    If I had a car collection (and could afford it Smiley), the TDF would be in it for sure. This is a car which scares me a little bit and I would understand it as some sort of a challenge, when I'm in the mood. Smiley The TDF is a monster. Smiley

    I agree  - that's why I have put it away for the winter.

    Well, with all your other fantastic toys, you won't miss it, S.. Smiley Smiley

    Just get the best gt car with v12, all the rest is a diffrent world, the v12 sound, the speed, the gt feeling that makes you ride long trips with your wife, do 350 on the autobahn, 0-200 in ca 8 sec, you have everything you can dream of!

    since you are not using the car for track days....then you already have the best option.

     

    buy the 812

     

    I would argue my Aston Vantage V12S fits that bill too, especially with the dogleg. Smiley

    This.

    I've seen two paints recently, a red and a blue, that looks fantastic... and they were on a Chrysler and a Ford. Probably cost $250 and looked as good as an exotic IMO.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Saw this red. Looked as good as a $20-30K multi-layer Ferrari paint IMO.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    You can get such a nice red metallic at a Renault as well, looks a lot like the Ferrari paint. kiss

    .... because it is the same company who makes both. The price per kilo is probably pretty close Smiley

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    The front looks really weird but need to see the car in real life. I also needed to see the 458 Speciale a few times before I liked it... Anyway I am sure this is going to be a rocket


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    hmmmmm...so far so good but not mind blowing. you know what, i am going to say something weird now: i kinda prefer the GT3RS 991.2 in the looks department. am i getting old/senile/tasteless/......????πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Actually, in my book, AP is Lamborghini, maybe Ferrari and PP is...Rolls Royce, while Rolex is Bentley. Smiley Smiley

    Now, I said it...Peter got old. He needs a Rolls rather than a 991.2 GT3 RS or Ferrari. Smiley Smiley
