They're both smoking, regardless.
I'm not talking about the fact that they're both red and front engined and RWD. I'm talking about the fact that the aesthetic similarities are dramatic and obvious. I don't know of any other car that physically resembles the F12 to this extent. The vent locations and shape, the window shape, the front grille design, the center vent in the hood. From the side and front, they are very similar in appearance, although one is a gorgeous curvy supermodel and the other one... isn't.
