It's never been that way with the road cars. Consider the F12. Sure, there are front-engined rivals that play their games in the same ballpark - the Aston One-77 you can read about here and the DBS both spring to mind - but really there's nothing else like the F12, as its power and price dictate that battle lines are drawn against mid-engined rivals, just as they were for the 246 all those years ago. And we know what happened then.
I know, I know, the F12 Berlinetta looks genteel and calm, but one thing needs to be borne in mind at this point. This is Ferrari's fastest ever road car. Faster than an F40. Able to see off the 599 GTO. Quicker than an Enzo, even.
