I forgot to add that I think the absolute coolest Ferrari ever is definately the F-50.
Well if you want to talk about coolest Ferrari ever, IMO it's the blue car (#7) in this painting=>
Stirling Moss won the 1960 Goodwood Tourist Trophy race in Rob Walker's Ferrari 250GT SWB. After lapping the field twice Moss decided he could relax a little bit and finished the race listening to the car radio.
How cool is that?

I am getting myself in trouble... I guess we or I could say if catagorized the 1960 250GT SWB definately is "the coolerst" Ferrari at that time, and still is in proper context soley as a car. You are correct sir, and will get no argument from me.
Grand Prix Legends has an autographed Sterling Moss print of the winning car!

Na! Your not in trouble and it isn't that tough. The great thing about Ferrari's and their heritage is that there is something for virtually anyone. There are so many great cars you can make an argument for as the best.
Incidently, I did some research on the prices of the Testarossa on the FerrariUSA website and edmunds. A Testarossa ranges from $40K to $75K, a 512TR is $95K to $110K, and the F512 M is a stout $160K. Each successive model year was (in general) produced in smaller numbers. The 512TR is more scarce than the Testarossa, and the F512 M is very rare. I think I read that only 75 were built for one year. So yes, depending on your price point, this particular dream car is within reach for many buyers/collectors.
Also, the 600 does look athletic.......like a Corvette. I hope that's just the camouflage.

similar to the one I saw in a magazine (sorry can't recall which one.)=>

Wrinklemash, don't forget that the later TR variations, while smaller in production runs also had far better performance than their predecessors. By then the TR was a seasoned design and more reliable as well. Not that the original TR had major issues.

For all intents and purposes, the 600 IS the new Testarossa.
The power of suggestion:

Interesting that they plan to revive the Testarossa name but red valve covers are the norm in current Ferraris IIRC.
#24 of 46 New 600 Imola

The Ferrari 550 Maranello has won several sports cars races, but will the new 600 Imola be raced?

I'm a big fan of the GT, personaly I think that anything resembling a 250GT is the true essance of the mark. I followed a Scagletti the other day, and was thinking how much nicer a smaller version of this car would look. Now dreams will come true.
#26 of 46 I love the Ferrari F50 too

I have not mentioned the Ferrari F50 in my posts and well, I have reviewed my favorite Ferrari's, and have to say the F50 is in my Top 3 ... something I failed to mention previously.
