    Being polite is so rare these days that it's often confused with flirting.


    Re: What car is that?

    Since there's a 'cavallino rampante' on the fender and it's your 458th post here, my guessing is that it is a 458 Speciale? yes

    Re: What car is that?

    Oops! Haha that's even more special than a 'Speciale' smiley

    So it was just coincidence that it was your 458th post broken heart I really thought I solved a puzzle there.... (I almost felt smart!) LOL!  I should have known though... There's no 'cavallino rampante' on the Speciale's wheelarch....

    Nice car BTW!

    Suzy you have had a very sensitive way to the solution....and the rosso 458 with the black wheels is a speciale so it's not far away...

    Re: What car is that?

    Every LaFerrari has the "1 of 499" plaque. Just like every 599 GTO has "1 of 599".

    It doesn't mean it was the first one built.


    Re: What car is that?

    Oh thanks for the information the salesperson told it to me. So he was wrong.

    Don't think so. Dealing with Ferrari he surely knows better, but he didn't tell you. Smiley

    Re: What car is that?

    What a great solution to the problem of people wanting a specific number from a limited run, and feeling uneasy about certain numbers (e.g., in some Asian markets where certain numbers / digits carry specific connotations).

    And it does not also necessarily mean they will build "only" 499 . Ferrari stopped the progressive numbering with the 550 Barchetta.   Also more Enzos were built then officially announced , same for 16M, 599 SA etc .

    That is quite true. This generic "1 of xxx" gives them the liberty of quietly building more cars than announced.

    Yeah sure. Like McLaren with its spygate scandal, Pagani with the hand-cut slicks on the Top Gear run and Porsche with the VW takeover scandal. Ethics and business are mutually exclusive mate.
