I spotted this wonderful machine on the streets of Zurich and believe it deserves it's on spot in the feature box. The Ferrari 456 was designed by Pininfarina to replace the Ferrari 412 Sports Tourer, which Jeremy Clarkson of top gear famehas criticised the former to be utter rubbish. This fascinating machinery is made in a 2+2 configuration, where it is unique to have a front engine and rear wheel drive set up. The front mounted 5.5 litre V12 produces 436 hp, enough to push the car front a sprint time of 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 302 km/h. This car was very powerful in its days, until the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti replaced it later on. This is a very rare car to be sighted, even on Malaysian roads. I was in love with the car, noticing how smooth the lines was. Here's some photo of the cars I took. This was the best I could take with my Sony NEX-5. Enjoy the shots!
