He is making a list and checking it twice. He’s going to find out who’s been naughty or nice. Well, this year I think my name is on Father Christmas’ nice list and for being such a good boy I am going to ask for something a bit special. After thinking long and hard about what I would like the keys to, I came to the conservative conclusion of a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. I say conservative as other cars that came to mind were the likes of McLaren’s P1 and the Porsche 918. Considering those two cost the thick end of £1,000,000 Santa can save a few pennies with my £240,000 gift.
If you think about it, the Ferrari is also a gift that offers value for money. 12 cylinders in comparison to the McLaren’s 8. It’s bigger than a Porsche 918 and more practical. All-in-all I think I’ve justified the F12 to the jolly fat guy, my only other real predicament is what colour to buy it in. I have seen the car in a rather devilish metallic grey, but then it also looks good in black. However, I think much like every first time Ferrari owner I shall ask for my prancing horse in red.
Personally, I think that after Santa’s little Italian elves have put my toy together and the big man has seen it, he will probably put his reindeer on notice. 730BHP VS nine mammals that are likely to take your eye out with their antlers? No contest.
