The goal here is to determine the ultimate family cruiser, but the choices are what you would least expect, with a heavily modded 1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser going up against a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ferrari/ff/">2012 Ferrari FF</a>.<br /><br />You might anticipate an over-40-year-old <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/oldsmobile/">Oldsmobile</a> to pale in comparison to any modern Ferrari, but this wagon has a ton of secrets under its skin thanks to <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/lingenfelter/">Lingenfelter</a>. First, it packs a supercharged LS3 V8 with a claimed 650 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox. That big upgrade in power is further helped with air suspension and massive Wilwood disc brakes. The result is nothing short of deafening, with blaring yelps whenever the driver even nudges the accelerator.<br /><br />The alternative sounds just as good, albeit in very different way. The Ferrari's 6.3-liter V12 pumps out 651 hp and 504 pound-feet with a part-time all-wheel drive system. While the FF lacks a lot of the hauling ability of the Olds, it makes up for the deficit in handling, luxury, and in many eyes, simply by having the famous prancing horse on the grille.<br /><br />Watch the video to see the thundering Olds taking on the family-friendly <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ferrari/">Ferrari</a>. One thing's for sure; the kid who gets to ride in the back of either car is one lucky youngster.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/11/13/ferrari-ff-oldsmobile-vista-cruiser-generation-gap-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Ferrari FF pitted against Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser in crazy Generation Gap comparison</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/11/13/ferrari-ff-oldsmobile-vista-cruiser-generation-gap-video/">Ferrari FF pitted against Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser in crazy Generation Gap comparison</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 13 Nov 2014 19:58:00 EST.
