    New F458...Baby Enzo? Thread Closed

    The new F458 is a beauty, a "Baby" Enzo.

    570 HP, 0-100 kph in  3.4 sec, only 1380 kg weight, Vmax over 325 kph, not bad at all. Smiley

    Besides the F430 Scuderia, this could be the first Ferrari I could fall in love with. Smiley

    RC,

    You need to start conviencing your wife so you can put a deposit down soon SmileySmiley

    RC,

    You need to start conviencing your wife so you can put a deposit down soon SmileySmiley


    No chance I'm afraid...unless I win the lottery.

    In two years, the 997 Turbo has to go and right now we're deciding on what car(s) to get by then.

    Three possibilities: BMW X5/X6M, Cayenne Turbo has to go, M3 Cab has to go, 997 Turbo has to go, only one family car. Not a very convenient solution.

    Solution 2: BMW X5/X6M, Cayenne Turbo has to go, M3 Cab has to go, 997 GT3 MkII or 997 Carrera Cab PDK instead of 997 Turbo.

    Solution 3: Cayenne Turbo has to go, M3 Cab has to go, 997 Turbo has to go, new Cayenne Turbo (S?) as the only family car. Not a convenient solution either but... Smiley

    Solution 4 ("Fantasy"...winning the lottery solution): selling everything we have in Germany, incl. cars, packing everything incl. kids, moving to Florida, opening some sort of car business (just for fun, so I don't get bored), big appartment with sea view, 3-4 nice cars in the garage, private school for the kids and a smile on my and my wife's face. Smiley........Smiley

    Bottom line is: as much as I like the new Ferrari F458, it has NEVER EVER been so FAR away from my reality than now. Smiley

    Re: New F458...Baby Enzo? Thread Closed

    I showed my wife the pictures of the 458. Mind you she has been around Ferrari's for quite awhile and her response? She liked the look of the CA GT better (she viewed it in the flesh at a Ferrari function). Thought the 458 was a bit over the top.

    Ferrari apparently knew what they were doing with the CA GT and the market segment they were after.Smiley I still believe before new Ferrari owners get into a 458 they will have to buy the CA GT.

    Finally, she wanted to know when I will get my 458 and I told he will be at least a year.Smiley

    Well Nick, I'd say after that statement of your wife you will have to buy a 458 for yourself and a California for your lady.

    Saves you some money. Smiley

    But wait, I guess you have to buy here something different instead of such mundane things like a California. You know, these small tiny ones that twinkle and sparkle... Smiley

    Unfortunatley there is no space in front for a European number plate!

    or better as RC says to Florida, no front plate required at all Smiley

    I have to pry out the 612 from my wife's hands (manual mind you)


    Re: New F458...Baby Enzo? Thread Closed

    Wifes...

    My wife isn't into cars at all but she wants a Cab and it has to be fast. 

    It is not funny at all: I am the one who is into cars in the family but my wife wants me to drive the family car because, and I quote, she "looks so nice in a Cabriolet".

    it is quite funny actually... Smiley 

    wife/gf are just a pain if you like cars. Mine thinks a 50K car is a very expensive one, and that it's ridiculous to spent more on just a car.

    It also seems that she would like to own an aston martin though. Go figure...

    I guess it means that If I want to buy a sports car one day, I won't be allowed to. But if she wants one, she will buy an aston martin.  

    A question remains: what about me if she has one ??? I'm sure she'll still say no to me.

     If she believes she looks nice in a Cab, game over.Smiley

    However, you need to stress the negatives of a cab. Messy hair, wind and sun burn causing premature aging particularly in women and finally the knockout punch, a women driving a Cayenne turbo SUV is way cooler than driving a BMW3 Cab.Smiley

     RC, why don't you get your wife a FIAT barchetta? First she'll say it's gorgeous, and then she'll understand that there is more about a car than the looks

    Actually it isn't the point. Smiley I just remembered that Bangle did the contemporary FIAT Coupe. The Barchetta was done by Andreas Zapatinas. Smiley

    BTW: Bangle recently left BMW, didn't know.

    Can it really be true that Bangle didn't know that he had left BMW??? Smiley

    This page says that Bangle was "Chief Exterior Design: Chris Bangle" when the Barchetta was made in 91, and from 92 he was Director Fiat Design:  http://www.fiatbarchetta.com/prototype/birth.html
