one-shot Virage
  • Lacks a dual-clutch or any transmission option
  • Isn't as quick as its rivals
  • Navigation system inspires dread


  • Unique Ferrari style inside and out
  • Balanced handling
  • Top-down experience with hardtop convenience
  • Plenty of room for gear


  • A bit heavy at nearly 4,000 lbs
  • Seven-speed automatic is a bit recalcitrant
